The world is not the same as it was a year ago. A series of unexpected calamities threaten to significantly derail goals to decarbonise the global economy and meet Paris 2050 commitments. However, this is not the time to sit still, warns Kyriakos Maniatis, Coordinator of the EUBCE Industry Track.

“If we sit still and wait, the unwanted effects on the economy, energy, climate and society will only increase,” he says. “I see this as an opportunity to accelerate our efforts to market renewables, especially biomass and its numerous applications in the economy.”

Facilitating the transition

IMF figures show that rising inflation is mainly caused by energy prices, especially for transport and food. These are pre-eminent sectors in which the biomass economy can play a stabilising role, for example by facilitating the energy transition from fossil fuels to a green economy while ensuring adequate food supply and employment.

The solutions offered by the biomass industry will be given ample attention during the Industry Track of EUBCE 2023, the 31st Biomass Conference & Expo to be held in June 2023 in Bologna, Italy. The central focus there will be on technological innovations for bringing state-of-the-art technologies to market and addressing the growing scarcity of financing.

EUBCE is organised by ETA-Florence Renewable Energies. The technical programme is coordinated by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC). The Industry Track is coordinated by the Circular Bio-based Europe Joint Undertaking (CBE JU).
