The UC Woody Biomass Group will be hosting a webinar presentation on Tuesday, June 3 2014, by Dr. Ouafik El Kasmioui from the University of Antwerp. Dr. Kasmioui will cover status of district heating in Flanders, an assessment of the techno-economic feasibility of district heating projects, and introduce some regional case-studies.

About the Presenter

Dr. Ouafik Kasmioui is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Antwerp. He is currently working on the techno-economic feasibility of decentralized biomass conversion technologies with regards to each step of the process chain from the biomass resource to consumer energy delivery. His research interests include biomass conversion and biomass supply from a technical, environmental (LCA) and economic viewpoint; and the impact of (renewable energy) policy measures. Dr Kasimioui has also worked on the economic feasibility of different biomass conversion technologies and the financial, energetic and ecological feasibility of short rotation woody crops for electricity and heat with data gained from an operational SRC plantation that was established within the framework of a larger EU-funded project (POPFULL, http://webh01.ua.ac.be/popfull/).
