Pittsburgh, PA / Alpen, Germany – America's first international exhibition and conference on energy from biomass and waste (EBW) will enjoy strong support from sponsors and partners. Sponsors include: the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection; Green Power, Inc.; West Penn Power Sustainable Energy Fund, Inc.; Herbert, Rowland & Grubic, Inc.; The Pennsylvania State University; and media sponsor Biomass Magazine. EBW, which will be held on September 25-27, 2007 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA, is also supported by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture; Steel City Biofuels; and the Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.

'Converting biomass and waste to profit' is the theme of the trade show and seminar program. EBW's mission is to educate all relevant stakeholders about the ecological and economical benefits of clean energy, and to create an international marketplace for bioenergy and energy-from-waste technologies in Pennsylvania. The event is organized by Freesen & Partner GmbH, a Germany-based consulting and event management firm with partner offices in Europe and in the United States.

'The Biomass Energy Center at Penn State coordinates and facilitates research and outreach across the University, building teams to address the complete value chain of biomass energy systems,' says Tom Richard, Director of the Biomass Energy Center. 'We support EBW because the event's mission coincides with our goals. We welcome the opportunity to network with companies, state agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and citizens throughout the Commonwealth and beyond.'

The Penn State Industrial Research Office is the University’s gateway to innovation, available to assist companies in accessing research opportunities from centers such as the Biomass Energy Center, Hydrogen Energy Center, and the Center for Sustainability. Personal attention is given to company representatives to assess their technical needs and facilitate linkages to appropriate Penn State resources.

'We are very pleased to have strong partners such as Penn State supporting our venture,' says Dr. Ines Freesen, Managing Director of Freesen & Partner. 'Their commitment is testament to the importance of the event. EBW will bring together two industries which may seem diverse – bioenergy and waste management – but they have a lot in common when it comes to clean, reliable energy from domestic resources.'
