Biomass for Bioenergy

General description

Well well, we have been expecting you!

And you are not getting away without at least a "green talk".

Let's see some Biomass energy facts:

Biomass is all plant and animal matter on the Earth's surface. Biomass is anything that is alive. It is also anything that was alive a short time ago.

Chemically, biomass is made of complex polymers of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. It also contains small amounts of nitrogen and inorganic materials.

Biomass energy is renewable, which means we can make more biomass in time.

We can always grow more plants.

Enough with the theoretical knowledge! BEST Brasov has a better idea. Why not discover some new fun facts about biomass energy at our amazing Summer Course?

There will be plenty academic activities and company visits.

Not quite convinced are you? How about we throw in a mix of energy, great people and crazy parties that we?ll rock your world? And for dessert, we offer a breathtaking view of the most beautiful city in Romania.

The city provides a mix of wonderful mountain scenery and medieval history with german influences in the old town. During summertime, when the flowers are in full bloom it really is a picture postcard kind of place. Brasov is definitely worth it. As some people say, "Why bother coming to Romania if you're not going to see Brasov?"

So think carefully. What other plans could ever replace an experience like this one?

Put some money in a jar. Put your plans on paper. Begin living differently. Amaze yourselves. We promise it will be fun!

Sooo, what are you waiting for? APPLY now and paint your summer with the BEST memories and BEST people!
