Coordinating energy research for a low carbon Europe
The 28th European Biomass Conference and Exhibition (EUBCE) will be held in Marseille, France, from 27 to 30 April 2020.
EUBCE 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, providing a forum for industrial implementation of technologies. 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 to 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 has already been comprising some of the non-energy sectors such as biochemicals, 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.
In 2020, the conference will include key sessions that will dig deep into the structure, components and role of the emerging bioeconomy in Europe and across the world. There will be plenty of opportunities to present, listen to and discuss the details of technology developments, options for mitigation of adverse environmental and climate impacts. Research results from all stages of development will continue to form the core of the conference.
EERA’s Joint Programme on Bioenergy will participate in the conference.
