JANUSZ GOLASZEWSKI (M) has completed PhD in 1990 and the title of professor has received in 2003. He is the head of the interfaculty unit – the Centre for Bioeconomy and Renewable Energies (CBEO) of the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn (UWM) and the President of the Board of the Baltic Eco-Energy Cluster in Gdansk (BKEE). The CBEO specializes in bio-based technologies for biomass production and processing to different products. He coordinates R&D projects, including multidisciplinary research on innovative technologies of biofuel production: generation of biogas in small biogas plants, bioethanol in lignocellulosic and sugar biorefineries, and bio-oil in algae production plants. The concepts of biofuel production developed in the frame of the projects assume a closed cycle of mass and energy circulation The EU projects (7FP, H2020, ERANET) were/are orientated on implementation of the biorefinery concept in practice, improvement of energy efficiency in agricultural production and eco-energy facilities (biogas plants), and sustainability of bio-products in the context of regulations. He participated in the BSR-InnoNET program developed by the Ministries of Economy from the Baltic Sea Region countries, at the EU working groups (CWG SCAR) on “Agriculture & Energy” and “Integrated Biorefinery”, EuroCASE Bio-economy Platform and EIP-AGRI Focus Group (energy in rural areas).
