We support sound bioenergy development driven by well-informed decisions in the forestry, agriculture and energy sectors as well as in investment institutions and government agencies. We address critical issues for deployment of sustainable biomass and bioenergy supply chains, including social, economic and environmental outcomes of feedstock production and supply.
IEA Bioenergy Task 43: Sustainable Biomass Supply Integration for Bioenergy Within the Broader Bioeconomy has launched an initiative to identify successful examples of biomass logistic and distribution points for bioenergy and the bioeconomy. The goal of this initiative is to explore integrated bioeconomy supply chains to develop solutions for the reliable production and supply of more high-quality biomass for energy. These examples are also meant to serve as sources of inspiration that other biomass producers can use to enhance the sustainability of their own activities as well as for policy makers to familiarize with the bio-hub concept.
This event takes us a step forward towards new biomass supply chains within a concept of bioeconomy. The innovative examples selected for this workshop show how biomass can be produced together with wood products and food in sustainably managed landscapes.
The aim of the workshop is to develop a framework for the successful establishment of bio-hubs in support of the bioeconomy. Examples of existing bio-hubs will be presented, and an analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT analysis) of existing and potential projects will be performed by participants. The workshop will have a proactive format, consisting of dynamic exchange of showcase presentations and work in groups. The results of the workshop will feed into the development of the framework for bio-hubs, which will then be further applied and tested as part of following activities.
BioEast Initiative and the IEA Bioenergy foresee that the gathered knowledge and shared experience at the workshop will contribute to the improvement of sustainable biomass mobilisation for energy purposes, notably in the BioEast macro-region and in other member countries of the IEA Bioenergy.

Welcome to the Advanced Biofuels Conference 2019 – Europe is ready for advanced biofuels!
The Swedish Bioenergy Association (SVEBIO) heartily welcomes participants to the beautiful city of Stockholm to attend our 5th Advanced Biofuels Conference on 17-19 September, 2019.
Advanced biofuels for Europe are key for reducing emissions in the national transport sectors. There is commercial breakthroughs in new technologies, new policy measures adopted and changing business models, all which of are no longer on the horizon.
This year, we invite you to participate in latest developments in European policy, energy system transition to renewable fuels, new technologies & partnerships – with leading companies presented. There is increasing multitude on vehicles for neat biofuels like HVO100, bio-CNG, E85, ED95, B100 to complement today’s biofuels blended with conventional fossil fuels.
The Advanced Biofuels Conference is intended for people creating a sustainable transport sector. Speakers and delegates will be policy makers and politicians, leading scientists, researchers, engineers, as well as executives and representatives from companies and organizations. The conference will bring:
Date 17th Sept, 2019 – 19th Sept, 2019
