Welcome to Stockholm and the Advanced Biofuels Conference – Europe is ready for advanced biofuels!
The Swedish Bioenergy Association (SVEBIO) heartily welcomes participants across the globe to the beautiful city of Stockholm to attend our 5th Advanced Biofuels Conference on 17-19 September, 2019. Pre-conference study visits will be followed by two full conference days, a conference dinner cruise, a workshop, and cover all land, aviation and maritime transport sectors.
Advanced biofuels for Europe are key for reducing emissions in the national transport sectors. We have seen commercial breakthroughs in technologies, new policy measures adopted and changing business models, all which of are no longer on the horizon. This year, we invite you to participate in latest European policy, energy system transition to renewable fuels, partnerships, world class R&D and new technologies – with all the leading companies presented. More and more vehicles are certified with HVO100, to complement today’s selection of bio-CNG, E85, ED95, B100 as well as conventional fossil fuels blended with biofuels.
The conference will bring you an update on the value of advanced biofuels and business opportunities in the new bioeconomy. You will get leading international experts, unique networking, interesting study visits and a workshop on biofuels policy and biobased jet fuels.
The Advanced Biofuels Conference is intended for people creating a sustainable transport sector. Speakers and delegates will be policy makers and politicians, leading scientists, researchers, engineers, as well as executives and representatives from companies and organizations.

What to expect
The conference offers three days with +150 decision-making attendees from the entire value chain: feedstock to consumer brands via policy, technology, finance and innovation. It’s a one-stop-shop to meet new partners from across the entire advanced biofuels sector, at one time in one place. Six sessions will comprise the conference with the following topics:
1. Political strategies and visions
– how to reduce transport emissions and dependency on fossil fuels
In hindsight, different policies (eg mandates, quotas, carbon tax) have had different and sometimes conflicting effects – what works, what does not and why?
2. Advanced biofuels for Europe
– partnerships and challenges for business opportunities
The last 18 months have seen a surge of investment announcements into advanced biofuels for road, rail, marine and aviation. The Nordic forest industry has been a major driver but also European agriculture as well as urban green waste and wastewater treatment plants.
3. Policy and industry perspectives – possibilities and commercialisation
What is behind this surge of investments – have investors found new confidence in advanced biofuel policies and policymakers or are there other factors such as technology ”gamechangers” also in play?
4. Future for road transport – where are we heading?
Some argue that G-mobility (gas) is the low- carbon bridge to fossil free E-mobility (electric) others are pushing for E-mobility directly by proposing bans on diesel and gasoline internal combustion engines (ICE). However, ICE’s will be around for decades to come not just in road vehicles but also in working machinery and stationary generators.
5. Clean biofuels – the bridge to fossil free transport
Many of ICE’s in cars, trucks and working machinery can be made to run on clean bio-fuels such as biodiesel, HVO, E85, ED95 or biomethane that are available today.
6. Biofuels in aviation and marine transport – we are flying and sailing green
The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), the IATA and the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) have targets to reduce CO2 emissions from aviation and shipping by at least 50 percent by 2050 compared to 2005 and 2008 respectively. The challenge for the former is that with the exception of niche applications, high energy dense liquid fuels are the only option for the for-seeable future. Shipping has a range of options.
