Preview of EUBCE Industry Track by

Kyriakos Maniatis

Former European Commission, DG ENERGY, EUBCE Industry Coordinator

The Industry Track of EUBCE 2024 has several exciting attributes compared to past EUBCE events.

To get a better response from the industry 6 sessions have been planned directly based on abstract submission covering the topics:

Session Title Session designation

Sustainable Biomass production and carbon management

IBO.4 - 7.1

Biomethane production and market deployment

IBO.5 - 7.2

Advanced biofuels industrial applications

IBO.3 - 7.3

Advanced Biofuels - Aviation: gearing up for market deployment

ICO.5 - 7.4

Innovative production of bioproducts and biochemicals for industrial applications:

ICO3 - 7.6

ICO.4 - 7.6

With the support of Industry Track Advisors, we have organise six sessions on interesting topics that are considered critical for the deployment of biomass industrial applications.


Breaking News

China and India expressed the interest to organise meetings with European representatives, technology developers, industry representatives and research experts on sustainable aviation fuels and biomethane. However, this is not possible during the EUBCE and it was therefore decided to organise two Tripartite meetings on Sunday 23 June 2024; the Biomethane Tripartite taking part in the morning and the SAF Tripartite taking place in the afternoon.

Both meetings are by invitation only, but summaries of the key points will be presented at the closing session of EUBCE on 27 June.
