Obituary: Prof. Dr. Bernhard Raninger and Ms. Dong Shanshan
It is with a deep sense of sadness and shock that we must pass on the following sad information: On the 1st of November 2013, our dear colleagues Prof. Dr. Bernhard Raninger and Ms. Dong Shanshan died in a tragic car accident in Fushun (close to Shenyang) while on a business trip.
With Prof. Dr. Bernhard Raninger we lose a long-standing, beloved colleague and internationally recognised expert who has spent the last 15 years in China working tirelessly, and full of enthusiasm, in order to improve the utilization of biomass for energy production, and for the sustainable development of the world.
With Ms. Dong Shanshan we lose a cheerful, ambitious and most promising young colleague who had only started her career at the GIZ in China a few weeks earlier after completing her Masters degree in Environmental Science in Germany.
Our deepest sympathy and sincere condolences go to the relatives and friends of our two colleagues.
