Two Networks sponsored by the EC FAIR Programme have been operating since the beginning of 1995 on biomass gasification and biomass pyrolysis to bring together all the European experts in those areas. This publication contains the proceedings of the conference which was the final meeting of the Gasification Network and which provided an end of term meeting for the Pyrolysis Network - PyNE. It was held in Stuttgart from 9 to 11 April 1997. The joint meeting provided a unique opportunity for everyone in Europe to hear of the latest developments and successes in both areas. In addition the meeting formed the Third EC-Canada joint thermochemical contractors meeting. Both technologies have made significant progress over the last three years and although neither is truly economic in the absence of fiscal incentives, the scientific and technical knowledge base has grown considerably and is thereby aiding the improvement of the technology and reducing costs.
