    Conference: Building a Sustainable European Biofuel Industry

    When: 4 - 6 November 2019https images 071019

  • Where: Gothia Towers, Gothenburg, Sweden

  • Sustainable bioenergy development relies on a combination of sustainable resource procurement, production and use of low carbon fuels and chemicals, as well as a joined-up approach to research and policy that looks at the whole energy system.

    This conference will focus on the key objective of sustainable biofuel implementation prospects in Norway, Sweden and the UK. It will bring together researchers, industry specialists and policy-makers to review the status of bioenergy deployment, analyze the future of sustainable biofuel production and use in Europe, and connect sectorial expertise with a view to supporting sustainable biofuel production and greenhouse gas mitigation.

    Industry, policy and research co-align along common interests and objectives. The conference wishes to facilitate networking and bridge gaps between different research and business areas, parts of the biofuel production value chain, and also, of course, country borders.

When: Thursday 17 October 2019, 13.00-16.45

Where: Rosenlundsgatan 9, Stockholm (the Swedish Energy Agency Stockholm Office)

Language: English

This seminar is arranged by the Swedish Energy Agency as a part of the Swedish involvement in the International Energy Agency, Industrial Energy-Related Technologies and Systems (IEA, IETS). An international collaboration in the area of separation technologies is ongoing within IETS, with Lund University as leader. Separation technologies consume more energy in most process industries than any other type of technology. Important examples are membrane technology, evaporation, drying, distillation, adsorption/desorption and filtration.

Developments towards more efficient such processes are one of the keys towards a more sustainable process industry. This is true both for traditional industry types and e. g. biorefineries, in which different dewatering technologies are of high importance. There is an ongoing interesting development in several of these technologies, both in Sweden and internationally. Some important developments will be presented and discussed at the seminar.

Target groups for the seminar are representatives from industry, universities, institutes and regional and governmental authorities. The aims of the seminar are to increase the knowledge in Sweden in this area, to create a network in Sweden and discuss the Swedish contribution in the international collaboration as well as to discuss need for further work. If you want to participate, please register by e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Friday 4 October 2019. There seminar is free of charge. A full programme will be distributed shortly. Welcome! Thore Berntsson Chair of IEA, IETS.

Advanced Biofuels Conference 2019

ABC2019 no dates

The Swedish Bioenergy Association (SVEBIO) invites participants to attend the 5th Advanced Biofuels Conference

17-19 September 2019

Stockholm, Sweden

Advanced biofuels are key for reducing emissions in European transport, to believe Svebio, organiser of the Advanced Biofuel Conference 2019, 17-19 September in Stockholm, Sweden.

Svebio mentions the advent of commercial breakthroughs and new technologies, the putting in place of new policy measures and the presence of new or changing business models.

This year, therefore, the conference will feature the developments in European Union policy, a purported transition in the energy system towards renewable fuels, new technologies and partnerships. Biofuels such as HVO100, bio-CNG, E85, ED95, B100 will be discussed. These blend with fossil fuels.

The target audience of the Advanced Biofuels Conference are people involved in the creation of a sustainable transport sector. Speakers or delegates will be policy makers and politicians, leading scientists, researchers, engineers, as well as executives and representatives from companies and other organisations. The conference will entail:

  • Two conference days, six sessions and more than 30 high-level speakers covering automotive, aviation and maritime transport markets for blended or pure biofuels.
  • A pre-conference programme that includes study visits to RISE Research Institutes of Sweden Science Park, as well as Scania Production Facility and Henriksdal, one of Scandinavia’s largest biogas plants.
  • A mini exposition that has stands for networking, and there will be an exclusive conference evening dinner cruise on the waterways of Stockholm.
  • A workshop organised by ETIP Bioenergy and RISE on financing and investing in biofuels with innovative, advanced technologies, in view of upgrading biorefineries for large-scale production.

The final programme and registration is available under this link.
