IEA Bioenergy Conference 2015 on bio-kerosene

27-29 October 2015, Berlin

The target of international aviation industry is halving the sector’s CO2 emissions by 2050 compared to 2005, despite an annual increase in passenger numbers of 5%. The uncertainty concerning the sustainably available biomass potential but also the lack of competitiveness of sustainable bio-kerosene is currently hindering its deployment.

This year’s IEA Bioenergy Conference 2015 comprehensively addresses the thematic field of bioenergy in a variety of presentations, panel discussions and workshops. A focus of the conference will be alternative, bio-based aviation fuels – from the sustainable cultivation of energy crops, to economic and political framework conditions. Thomas Rötger from the International Air Transport Association will address in his presentation the global development of the use of bio-kerosene. Michael Lakeman will outline developments at Boeing, and Maarten van Dijk representing the Dutch producer of bio-based aviation fuels skyNRG will examine the profitability of different production pathways.

Registration is open until 29 September 2015.
