The Swedish Energy Agency is organising this seminar as a part of Sweden's involvement in the International Energy Agency, Industrial Energy-Related Technologies and Systems (IEA, IETS).
Industrial biorefineries will be set a foot. There are uncertainties and risks involved in this type of capital-intensive investment. The IEA and partners have developed methods and tools for minimising risks and improving the base for strategic decision-making in industry. Methods and tools developed in Sweden, as well as some major international ones will be presented and discussed at the seminar.
Such uncertainties and risks influence both the economy and consequences of implementing different types of biorefinery concepts. Future conditions for value chains, integration, policy instruments and energy prices as well as regional availability of biomass types, process industries, green power, will have a considerable influence on the choice of feedstock, processes and products. Available decision support systems and ex-ante methods or tools deal with aspects of importance for decision-making regarding such concepts.
Target groups for this seminar are representatives from industry, universities, institutes and regional and government authorities.
Chair of IEA, IETS
