Toulouse one of France´s most historic and fascinating cities

Here is an inspiring article from Lonely planet about Toulouse.

Known to locals as La Ville Rose (The Pink City) it’s one of France’s most historic and fascinating cities. Toulouse is a cosmopolitan melting-pot that’s awash with culture, art, industry and architecture, not to mention some of the tastiest French food this side of the Côte d’Azur.

The Basilica of Saint-Sernin is a church in Toulouse, France, the former abbey church of the Abbey of Saint-Sernin or St Saturnin. Apart from the church, none of the abbey buildings remain. The current church is located on the site of a previous basilica of the 4th century which contained the body of Saint Saturnin or Sernin, the first bishop of Toulouse in c. 250. Constructed in the Romanesque style between about 1080 and 1120, with construction continuing thereafter, Saint-Sernin is the largest remaining Romanesque building in Europe, if not the world.

Toulouse’s university was founded in 1229 and is now home to more than 100,000 students.

And now one can also add that Toulouse will host the 5th International Conference on Renewable Energy Gas Technology, REGATEC 2018.

France the new hotspot for biomethane

France is nr 3 in Europe when it comes to nr of biogas plants. The biogas production has almost doubled from 2010 to 2015 and the nr of biomethane plants increased almost an order of magnitude from 2011 to 2016. However, the most interesting is the ambitious targets for 2023 and 2030, and the strong associated incentives.

We foresee a strong and rapid development of the French biomethane market in the years to come and are happy to provide REGATEC 2018 as a vibrant meeting point for the biogas, gasification and Power-to-gas community.

Looking forward to see you in Toulouse, 3-4 May 2018.
