WBA mourns the loss of Prof. Sribas C Bhattacharya


It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our friend and colleague Prof. Sribas Bhattacharya on January 29 2016. As a Board Member and Vice President, he assisted WBA in many of our activities and was instrumental in the success of the organisation. Throughout his career he dedicated himself to global energy issues. He was a pioneer in the field of energy and his loss will be felt immensely.

On behalf of everyone at WBA, our deepest sympathy goes out to his family and friends. He will be forever remembered as a true professional, an exceptional colleague and a friend. 

Kind regards
Heinz Kopetz
President, World Bioenergy Association 

In his memory, WBA has planted trees in East Africa (Link).
