Looking at the market, biofuels production has started to become a top priority; growing rapidly over the last decade. It is trying to overcome new quests both in technology and regulation to balance production demand and climate change. Reasons for the industry to deal with these issues include oil price spikes, the need for increased energy security, and last but not least a concern over greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels. Biofuels provided 1.8 % of the world’s transport fuel in 2008 and according to Eurostat data “the integrated energy and climate change strategy adopted in December 2008 provided further stimulus for increasing the use of renewables to 20 % of total energy production by 2020 (including a 10 % biofuels target for transport).”
Global Biofuels Summit 2011 is just the type of a conference to address this situation; well-focused and targeted, providing absorbing insights into future innovations, as well as leading trends and policies specifically for 2nd generation and next generation biofuels technology. It will bring together government representatives, bioethanol & biodiesel producers, the agricultural sector as well as the finance and investment world for two days of intriguing presentations and unique networking opportunities.
