There are great reasons to get involved in EUBCE 2017:

  • be part of the cutting edge of research and innovation for biomass, their application and integration
  • strengthen your network with the Biomass research community, industry, investors in innovations and policy makers

Contributions are welcome on all aspects of biomass.

The Conference will be structured along the following main topics:

1.Biomass Resources
New subtopic: 1.6 Integrated biomass production for energy purposes
2.Biomass conversion technologies for heating, cooling and electricity
3.Biomass conversion technologies for fuels, chemicals and materials
4.Bioenergy integration in energy systems
What’s NEW this year?
Inclusion of the EUBCE proceedings in Scopus 
The European Biomass Conference and Exhibition Proceedings will be indexed in Scopus. The citation of the proceedings will therefore increase the visibility of all papers
Moderated poster presentations
A speaking slot to present your poster!

Poster authors will be expected to present their posters to the chairperson and to the conference delegates and to be prepared to answer questions and to discuss their project.

Operational, Risk and HSE Considerations for Biomass Generation and Co-Firing

The Biomass Generation Forum is intended to bring operators together to assess a range of operational, strategic and technical themes for existing biomass and co-firing plants. Our operationally focused agenda will feature presentations from a range of biomass plant operators, plus technical subject matter experts, who will equip you with lessons learned and knowledge that you can implement in your organisation.

Taking place in Birmingham on 22-23 September, 2016, this Forum has been designed with interactivity in mind. Presentations - focusing on operations, risk and HSE - will be followed by extended Q&A sessions, while time has also been built into the agenda for discussion groups and round tables with the experts. There is no better opportunity to join an informal and interactive environment, designed to maximise learning, discussion and networking.

Confirmed case studies and expert insight include:

  • Hear from Dong Energy about management of operational risk under tough market conditions
  • Experience with new build Värtan CHP 8 - road to zero emission from Fortum
  • Find out from Ofgem  about the latest policy changes in the Renewables Obligation (RO)
  • Overview of the newly constructed and commissioned Ultra Super Critical Power Plant at the Maasvlakte from Engie
  • Ramboll - Optimisation of CHP Performance
  • RWE - Perspective on the challenge of conversion and the process of integration with new equipment and existing fire protection and detection systems

Discover the lessons learned and knowledge that you need to implement successful, safe and risk-free biomass generation processes from Europe's only operationally focused biomass generation event.
