Having supported and worked with many bioeconomy projects, Greenovate! Europe has organised a conference to overcome the barriers for sustainable bio-based products and biofuels.
The event will be taking place in Brussels on the 12th April 2018 and will be focused on the sustainable use and widespread uptake of biomass. The one-day event will include talks from some leading industry experts on topics including: Market uptake of agricultural biomass, and European regulatory framework for the future of the bio-economy and the biofuels.
There will also be a poster session hosting several other EU-funded projects in the same field before the day will close with a fruitful panel discussion which will address market barriers.
Greenovate! Europe invite you all to attend, share your views and discuss how to help the future bio-based solutions.

European Biomass Conference and Exhibition 2018
The 26th European Biomass Conference and Exhibition (EUBCE) will be taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark on 14th – 17th May 2018.
The EUBCE is the largest gathering of biomass experts and platform for the collection, exchange and dissemination of scientific and industrial know-how in the field of biomass.
The event combines one of the largest biomass science and technology conferences with a high-quality industry exhibition and attracts professionals from around the globe.
The conference programme will address topics from biomass to bioliquids and biofuels for heat and electricity, transport and bio-based products. It will cover all aspects of each value chain, from supply and logistics to conversion technologies, from industrial application of research results to impacts on the environment.
The EUBCE focuses on upstream research and technologies and covers the latest findings in research. The future of biomass will be shaped by a unique alliance between research and industry.
In addition to the conference programme, EUBCE’s parallel events offer deep insights into specific topics focusing on the most recent technology, market and business trends and address global decision makers from industry and research to finance and politics. The parallel events will be open to all registered EUBCE participants.

8th Nordic Wood Biorefinery Conference 2018
On the 23rd-25th October 2018 the 8th Nordic Wood Biorefinery Conference will take place at Scandic Marina Congress Centre in Helsinki, Finland.
The event is organised by VTT of Finland and RISE of Sweden and previous events have attracted more than 200 participants from over 30 countries.
The conference will cover new research results and industrial experience related to biorefining based on wood and/or on pulp mills:
- Biorefinery systems and processes.
- Biorefinery products: chemicals, materials and fuels.
- Apart from technical/scientific process/product subjects, economy and sustainability issues will also be addressed
As well as keynote speeches from renowned experts in the field - including: Bernard de Galembert, innovation and bioeconomy director CEPI; Berry Wiersum, chief executive officer Sappi Europe; James Clark, professor and director of Green Chemistry Centre University of York – paper contributions are expected to address scientific discovery, product and process technology developments and innovations in the value chains for Nordic wood biorefineries.
