* IMPORTANT NOTICE: NEW DATE * The European Biomass Conferences and Exhibition has grown from a small research community biomass conference more than 30 years ago to a well-established international conference, tackling challenges ranging from biomass growth and biomass conversion to bioenergy, biofuels and bioproducts, sustainability and policies, and to provide a forum for industrial implementation of technologies enabling the transition away from fossil fuels economies. For all of these topics on integration of processes, technologies and value chains it has always been necessary to ensure the most efficient use of the limited biomass resource and enable economic viability. The ultimate step of integration is a fully functioning bioeconomy.
A bioeconomy existed in pre-industrial, pre-fossil fuel times, as well-established traditional bio-based activities, ranging from agriculture, food, feed, fibre and forest-based industries. A modern bioeconomy is now emerging, encompassing biomaterials and biochemicals production, along with traditional bio-based products. EUBCE tackles already some of the non-energy sectors such as biochemical and biomaterials and biorefineries. Bioeconomy encompasses the wide ranging economic sectors dealing with the growth, conversion, application and marketing of bioproducts and biochemicals from biogenic sources.
The 28th EUBCE will expand its portfolio from energy related biomass production and conversion of bio-based feedstock to other sectors of the economy and will now integrate the bioeconomy into its conference programme.
