  • Mobility and transport 2030 - Future fuels for transport modes; vehicles, flights and shipping
    Host: Malin Strand, Policy expert and Project Manager Fossilfritt Sverige

    Sweden has a goal of reaching 70% reduced emissions from domestic transport by 2030. Biofuels, electrification and a transport-efficient society are three important parts that all are needed to reach the goal.

    This session will discuss solutions and policies to reach 70% reduced emissions in domestic transport, and what potential exists within each part - biofuels, electrification and transport-efficient society.

    Panel: Maria Wetterstrand, CEO Miltton Purpose
    David von Platen, Line Manager Wagenborg
    Ole Terland, SVP SCA
    Ylva Öhrnell, Business Process Management & Sustainability Director, DHL Freight
    Magnus Edin, CEO SunPine

  • Bio4Energy: Tailored trees, improved growth, new products and challenges towards a biobased economy
    Host: Ulrika Rova, Professor in Biochemical Process Engineering, Luleå University of Technology
    Vice programme manager for Bio4Energy

    Bio4Energy is a strategic research environment, appointed by the Swedish government. Bio4Energy includes 220 researchers from Umeå University, Luleå University of Technology, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences at Umeå, working in collaboration with RISE Energy Technology Center, RISE Processum and RISE Innventia. The research environment also includes an industrial network of 21 members. By conducting world-leading research through interactions with academia and industry we aim to support a renewal of the forest industry sector towards the transition to a Swedish biobasedeconomy.

    In this session we will highlight the importance of research to achieve a biobased society. We will give examples of how we can drive evolution towards commercially interesting traits by using forest biotechnology and how we can improve forest growth by novel biobased fertilisers. We will discuss challenges for the replacement of fossilbased raw materials with biobased raw materials and how to develop smarter products and smarter use of raw materials.

    Panel: Dan Boström, Professor in Technical Inorganic Chemistry, Umeå University, Programme manager for Bio4Energy
    Totte Niittylä, Associate Professor in Plant Cell Wall Biology, Swedish University of Agriculture, Umeå, Feedstock platform manager
    Robert Lundmark, Professor in Economics, Luleå University of Technology, System Analysis and Bioeconomy platform manager
    Stina Jansson, Environment and Nutrient Recycling

  • Our bio-based everyday, today and tomorrow
    Host: Carina Håkansson, CEO Swedish Forest Industries Federation

    Decarbonizing energy is often at the center of the EU political debate, but that is not enough. To achieve a full transformation and achieve the goal of a net-zero society, it is equally important to decarbonize more sectors and more products. In EU's Long term strategy (LTS), bio-economy and material substitution are highlighted as key success factors in reaching net-zero emissions in the EU by 2050

    In this session we will discuss why material substitution must have a leading role in the societal transformation we have ahead of us. Best practices and inspiring examples from different sectors will be shared.

    Panel: Ulf Larsson, President and CEO SCA
    Annica Karlsson, Material and Innovation Leader Textile, IKEA
    Helena Lidelöw, Construction manager Lindbäcks
    Lars Winter, CEO Domsjö

  • Challenges for a circular and bio-based economy
    Host: Mattias Goldmann, CEO Fores

    The EU and individual member countries have decided that we are going to move from a linear and largely fossil-fuel based economy to a circular and bio-based economy. But what are the main obstacles to changing the market logics? How can policy be developed to help us deliver on the targets? How can businesses find opportunities in the changing models? In which sectors is the switch the most important when it comes to meeting the climate and SDG targets? And what role can individual markets like Sweden have to help speed up the change? These are some of the questions that will be discussed in this session.

    Johanna Mossberg, Focus Area Manager - Fossil Free Transport, Research Institutes of Sweden
    Olof Johansson, Forest Policy Director, Sveaskog
    Henri Vermeulen, Vice President Recovered Paper, Smurfit Kappa
    Ulf Westerberg, innovation leader, Bothnia BioIndustries Cluster
    Camilla Lehorst, Deputy director, Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation

  • The regional forest programme
    Host: Ylva Sardén, Senior Advisor at the division of Internationalization and Growth County Administrative Board of Norrbotten

    The forest has the potential to contribute to sustainable solutions on important issues such as climate change mitigation and the development of a circular economy as well as on rural development. Still, the benefits and values of these contributions depends on our ability to balance the usage and the preservation of our forests in a sustainable way. The purpose of the regional forest program is to gather knowledge and to bring actors together so that we can succeed in this act of balance.

    In this session we will discuss the different values, opportunities and holdbacks of a sustainable development of the forests in Norrbotten.

    Björn o. Nilsson, Governor of Norrbotten County
    Helena Österlind, gender equality specialist
    Staffan Norin, Region manager The Swedish Forest Agency
