Seminar on Bio-Fuel in Zagreb, June 4-5.
31 May 2005
The Green Network of Activist Groups (original acronym ZMAG) association, in cooperation with Bio-Power UK cooperative, will organize a seminar in production of bio-fuels. The seminar will take place at the facilities of Zelena Akcija in Zagreb, June 4-5.
The seminar will introduce the â€œdo-it-yourselfâ€? systems designed to turn potential waste into valuable fuel, save money, protect the environment and reduce the use of oil in transportation.
John Nicholson, the founder of Bio-Power UK cooperative, will talk about the technology of production of bio-fuel in the two days of the seminar.
The first day will be dedicated to theory and basics of bio-fuels, their capacities and meaning they could have in the context of climate changes and wars for oil. The second day of the seminar will bring an introduction to various methods of production of bio-fuel. Bio-fuels and fuels extracted from oleaceous plants (sunflower, beet-roots, palm oil...) are commonly known as â€œbio-dieselâ€? in Croatia.
The seminar will be given in English language, without translation, but there will be opportunity to make a break and give more details on the discussion. Due to the restricted number of participants the seminar can take, the applications are obligatory on firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 091/535-1643 (ask for Drazen Simlesa, ZMAG coordinator).
Saturday, June 4, and Sunday, June 5, at 10:00 hours, at the facilities of Zelena akcija, Frankopanska 1, 10000 Zagreb
