All aboard for ABC 2022
The Swedish Bioenergy Association (Svebio) is organizing the 8th Advanced Biofuels Conference (ABC 2022) which provides you with the latest on renewable transportation fuels, novel technologies and policy developments. Meet the leading players and experts from around the world, on-site or online, in Stockholm at ABC 2022, September 13-15.
Biofuels – bioliquids, and green gases – are essential in the global effort to replace fossil fuels and reach the Paris Agreement goals of limiting global warming to well below 2 o C compared to pre-industrial levels. With six sessions over two days, the conference will showcase the latest developments and insights in European and international policy, the transition from fossil to renewable fuels and new technologies, investments and partnerships.
Speaking of the latter as an example is Chevron Renewable Energy Group, part of Chevron Corporation, one of the world’s largest integrated energy companies,that in June 2002, closed on the acquisition of Renewable Energy Group (REG), a global biodiesel and renewable diesel producer with operations in both North America and Europe. The acquisition combines REG’s growing renewable fuels production and leading feedstock capabilities with Chevron’s large manufacturing, distribution, and commercial marketing position. Furthermore, it augments Chevron’s goal to grow renewable fuels production capacity to 100 000 barrels per day by 2030 and bring additional feedstock supplies and pre-treatment facilities. Job Barnhoorn, Senior Coordinator, Manager Corporate Affairs Europe at Chevron Renewable Energy Group will speak on the use of higher blends in the road sector.
For the gasoline (petrol) powered segment of road transportation, alcohol- derived fuels play a varied but significant role in different regions. From technical low blend additives such methanol (MTBE) and ethanol (ETBE) octane boosters replacing lead to E10, E15, and E85 blends. According to the European Renewable Ethanol Association (ePURE), European ethanol production was 8.78 billion litres in 2021. The United States is world’s largest ethanol producer producing 15 billion (US) gallons (≈ 56.78 billion litres) from where the EU 27 imported 273 million litres in 2021. Isabelle Ausdal, Policy expert, US Grains Council (USGC), will provide an analysis of the US ethanol industry in time of electricity and gas crisis.
This is what you can expect
- Around 130 delegates from 20 countries that will converge and converse on the current status of renewable transportation fuels for all modes of transport in terms of policy, sustainability, conversion technologies and infrastructure;
- Around 30 internationally renowned speakers that will share the latest updates and real-world experiences on state-of-the art technologies, current projects and future investments;
- Opportunity on September 13 to visit Pyrocell, the world’s first integrated bio-pyrolysis plant, as well as renewable fuel developer and distributor Colabit Sweden AB, both of which are located in Gävle region.
