Lignofuels 2017

From Wednesday 01 February 2017
To Thursday 02 February 2017

Already on its 9th edition, this two day conference will bring together key lignofuels stakeholders to join our forum discussions and networking, including leaders from advanced generation biofuels companies from across the globe.

The main conference will be held in Helsinki, on the 1st & 2nd of February 2017.

Exclusive Site Visit: UPM Lappeenranta Biorefinery
A day prior the conference, a limited number of conference attendees will have a unique opportunity to join an exclusive site visit to the UPM Lappeenranta Biorefinery – the world´s first commercial scale wood-based biorefinery in Lappeenranta, Finland.

UPM Biofuels has innovated and developed a production process to transform a wood-based residue of their own pulp production into a unique advanced biofuel that can be used in any diesel engine without modification. UPM BioVerno provides a unique high quality renewable diesel reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% compared to fossil diesel and reduces tailpipe emissions significantly.

This refinery started commercial production in January 2015 with an annual production capacity of 100.000 metric tons – or 120 million litres - of renewable diesel. UPM’s EUR 179 million investment was completed without public investment grants.

There is no extra charge to join the site visit, although places are limited and allocated to the conference attendees on first come first served basis. Therefore, we would strongly suggest to book your place early to avoid disappointment.

Who Will Attend?
Technical, Strategic and Business Development Executives from First and Advanced Generation Biofuels Producers, Oil Refiners, Process Technology Providers, Enzyme Developers, Engineering Firms and Agribusiness as well as Financiers, Investors, Policy & Regulators, Automotive & Aviation Industries, Consultants, Traders & Brokers and Chemical Companies
