Energy advisor to new Environment Minister to speak at Bioenergy International expo & conference 2010

Following the resignation of the Czech Minister of the Environment Jan Dusík in March, Vladimír Vlk, energy advisor for the new Minister of the Environment Rut Bízková, will now make the keynote presentation at the upcoming Bioenergy International expo & conference next week in Prague on 5-6 May.

Dusik resigned because he felt that the prime minister had put him under undue pressure to agree a 25 billion crown (€0.98 billion) plan for the reconstruction of a big coal-fired power plant, Prunerov II, which is the country’s largest producer of greenhouse gases. His replacement Rut Bízková, worked as a spokesperson for CEZ’s coal-fired power plants in the second half of the nineties, is likely to give the plant the go-ahead.

Vladimír Vlk joins other key speakers at the event including Ivan Soucek, CEO, Ceska Rafinerska, Marc Gillmann, Bioenergy expert, Total, Miroslav Bažata, Head of biofuel sales, Agropodnik, Robert Gmyrek, Director, Biofuels Department, PKN Orlen, Dag Roger Rinde, CEO, Statoil and many more.

You can listen to over 40 top level speakers for only €575 a day, or €975 for both days, and the price even includes a visit to a nearby biodiesel plant on the 4th May. The tour will be held at Preol’s state-of-the-art biodiesel plant in the industrial region of Lovosice.
