WS28: Technology advances in liquid biofuels and renewable gas
Vienna, 17 October 2022
Workshop organized by IEA Bioenergy in collaboration with the Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK) and BEST – Bioenergy and Sustainable Technologies GmbH
Current status of the programme: Programme_ExCo90-workshop_20220923
Both the accelerating climate change as well as the energy crisis related to the war in Ukraine, call for urgent action to move away from fossil fuels such as oil and gas. Energy savings and renewable energy are the key tools to achieve that. Renewable transport fuels and renewable gases will need to have an increasing role in the transport system and the gas distribution system. A strong growth in so-called ‘advanced technologies’ will be required, starting from a variety of feedstocks, particularly underutilised heterogeneous biomass resources. Meanwhile, increasing prices for oil and gas have totally changed the picture and prospects of renewable fuels compared to one or two years ago.
The workshop will explore the advances being made in biofuels technologies, as well as technologies to produce renewable gas (biomass based), and will discuss what is needed to accelerate their roll out to the market. It will contain three parts: the first session will consider advances in renewable gas / biomethane, the second advances in liquid biofuels, and the third session will go into concrete developments in Austria.
The event will take place at the Plus-Energy-Building of the Technical University of Vienna, on the 11th floor, with a beautiful view over the city. Address: TUtheSky, Getreidemarkt 9, 1060 Vienna, Austria. You can also join online via live stream.
Participation to the workshop is free of charge, but pre-registration is required. Registration here.
Please indicate if you will participate on-site in Vienna, or if you would like to connect online and follow the live stream. There is room for around 100 participants in Vienna.
