Coffee break

  16:00 Panel discussion Biofuels – opportunities and risks

Political debate »biofuels« organized by the Heinrich Böll Foundation with experts invited by Heinrich-Böll-Foundation.

Biofuels – especially sugar cane alcohol and biodiesel – are an alternative for cleaner energy and able to generate income for the rural sector. Brazil is already the worldwide leading producer of alcohol. A significant part of this production is cultivated in a monoculture regime which has resulted in several environmental and social problems. The panel will discuss the different and polemical aspects of biofuels in Brazil.

Chairman: Hamilton Moss,
CRESESB - Brazilian Solar and Wind Energy Reference Center, Rio de Janeiro Brazil
“ Solar Silicon production for Export from Brazil”

The objective of the workshop is to discuss the minimum requirements for processing silicon to get functioning photovoltaic cells. Brazil is one of the largest producers and exporters of metallurgic silicon worldwide and is considering to start an inexpensive silicon production suitable for solar cells. A cooperation of partners from other countries would be desirable for all sides.

  1. Brazil - a major supplier of metallurgical Silicon (Representative of Silicon Production Company or Dr. Hamilton Moss)
  2. Actual market situation for solar silicon (Nils Waterstrat, Q-cells AG)
  3. Industry requirements for solar silicon (Dr. Volker Hofmann, Q-cells AG)
  4. Processing of Silicon - from metallurgical to solar grade silicon (Dr. Volker Hofmann, Q-cells AG)

Target group:
The workshop addresses managers and technicians of utilities, representatives of governmental and non governmental organizations involved in the development of Silicon production in Brazil and the solar silicon industry.
