From 25-27 March 2020, Biofuels Digest is organizing the Advcanced Bioeconomy Leadership Conference (ABLC) 2020 in Washington DC.

At ABLC, you’ll meet the leaders of the global advanced bioeconomy, in one place, at one time, for real dialogue on the opportunities and challenges of this industrial movement towards sustainability and renewables. Target groups are the owners & operators, project developers, investors, policymakers, end-use customers and channel & development partners for the newest technologies of the advanced bioeconomy: health, nutrition, AgTech, genetics, big data, robotics, fuels, chemicals and materials.

ABLC is a connected series of 7 conferences and 18 events in total on the most important issues in the current Bioeconomy.

These conferences-within-a-conference are:

  1. The Advanced Biofuels Summit – including new markets and technologies for renewable diesel, sustainable aviation fuels and advanced alcohols.
  2. The Renewable Chemicals & Biomaterials Summit – including new markets and technologies for advanced packaging, novel high-performance fibers and chemicals.
  3. The Advanced Agriculture Summit – yield improvement, new crops, international deployment of technology, new sources of income — and the role of robotics, genetics, big data, remote sensing, mobility — and new tools for crop protection through early detection & spot treatment against pests, parasites, competitors and disease. The Summit will examine sustainable crop protection, novel feedstocks, supply chain development, the return of platforms such as hemp and hemp-based CBD, the rise of protein production for animal and human nutrition, and opportunities for vegan technologies.
  4. The Advanced Nutrition Summit – advanced products and technologies for human and animal nutrition — more food, better food, and more customer choice.
  5. The Sustainable Aviation Summit – with the onset of global low carbon CORSIA standards for aviation, the prospects for technology development, project deployment and offtake in heavy-duty air transport.
  6. The Biogas & RNG Summit – agricultural, food, municipal, forest and animal wastes are being captured for conversion into renewable natural gas for stationary and transport applications — its the fastest growing ABLC sector, who are the players, the markets, what are the feedstocks, the economics and technologies?
  7. The Hydrogen Summit — showcasing sustainable production technologies, distribution & separation, materials handling, and end-use applications for sustainable hydrogen.

In addition, there will be 11 special events, forums and workshops:

  • The Investor & Finance Workshop on capital trends
