This year’s Annual Spring Biocongress was held on 22-23d of March in Saint Petersburg, Russia and gathered more than 100 participants from 7 countries from public and private sectors, as well as academia. Despite economic, currency and investment crisis, bioenergy business in Russia remains to be an attractive field and provides new opportunities for development. This event aimed at creating a platform for discussing current topics in the industry, providing new opportunities for building relationships between producers, equipment manufacturers, investor and traders.
