The debate will be split into three main issues, mostly focusing on European examples:

  • Carbon neutrality
    How can biomass best contribute to climate change mitigation? State of play of the carbon neutrality debate.
  • Bioenergy and forests
    How can bioenergy developments go hand in hand with forests carbon stock increase and sustainable forest management practices?
  • Societal challenges
    Can bioenergy play a role in tackling other societal challenges?


After a short introduction speech by AEBIOM Secretary General Jean-Marc Jossart, the floor will be given to four key experts in order for them to answer these questions:
