The subsidiary DLG AgroTechService, with its headquarters in Beijing, is heavily involved in the organisation. The Sino-German BioEnergy Annual Conference, which takes place at different locations each year, welcomed 420 experts this year from all over China. It has establishhed itself as a leading platform in this area. Representatives and decision-makers from 32 provinces, as well as German and Chinese bioenergy companies, researchers and experts, attended the conference.

In an accompanying foyer exhibition, a total of 34 German and Chinese companies presented their products and services to a qualified specialist audience. The conference was supported by Dr. Meierhofer from the Energy Affairs Department, Bioenergy, of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL). 

In his opening speech, he stressed the close cooperation between the two countries in the field of bioenergy and in his presentation provided an insight into the Federal Government’s current policy.
