With a team of experienced engineers, economists and jurists and a multilanguage staff to coordinate international contacts, ETA has built a sound and wide-ranging experience in the development, application and implementation of Renewable Energy systems, and especially of the Biomass projects. Since 2007, the company has been looking to use bioenergy for Kyoto related targets, knowing that Kyoto will be impossible to implement without the large share that bioenergy can offer, and on the other hand that biomass needs in many cases the driver of the Protocol targets to lead to concrete projects. ETA is also the organiser of the (now) yearly European Biomass Conference (www.conference-biomass.com)

ETA has gained a large experience in research, demonstration and promotion actions in the field of bioenergy and biofuels, e.g. conversion and use of liquid biofuels (like bioethanol and pyrolysis oil) for energy production and utilisation as transport fuels.
