The REGATEC 2019 speakers will be personally invited in order to create a well composed conference centred around the conference topics. However, if you feel that you have an interesting contribution related to bio-, electro- and thermochemical conversion of biomass/waste to biomethane or landfill gas don’t hesitate to contact us.
Please note that for commercial players to be considered as speakers we expect an active support of the conference (e.g. sponsorship or exhibition).
