Breaking News

China and India expressed the interest to organise meetings with European representatives, technology developers, industry representatives and research experts on sustainable aviation fuels and biomethane.

However, this is not possible during the EUBCE and it was therefore decided to organise two Tripartite meetings on Sunday 23 June 2024; the Biomethane Tripartite taking part in the morning and the SAF Tripartite taking place in the afternoon.

Both meetings are by invitation only, but summaries of the key points will be presented at the closing session of EUBCE on 27 June.


Technical Tours

We want to ensure you get the best experience from EUBCE 2024.

Therefore, we’ve organized exclusive guided technical tours on Friday morning to visit and discuss innovative and forward-thinking installations.
