The event will be opened on 21.10.2010 with lectures on current developments in waste management, examples of material and energetic recycling as well as their energy efficiency. On 22.10.2010 some lectures will deal with the special problems of alternative fuel analytics. This year the special focus will be on the chlorine analytics and the determination of the share of biomass. Sampling as a basic prerequisite to get a representative analysis sample will be the subject of other lectures, in which automated solutions should be at the forefront of the discussion. Furthermore, a report will be given on the present state of the automation of the pressure drilling machine from Nordhausen. For further information please refer to Dr. rer. nat.
