Bumpy Road Ahead: Preparing for the Updated Renewable Energy Directive
Plenary Session CP.2 Wednesday 7 June 13:45 - 14:45

Although the revision to the Renewable Energy Directive was finalized just in 2018, the European Commission presented a proposal for an additional revision less than three years later. The Renewable Energy Directive, also known as RED, is the primary legislation regulating renewable energy in the EU and determines the sustainability criteria for biomass that is used for bioenergy. As such, RED is perhaps the single most important piece of legislation for the bioenergy sector.

This plenary session is designed to explains the impact of the recent EU legislation on the bioenergy sector, the state of play on the political level, and the views of industry while exploring how the legislation will be implemented and what impacts this is likely to have in the future. The session will be organized into two parts, a short presentation on the latest RED updates and a panel discussion.

The plenary session will open with a short presentation on what RED is, what it covers, how it works, and what will change from the version passed in 2018 to the one that is set to be adopted this year. The presentation will recap all of the latest developments coming out of Brussels and provide useful analysis.

After the presentation, the session will shift to a panel discussion with a representative from a voluntary scheme for RED certification and two industry experts to get an inside look at the application of RED. The session will also dig into the following questions:
  • What are the biggest challenges facing industry?
  • What have been the challenges for scheme operators?
  • How is the regulatory environment impacting stakeholders?
  • What are the main concerns regarding what will come next once this new version of RED enters into force?
All these questions and more will be discussed by our distinguished panel, join this session to learn more.

High Efficiency and Low Emissions CHP Technologies from Biogenic Residues
Tuesday 6 June 2023 | 16:15-18:30 CEST

This event will showcase the characteristics of the BLAZE system, developed by a 4 year long H2020 project: an efficient and zero emission CHP system utilising biomass residues as feedstock and combiningh a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell and a Gasifier. Joined by other similar projects, we will show why CHP solutions can play a pivotal role for the green transition.

Delivering on REPowerEU: Bringing Research and Industry Closer to Accelerate Innovation and Uptake of Biomethane
Wednesday 7 June 2023 | 09:00-13:00 CEST

The SUPEERA project brings together a group of eminent European scientists and leading industry to discuss research-industry cooperation practices and opportunities to accelerate innovation in the biomethane/biogas sector and to explore their replicability potential across Europe. In this endeavor SUPEERA joins forces with the GreenMeUp project that aims to enhance the biomethane market by designing market uptake measures for biomethane deployment in countries with slower market development rates.

Sustainability Certification of Bio-Based Products
Wednesday 7 June 2023 | 15:00-18:20 CEST

The Horizon Europe sister projects HARMONITOR, SUSTCERT4BIOBASED and STAR4BBS assess certification schemes and labels (CSLs) and their use to ascertain the sustainability of bio-based products in the European Union. Presentations will feature preliminary results from all three projects, followed by a roundtable discussing the role of CSLs as a co-regulation instrument.

Upscaling the Production of Low ILUC Risk Biomass Feedstock for the Bioeconomy
Thursday 08 June 2023 | 11:45-13:45 CEST

The BIKE project is organizing an Parallel event at EUBCE, where partners will present the final results of the project and interesting insights from the Case studies selected in BIKE. Low-ILUC risk crops, cultivated in abandoned or degraded lands, or grown in the context of additionality measures, can provide large quantities of biomass feedstock for the production of advanced biofuels.

EUBCE Technical Tour

Coordinated by Maurizio Cocchi, ETA-Florence Renewable Energies in collaboration with CIB Italian Biogas Consortium and Department of Agricultural and Food Sciences of the University of Bologna

The city of Bologna is conveniently located in the Po Valley, one of the most productive agro-industrial areas in Italy and in Europe.

We know you have been waiting a long time for the EUBCE technical tour, in the last few months we have worked intensively to design a visit to make you experience both the essence of Italian tradition and innovation, and in this technical tour you will have the opportunity to discover two great examples of this. We are happy to share with you more details below. Thank you for your patience!

In the first part of the tour you will visit AGRIBIOENERGIA Cooperative Farm, an innovative cooperative farm that combines traditional crops with medicinal plant production and with the efficient use of heat and power generated from its own biogas plant. In the second part you will also visit the experimental farm of the University of Bologna, where you will be able to see many examples of innovative agronomic solutions, crops species and farming systems, including biomass and food crops integrated into a traditional model farm of this area.

Spaces are limited and will be allocated to EUBCE delegates on a first come – first served basis.
