Message from the 2023 Conference General Chair
What role can biomass play in the technologies mix to decarbonize the future?
The biomass community started more than twenty years ago, beginning with just an imagination of where biomass might play a role in decarbonizing the energy system and its impact on the economy. Since then many technologies have been developed, some of which have been demonstrated at relevant scale and some even reaching commercial scale TRLs.
After the Paris Agreement in 2015, global attention has become focused on decarbonization as a key element to fight climate change, and also, to a smaller extent, in identifying sources of renewable and circular carbon. As part of the implementation plan, novel technologies have emerged including CO2 capture and the development of a global clean-hydrogen system.
