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.

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:
