International Bioenergy (Shanghai) Exhibition and Asian Bioenergy Conference 2015

October 21 to 23, 2015 - Shanghai, China

The International Bioenergy (Shanghai) Exhibition and Asian Bioenergy Conference 2015 is the new leading conference and exhibition in Asia, an invaluable and influential international platform to discuss the role of bioenergy in the Asian context. A knowledge exchange on the latest scientific and industry results, developments in policies, and deployment and business that will enable the move towards efficiency and sustainability in the bioenergy sector.

The main objective will be to promote synergy among markets, technologies, and investments. It will create a focal meeting point for industry executives, governmental policy makers, leading academics, investment agencies, and media representatives, setting up strategic communication channels and important business opportunities for the bioenergy sector. The Conference Technical Programme will be coordinated by the European Commission, JRC.
