Structure and programme are carefully prepared by the Industry Track Coordinator in close collaboration with the Circular Bio-based Europe Joint Undertaking (CBE JU) and the Bio-based Industries Consortium. However, the recent and brutal war taking place in Ukraine has completely changed all predictions for energy policy, planning and strategies for decarbonising the European economy. These facts will have an acute effect on the use of biomass. Some can be severe while other can provide new prospects resulting in new visions and expectations. Every effort will be undertaken in trying to anticipate the effect of the turbulent policy landscape in the market deployment of biomass applications and products.
In addition to the traditional sessions on Progress in conversion technologies, biomass crops and advanced biofuels the Industry Tracks will highlight the following:
- dedicated sessions on sustainable aviation fuel use in China and India.
- a session/panel on Breakthrough innovation based on EIC Accelerator Horizon Europe Programme projects;
- a panel discussion on Carbon Markets;
- a panel discussion on the Availability of Sustainable biomass in the EU towards 2050;
- a panel discussion on Opportunities and challenges for the use of biofuels in road transport.
Finally, at the end of the EUBCE programme there will be a dedicated panel discussion trying to recapture the key messages from the 30th EUBCE aiming to position the role of biomass into the changing policy environment.
The complete Industry Track programme is now available on the EUBCE website.
