The European Biomass Conference and Exhibition (EUBCE) is a world class annual event which, since 1980, is held at different venues throughout Europe.
EUBCE covers the entire value chain of biomass to conduct business, network, and to present and discuss the latest developments and innovations, the  vision is to educate the biomass community and to accelerate growth. This year, EUBCE will be held in Stockholm between the 12th and 15th of June.
EUBREN and EUBIA members are kindly invited to request their EUBCE discount here.

EUBCE 2017 in Stockholm, Sweden

Stockholm is the first ever winner of the European Green Capital Award and has adopted a unique approach to sustainability where every aspect of environmental, economic and social impact is part of the equation. Or in other words: just about everything that happens in Stockholm does so with sustainability in mind.

The Call for Papers is Open! Submit your Abstract by 31st October

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. Each moderated poster session will be guided by chairpersons leading delegates through the poster area and stopping at each poster of their corresponding topic. Posters will be displayed during 4 days of the Conference.

As every year, EUBIA is sponsoring EUBCE and will greet you at its stand with more information on the Biomass sector.

Launch of the €8 million AGROCYCLE

EUBIA proudly announces the launch of €8 million Horizon2020 AGROCYCLE research and innovation project addressing the recycle and valorisation of the waste from the agri-food sector. Part of the 26 partners consortium from 8 EU countries plus mainland China and Hong Kong, EUBIA will assist in the development of a holistic approach to advancing and understanding how to make the best use of the full range of waste streams from the agri-food sector to achieve sustainable agri-food waste valorisation. Europe is currently generating 1.3 billion tonnes of waste each year and among these, 700 million tonnes are agricultural waste. Taking into account the one third projected increase in world population by 2050, best estimates indicate a need to increase agricultural and food production by two thirds by 2050 to keep up with the food demand while avoiding climate change impacts such as desertification and water shortages. The project with a duration of 3 years will involve a wide range of European agricultural sectors such as the wine, olive oil, horticulture, fruit, grassland, swine, dairy and poultry industries creating sustainable value chains for the agricultural sector both at primary and processing levels across organic and conventional farming.

EUBIA Report on Biobased Char Market potentials

After several years working on biomass thermochemical conversion technologies, and thanks to the present high level international projects, EUBIA is pleased to present its latest, 45 pages report on biobased char. 

1. The report provides an overview on the present biomass thermochemical valorization technologies for biobased char production. The overviewo on different biobased char production processes facilitate the market assessment of different products achievable:

  • Biochar from Intermediate Pyrolysis, 
  • Biocoal from Torrefaction
  • Charcoal from slow pyrolysis
  • Hydrochar from Hydrothermal Carbonisation

2. The market potentials of different quality of biobased char is analysed starting from the main competitors, from coal to lignite, peat, pellets. Current market price of all these feedstocks are provided in the report

3. A range of market sectors is evaluated for biobased char, including:
  • Energy, 
  • Iron Industry, 
  • Soil Conditioning,
  • Activated carbon.
An overview on biobased char quality criteria and standards is provided in order to evaluate the suitbility for different market application.

EUBIA launches news website

EUBIA finalized work spanning over the past five months and is ready to present you its new website.

The new fresh and modern website is divided into nine sections making it easier to find information about the association, its work and members, as well as showcasing some of the most important News and Events in the sector.
