The 20th European Biomass conference & Exhibition, otherwise known as EU BC&E 2012, will take place at Milano, Italy on June 18-22 2012. The motto of the event is: ‘’Setting the course for a bio-based economy’’. The deadline for the submission of the papers for the conference is on January 30th 2012.
As a raw material, Biomass, can be used as an energy source producing a sustainable energy supply. Biomass technology has become a modern form of energy supply for our society both for today and tomorrow. It is also a key element of sustainability in the modern green society and an economic factor of considerable significance.
The Biomass community is continually evolving finding new solutions, implementing new ideas and committed to bring together Biomass energy with other renewable green energies such as solar and wind.
The conference will have some vertically-oriented elements, with a total of 800 parallel sessions, which will be dedicated to the following topics:
- Bioenergy in Smart Grids
- Biowaste to Energy
- Biogas goes Europe and
- Biogas Upgrading and Grid Injection
The 800 parallel sessions will be distributed to the five conference subjects which are:
- Biomass resources
- R&D on Biomass conversion technologies for heating, electricity and chemicals
- R&D on Process for solid, liquid and gaseous fuels from Biomass
- Industrial Demonstration and Business concepts
- Biomass policies, markets and sustainability
The exhibition that will run in parallel to the conference will be a great opportunity for companies to present their products, declare their presence in this renewable green energy sector, get updated and create and enhance their network. It is estimated that over 2000 participants from 70 countries will be present at the exhibition, as this exhibition is considered the largest of its kind in Europe.
Biomass energy is renewable green energy which is part of the modern green society and it is therefore considered to be a vital economic sector of any modern economy, a bio-based economy.
