MI’s Chief Representative Europe, Eelco Dekker, will speak at the upcoming International Advanced Biofuels Conference to be held September 16-17 in Stockholm, Sweden.
The transport sectors in aviation, maritime and on land face big changes in the near future. Apart from today’s economic situation there are national energy challenges like security of supply and carbon emissions. Perhaps the largest challenge of all is the transition to a low carbon economy using biofuels while fossil fuel prices fluctuate heavily.
In December 2015, the COP21/CMP11 will be a crucial conference, as it needs to achieve a new international agreement on the climate, applicable to all countries, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2°C.
What long-term incentives and instruments will the European Union and USA adopt to reduce CO2 emissions? How can the industry create business opportunities for this emerging market, taking advantage of technological innovations? Biofuels have the potential to unlock the downward trend in increasing carbon emissions from the transport sector. The technology is there, the investments are promising, the time is right – and the future is bright.
With delegates expected from leading executives and experts from companies and organisations, this conference will cover the policy/market update and state of the art in biofuels for the transport sector in aviation, maritime and on land.
This first edition will bring together top research and industry like Göteborg Energi, Abengoa, Avinor, Boeing, Bioenergy 2020+, Neste, UPM, SCA, Lufthansa, Westinghouse, Stena Line, Preem, SCA, SkyNRG, Swedavia, Värmlandsmetanol, Wärtsilä and UNICA with key politicians and policy makers to discuss the present development and the future for biofuels with special focus on advanced biofuels.
