European Biomass Conference and Exhibition

June 1 to 4, 2015 - Vienna, Austria

The European Biomass Conference and Exhibition (EUBCE) is an annual event which, since 1980, is held at different venues throughout Europe. It is Europe’s largest international conference focused on biomass combining a highly-respected international scientific conference with an industrial exhibition and gathers participants from research, industry, policy and business of biomass. It highlights progress in research, technological development, and production processes. It brings together all key specialists to make it the most important international platform for dialogue between research, industry, and policy in the biomass sector.

The EU BC&E is supported by European and international organizations such as the European Commission; UNESCO – United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization; Natural Sciences Sector; EUBIA – the European Biomass Industry Association; WCRE – the World Council for Renewable Energy; and further organisations. The Technical Programme is coordinated by the European Commission, Joint Research Centre.

The EUBCE is the event in which the members of the bioenergy community can get a broad picture of the situation and trends emerging in today’s market. The Conference provides a high-level scientific programme and parallel events which attract participants from a wide-ranging background: researchers, engineers, technologists, standards organisations, financial institutions, policy makers, and decision makers.
