Expert forums on "biodiesel" and "biomass demand for biofuel production" give insights into the latest developments - Early-bird discount just available until 30th of November
11th International Specialist Conference on Biofuels from 20th - 21st of January 2014 in Berlin
The example of Deutz Agripower engines, equipped with state-of-the-art exhaust gas aftertreatment systems, will be used to demonstrate that biodiesel as a pure fuel fulfils the highest legal requirements for exhaust emissions. It is particularly important in this context that the stability of biofuels can be achieved by use of antioxidants. The participants will be given an update on the latest research results. In addition, the forum will also address the question of whether new production methods and biofuel qualities are suitable for overcoming blend walls.
In the forum "biomass demand for biofuel production", the participants will first be given an overview of the global developments in biofuel production and consumption in relation to international political funding frameworks in North and South America, Asia and in the European Union. In light of these developments, the next presentation will pick up the topic of possible raw material price forecasts. The raw material and biofuel prices are increasingly determined by their efficiency to reduce greenhouse gases. Germany is the first country to introduce a greenhouse gas quota in 2015 and therefore a price forming and determining element in the international competition with regard to the greenhouse gas reduction efficiency.
In view of the current debates on the amendment of the Renewable Energy and Fuel Quality Directive, enormous challenges are arising not only for the European biofuels industry, but also the biofuel industry in third countries such as Argentina, Brazil, the United States as well as Malaysia and Indonesia. The sales strategies of these countries put an important focus on the European market and will now have to be readjusted. The punitive tariffs applied by the European Commission against Argentina and Indonesia show that the trade practices have not been always fair.
