The Centre of Agricultural Engineering of Munich University of Technology has been involved in heat production from biomass since 1974, and in environmental aspects related to the development of energy crops since 1978. This team also works in the field of bio-fuels for vehicles, its main involvement being in fundamental and applied research. The centre also maintains a regular extension service concerning domestic wood combustion. A permanent exhibition for wood combustion technology has been established.
