By European Conference and Expo: Future of Biofuels 2024

The 6th European Conference Future of Biofuels will take place on October 23 to 24, 2024 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

In early 2024, the European Commission released the Union Database for Biofuels (UDB) Alignment and updated the Revised Renewable Energy Directive, aiming to streamline and enhance the biofuels sector in line with the latest regulations and sustainability goals. Complementing these efforts, the REPowerEU plan, initiated in response to energy market disruptions from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, reinforces the EU’s commitment to swiftly reduce dependence on Russian fossil fuels by 2027. The EU also takes decisive steps with maritime fuel laws and aviation regulations, setting and progressively reducing acceptable emissions levels, thereby serving as influential catalysts for biofuel market development.

This year we are focusing on production and implementation of biofuels and future fuels in maritime and aviation sectors to speed up their decarbonization. Other points of focus are: development of new supply chains, latest trends and perspectives for low carbon fuels in fuels mix but also new production technologies, refineries case studies and more. The event is set to bring industry stakeholders, unique content, workshop style discussions and networking. Gives an opportunity to showcase your products and services in the networking area and hold meetings with leaders from the industry.
