1980 Brighton
The 1st European Biomass Conference initiated by the European Commission, Directorate General for Research, Science and Education
“to bring together biomass experts from many countries, to provide a good picture of the most recent advances in research, development and application of biomass technologies for energy production”

1996 Copenhagen
The First Biomass Technology Exhibition took place during the 9th European Biomass Conference.
Since then, the annual event is a combination of a very renowned international Scientific Conference with an Industry Exhibition held at different venues throughout Europe.

Now the EUBCE is established as one of the most important events for the biomass community worldwide in:

  • size
  • international acceptance
  • relevance


Mission & Vision

The EUBCE provides:

  • A high-level Scientific Programme
  • Parallel events

and it attracts:

  • Participants from a wide-ranging background: researchers, engineers, technologists, standards organisations, policy and decision makers, financing institutions
  • Research & industrial exhibitors

Today

The EUBCE covers the entire value chain of biomass to conduct business, to network, and to present and discuss the latest developments and innovations.

The EUBCE is supported by European and international organizations such as the European Commission, UNESCO - United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Natural Sciences Sector, EUBIA - the European Biomass Industry Association, WCRE - the World Council for Renewable Energy and further organisations.
