An invitation for members of industry

Dear Bioenergy technology developer and industry representative,

The ambitious objectives of the recast of the Renewable Energy Directive and the aspiring targets of the Paris Agreement have placed significant responsibilities and at the same time important obligations to all of us in view of decarbonising the  EU economy across all sectors towards a clean energy transition.

The EU industry and research community are leaders and, I dare say, the world  number one in bioenergy and this is thanks to your efforts.

With this background it is imperative to work hand in hand with the research community enabling to maintain your leadership role.

The EUBCE has long become a world leading event for the biomass and bioenergy sectors based on a global forum for exchanging knowledge, debating policy options and addressing innovation in an open forum. Against this background, the EUBCE aims to highlight the role of the technology developers and industry across all sessions and topics of the programme.

I therefore take the liberty to invite you to submit an abstract and participate at the EUBCE 2019 in Lisbon. The call for abstracts is open until 5th November 2018. The scientific committee will be strengthened by experts with technology and industrial expertise who will take the responsibility to review and select the best keynote, plenary and visual presentations in a high scientific level conference programme.

I look forward seeing you in Lisbon.

With my best regards,

Kyriakos Maniatis
Industry Committee Coordinator
