Advanced Biofuels Conference – Final programme launched with high-level experts discussing the future for biofuels

We now launched the final program for the conference, which will be held via digital link. Hear from the experts, online, on 16 September starting at 13.00 CEST (GMT +0200).

Earlier this year, Swedish forest owners’ association Södra completed an industrial biomethanol plant at its Mönsterås pulp mill in southeast Sweden. Using proprietary technology from Andritz, the process extracts commercial-grade biomethanol from black liquor condensate, a by-product of the sulphate pulp process. PHOTO: Södra

Advanced biofuels are more than ever key to reducing emissions in many national transport sectors. The EU has decided on levels for advanced biofuels but has limited the use of crop-based biofuels up to 2030. All this changes the conditions for future investments. The conference gives you insights on how the goals can be achieved. There is a wide range of new technologies and projects. But will these be realized and will we be able to reverse global warming and at the same time develop the transport sector?

The event aims to provide insights on renewable transportation fuels, novel technologies and what is going on in biofuels policy, new production and feedstock sources. The online conference will discuss all transport sectors, including biofuels for road, rail, sea and air.

This is what you can expect, with issues addressed: 

  • The transportation fuel market is changing rapidly in Sweden and Europe. Nordic companies such as Preem, St1, SCA, SunPine, E.ON, UPM, Neste, RenFuel, PyroCell, Biozin and Södra are investing in new production. Experts and leading companies will present updates.
  • Reduction obligation quota policies provide a gradual reduction of fossil fuels by biofuel blending. But what is the market effect on clean, high-blend biofuels or drop-in renewable fuels? How shall nations reach fossil-free transport?
  • What does the EU cap on crop-based biofuels and palm oil phase-out mean in reality? What happens in the US, Canada and in Asia?
  • Bio-based fuels for aviation and shipping, how will this change the industry, what are the implications for freight costs and travel? How much will be available and how will or should these be introduced to society as a whole?
  • 10 renowned international speakers from 6 countries will present their view, latest updates and experiences on state-of-the-art technologies, current projects and large investments in bioeconomy and biorefineries.
  • Panel discussions on the new climate policy and proposals for advanced biofuels.
