SBF CLUSTER INTEGRATION AND LINKING
Our Strategic Goals:
the development of technical activities and the administrative management of the SBF Cluster.
and communication, promotion and dissemination of the consortium’s activities.
the link with other entities.
the development of market strategies.
The institutions and companies that make up the BCS Cluster synergistically combine their resources and capabilities, with successful previous cooperation experience. Its main motivation to associate is to promote and facilitate the production and use of solid biofuels as a renewable and environmentally friendly source of energy, through the generation of scientific and technical information.
Building of Ecotechnological Innovation and Bioenergy Inauguration
With an investment of 40 million pesos contributed by UNAM, the Ecotechnology and Bioenergy Innovation building was inaugurated on the UNAM campus in Morelia. In the 1,800 m2 of construction, different laboratories and research groups will be housed, among which the following stand out: The Solid Biofuels Cluster (which is part of the CONACYT-SENER Mega Projects called “Mexican Centers for Energy Innovations”, specifically of the Mexican Center of Innovation in Bioenergy), the Unit of Ecotechnologies and the National Laboratory of Ecotechnological Research and Sustainability (LANIES).
Production Processes of Agricultural and Forestry Biomass for Energy Use
The participants of the Agricultural and Forestry Biomass Production Processes Course learned the characteristics of thermal installations and the mechanisms for the treatment of emissions in the industrial sector. Taught by Dr. Borja Velázquez Marti at the UNAM Morelia campus.
Workshop on the use of biomass in process plants
The SBF Cluster, ANAPROCI and REMBIO (Mexican Bioenergy Network) will jointly hold a technical meeting aimed at processing plants, on renewable energy in the citrus industry, with the objective of analyzing options to reduce the use of fossil energy in the industry and replace it with biomass residues, typical of the processing plants and other sources in the region.
