EUBCE 2016 side-event: Long-Term Prospects for Advanced Liquid Biofuels
6-7 June 2016
IRENA will hold a discussion at the 24th European Biomass Conference and Exhibition (EUBCE 2016) on the long-term prospects for advanced liquid biofuels. The side-event aims to provide insights on the latest developments with the technology and highlight IRENA’s work in this area.
Launched in 1980, EUBCE gathers international biomass experts in different cities across Europe annually to discuss the latest advances and innovations with biomass technologies. The conference aims to educate the biomass community and promote the growth of the biomass technologies.
Another IRENA-EUBCE 2016 side-event looks at “transforming the transport sector” with the production and deployment of advanced liquid biofuels in the next three decades.
