Welcome to the Advanced Biofuels Conference – Online-only!

Due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Swedish Bioenergy Association (Svebio) has decided to condense and switch the format of Advanced Biofuels Conference 2020 to a virtual online-only event that will take place on 16 September 2020. The next in-real-life edition of the annual conference will be in September 2021.

“The health and safety issues and travel restrictions imposed by the current COVID-19 situation rule out any possibility of hosting a meaningful gathering of international delegates at ABC 2020 – a conference that aims to discuss global opportunities and issues related to bioenergy and the low carbon bioeconomy. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the physical conference until September 2021. We are sorry for having to take this action and we regret the inconvenience, but we are sure that this is the right and responsible thing to do in these exceptional times,” said Gustav Melin, CEO, Svebio.

All invited and confirmed speakers maintain their respective status and all confirmed participants, including sponsors and exhibitors, will have the option to carry over their registration fees to ABC 2021 that will be organized in Stockholm during 21-23 September, 2021 at the same hotel venue.

Policy and market – virtual ABC 2020 on 16 September

Svebio will host a virtual online-only event on 16 September, with a special focus on policy and market updates for advanced biofuels and transportation.

The condensed format will consist of at least two sessions in which high-level presenters will discuss issues such as the opportunities and shortcomings of the European Green Deal, implications and challenges of the recast Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) on waste and residue feedstocks. Each session closes with an interactive panel discussion along with Q&A from online participants.

Free of charge for all subscribers of Bioenergy International

“The virtual ABC 2020 will be free-of-charge to join and participate in for all subscribers and advertisers of our magazine Bioenergy International. This represents a modest cost for participation that will provide value throughout the coming year, keeping everyone updated on bioenergy business development until it becomes possible to physically meet again at ABC 2021. In this way, we are happy to bring a taste of the Advanced Biofuels Conference to you via your smartphone or computer no matter where you are!” ended Gustav Melin.

Non-subscribers can participate for 106 Euro for participants in Sweden (incl. 6 % VAT) and 100 Euro for International participants (excl. VAT). The fee includes a digital subscription of Bioenergy International.
