Conference Centre Wallenberg,
Welcome to the Advanced Biofuels Conference – For aviation, maritime and land transport!
Biofuels are an ever important piece in the transition to a fossil fuel-free world. Advanced biofuels, being sustainable and regardless of resources or technology, grown in forests or on agricultural land are vital in keeping global warming below 2°C as agreed. The transport sectors in aviation, maritime and on land benefit from biofuels bringing growth to a bioeconomy, adding security to supply, energy and cost.
While the market is ready, fossil fuel prices are at low levels and there are different political ambitions on both national and European levels. What long-term policy and instruments will the European Union adopt to reduce CO2 emissions? How can the industry create business opportunities for this emerging market, taking advantage of technological innovations?
Biofuels have the potential to unlock the downward trend in increasing carbon emissions from the transport sector, replacing fossil carbon with renewable carbon. The technology is there, the investments are promising, the time is right. Come and listen to the leading experts in biofuels, make your voice heard and together we will create the right conditions for biofuels, for today and tomorrow!
The Advanced Biofuels Conference is intended for those who are interested in 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, organisations, governments and authorities.
It is all about greenhouse gas reduction performance, therefore advanced biofuels are defined as sustainable biofuels, regardless of raw material or processing technology. Clean and efficient conversion of biomass from agriculture, forest and water in biorefineries demonstrates opportunities for large-scale production of biofuels with commercial break-through in many sectors. Now is the time to pave the way for direct measures, fulfilling ambitious goals for biofuels to an exit for fossil fuels.
JOIN SVEBIO FOR GÖTEBORGSVARVET!
After the conference, 20 May, Svebio will lead a campaign during the ”Göteborgsvarvet” half-marathon race in Gothenburg and we hope that you will join us. With more than 64 000 runners and 200 000 dedicated spectators this is the world’s largest half-marathon race. Our message will be: I RUN ON BIOFUELS – LET YOUR CAR DO TOO!
