The conference will consider the many facets of bioenergy, including around 80+ presentations on:

  • Biomass resources and supply chain aspects
  • Conventional and advanced liquid biofuels
  • Algae and other future feedstocks
  • Pyrolysis, hydrothermal processing and bio-char
  • Biogas production and utilisation
  • Heat and power
  • Biorefining and biochemicals.

Overarching aspects of bioenergy, such as policies, finance and investment, markets, life cycle emissions and sustainability will also be covered.

In past years 200-300 delegates have attended the conference and the organisers expect a similar attendance this year.

The program will include a trade exhibition and technical posters and include a tour to bioenergy facilities in the region.

Expressions of interest are now being sought to give oral and/or poster presentations at the conference.

As with the past conferences, presenters are provided with a heavily discounted registration rate for the conference.

Please ensure you have read the “Abstract Instructions” for authors before submission, which can be found at
