Preview Plenary Sessions by

Dr. David Baxter

Former European Commission JRC, EUBCE Executive Committee Member

As detailed in the programme, EUBCE 2024 will feature plenary, offering introductions and overviews of current "hot" topics in the world of biomass.

This year’s thematic choices are: These themes will be previewed in the upcoming weeks to pique your interest in attending the plenaries. They are deliberately chosen to appeal to a broad spectrum of participants, ensuring that you don’t need to be an expert to understand the content. This is a unique opportunity to expand your knowledge beyond your specific area of expertise.

Don't miss these insightful sessions designed to expand your understanding and engage you in the latest advancements in biomass.

Preview Monday & Tuesday

Building Industrial Capacity for Advanced Biofuels
Plenary Session AP1 - Monday 13.45-14.45

This special plenary session will cover the transition to circular biomass value chains for hard to abate transport sectors and regional development and to assess investor perspectives in the drive to increase industrial production capacity.

The first presentation will cover the European Commission’s study "Development of Outlook for the Necessary Means to Build Industrial Capacity for Drop in Advanced Biofuels" which aims to investigate and analyze factors contributing to the development of advanced and sustainable biofuels production within the relevant European policy and regulatory framework, to facilitate the timely market entry of advanced biofuels for achieving the 2030 and 2050 targets. The second presentation looks at an investor’s view on investing in production facilities and is given from an industrial perspective from a bioindustry private equity operator. The main focus will be on industrial size factory investments in the broad field that the bioindustry spans.


Sustainability, Impacts and Policies
Plenary Session BP.1 - Tuesday 10:15-11:30

There will be three oral presentations in this plenary session which focuses on sustainability and includes updating GHG emissions in the Renewables Directive II, environmental impact assessment in the move towards a green economy and sustainability with the inclusion of bioenergy carbon capture and storage (BECCS).

The first presentation will present the main changes introduced regarding the input values, the new assumptions as well as the new pathways for the update of the greenhouse gas emissions from biofuels and bioenergy in Annexes V and VI of the Renewable Energy Directive II. The second presentation will summarise achievements from the MIDAS project, “Marginal lands and industrial crops for the European bioeconomy: combining bio-based products, climate resilience and biodiversity through innovative agricultural value chains”. The final presentation in this session focusses on the strategically important role played by biomass and biogenic CO2 in carbon dioxide removal (CDR).


Large-Scale Gasification and Biomethane Production
Plenary Session BP.2 - Tuesday 13:45-14:45

Gasification is a key process for the conversion of a range of feedstocks to useful intermediate products that can subsequently be used to build a variety of products.

The first presentation will provide an overview of current activities in the field on biomass and waste gasification, with the aim of producing either biomethane or biofuels. The second presentation will feature the outcomes of a report by “Guidehouse” which assesses the biomethane potential in 2040 for Europe (EU27 + Norway, Switzerland and UK). This report also builds on and updates the 2030 and 2050 biomethane production estimates originally provided in the 2022 “Gas for Climate” study. This will enable the establishment of a timeline for biomethane production potentials to 2030, 2040, and 2050. The report was due to be finalised and released mid-April 2024.
