Finding a sustainable way of creating growth and jobs represents a priority for Europe alongside with climate change concerns. If challenges are well known, let’s discuss solutions!
Contrary to an often conveyed traditional image, bioenergy is a highly innovative sector, which already provides local green jobs to around 500,000 people along Europe. Have you ever heard about technologies like wood torrefaction, pyrolysis fuel oils or automated biomass stoves/boilers?  These innovations could allow the creation of sustainable local jobs for Europe in the coming years and make “Europe n°1 in renewable energy”, one of Jean-Claude Junker’s key priorities.In the framework of its Biomass Counts Campaign, AEBIOM is delighted to invite you on October 20th at the “Résidence Palace – Centre de Presse International” to its 4th Event “Bioenergy – Fueling Europe with jobs and innovations” which will be Co-hosted by MEPs:
  • Kumpula-Natri, Miapetra – MEP, Chair of Bioeconomy Working Group, Member of ITRE Committee, S&D Group
  • Benedek Jávor – MEP, Vice-Chair of the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety, Greens/EFA Group

This event will provide participants with a general overview of key socio-economic indicators related to the development of Bioenergy at EU/national/local level as well as concrete presentations of advanced technologies supporting a sustainable development of Bioenergy in Europe.

Biomass Counts event will be followed by a cocktail reception (18:30 – 20:00) during which AEBIOM will release the key findings of its 2015 Statistical Report, providing audience with the latest development of the Bioenergy sector.
