​Media invitation: Advanced biofuels – Nordic region in the forefront

The Nordic region is in the forefront both for production and demand of advanced biofuels from cellulose, residues and waste. One example: both Norway, Sweden and Finland have targets for 30% biobased jetfuel in 2030. Another example: there are more than 60 projects for production of biofuels, up and running, under construction, or in planning. Both pilots, demonstration plants, and commercial plants. Most of them are based on feedstock from forestry.


At ABC, Advanced Biofuels Conference, in Stockholm 17 – 19 September, you can learn more and meet the leading actors in the field. The conference is truly global, with participants from around the world, so far registered: 120 companies from 22 countries.

Some examples from the programme:

  • Panu Routasalo, Vice President, UPM, Finland: From Paris to Practice – How to scale up the advanced biofuels industry. The forest industry company UPM is a leading developer of forest based advanced biofuels.
