Speakers

The REGATEC 2018 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 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.

Latest research on small-scale methanation in combined systems at TUM
Sebastain Fendt, Dipl.-Ing., Technical University of Munich
Sebastian FendtSebastian Fendt is a chemical engineer working as senior scientist, lecturer and project manager at Technical University of Munich (TUM). Since 2015, he leads a research group at TUM, Institute for Energy Systems, focussed on the energetic utilization of biomass and biogenic waste materials. He is active in the field of fundamental as well as applied research with a focus on technological developments in biomass combustion, gasification and thermal pre-treatment. His special interest is on the small-scale SNG production with renewable power integration. He manages research projects on national as well as international level in cooperation with partners from research and industry.
