Event description
ICT-BIOCHAIN Demonstration Day

About this Event

ICT-BIOCHAIN is a BBI-JU Horizon2020 project looking to identify opportunities for ICT to increase the efficiency of biomass supply chains for the bio-based industry.

On the 16th of October, as part of Bioeconomy Ireland Week 2019, the Institute of Technology Tralee (IMaR and Shannon ABC) and the Irish Bioeconomy Foundation will be hosting a Knowledge Transfer Demonstration Day where companies with novel ICT, IoT and Industry 4.0 solutions for the bio-based sector will demonstrate their technologies in a real operating environment. The day will involve the following three site-visits in and around Co. Limerick:

- Coillte's Connected Forest: overview of Coillte's forest inventory and Earth observation programme to support strategic and tactical planning; and how this information is used to support harvesting and timber supply. A number of these technologies will be discussed and demonstrated on a forest site.

- Celignis will demonstrate their Near-Infrared Spectroscopy rapid biomass analysis which uses custom models and proprietary software, as well as their provision of Biomethane Potential data for Anaerobic Digestion .

- BHSL's remote monitoring and control systems as well as their patented Fluidised Bed Combustion Technology which converts poultry manure into heat and electricity for use on the farm.
