The Prize was established in 1994 for outstanding contributions to the development of energy from biomass. The Prize is named in honour of Johannes Linneborn, a pioneer of wood gasification. Deeply rooted in human ethics, he had far-reaching visions on the world's development, on health, transport and agriculture.

The Linneborn Prize is awarded every year to an individual for outstanding merits in biomass.

Nominations for the Johannes Linneborn Prize, given each year at the European Biomass Conference and Exhibition for "Outstanding Contributions to the Development of Energy from Biomass", were due by 28 February 2014.
