The Swedish Bioenergy Association (SVEBIO) and Bioenergy International magazine welcomes participants, online and on-site, to its 9th edition of Advanced Biofuels Conference 2023 in Gothenburg, Sweden. This conference will focus on biofuels for the maritime and aviation sector, with much development.

The aviation and shipping sectors are being transformed at an increasingly rapid pace, on both the demand and supply side. Oil and gas majors are retrofitting existing refinery assets to produce renewable fuels while others are developing new capacities from a myriad of feedstock sources. Pushed by policymakers and consumers alike, airline- and shipping majors are committing to significant renewable fuel offtakes in the race to zero while competing to stay in the black.

The transport sectors face big changes in the near future. Apart from today’s economic situation there are national energy challenges like security of supply, energy security and security of cost. Perhaps the biggest challenge of all is the transition to a low carbon economy using biofuels, while fossil fuel prices fluctuate heavily.

How will the “Inflation Reduction Act” in the USA and the European Union “Fit for 55 package” in progress reduce CO2 emissions? How can the industry create business opportunities for this emerging market, taking advantage of technological innovations? What new technology developments have been made? This will be presented and discussed.
