During several visits including, for example, a tour through a biogas plants for renewable materials, the visitors from the Baltics got highly competent information on the respective technologies and the daily production processes. Every presentation and company visit was followed by a detailed discussion between the German experts and their visitors. The delegates from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania were particularly interested in precise areas of application and the profitability of the energy production facilities.
