Given the recent escalation of events related to COVID-19 the Conference BSE 2020 was held online in the ZOOM-based platform. The event was a true success and we counted with about 200 participants from all over the world.

The plenary session was delivered by Prof. Fadi Dohnal, from Private University for Health Sciences, Prof. Mohamed Bouaziz from Higher Institute of Biotechnology of Sfax, Tunisia and Dr. Jorge Ferreira from the Department of Resource Recovery and Building Technology University of Borås, Sweden.
After that, we had parallel sessions in the fields of Bioenergy, Renewable Energy, Nanomaterials and Waste Recovery, Food technology, Precision Agriculture, Agricultural and Livestock Engineering, and Engineering. We had 51 presentations from North America, South America, Central Europe, Scandinavia, Baltic countries, and Eastern Europe.
The poster session will be held online from May 6th until May 8th.
