Theme: Accelerating Advancements and Frontiers in Biofuels & Bioenergy
Biofuels-2015 is an extraordinary event designed for international professionals to facilitate the dissemination and application of research findings related to Biofuels and Bioenergy as replacement fuels. The conference invites participants from all leading universities, research institutions, and leading companies to share their research experiences on all aspects of this rapidly expanding field. The conference focuses on the production, industrial implementation strategies, and economic growth from biofuels. It is a scientific platform to meet fellow key decision makers all-around the Biotech organizations, academic institutions, industries, and environment related enstitutes, and making the congress a perfect platform to share and gain the knowledge in the field of bioenergy and biofuels.
The demand for biofuels is growing enormously. From the evidence available today, we believe that biofuels could, with developments in technology and favourable policy, constitute up to 30% of the world transport fuel mix by 2030. The world is in a state of biofuels fever. In 2006 biofuel constituted 49 billion litres, or 3% of the 1,600 billion litre market for gasoline and diesel fuel. By 2015 the biofuels market is likely to have tripled to 155 billion litres. In practical terms that is an increase of around 10 billion litres per year over ten years. In terms of current ethanol yields of 5,250 litres per hectar, this equates to an increase of land use for biofuels of approximately 17,000 square km per year. The bulk of the global demand for ethanol and biodiesel comes from a few major regions. The USA accounted for very nearly 50% of global ethanol consumption in 2006, with Brazil taking 36% of global volumes. The EU accounted for 75% of global biodiesel consumption in 2006. The reason why we believe the feverish rate of growth is likely to materialize is because, with no carbon beneficial substitutes available in the near term, biofuels are being promoted by governments.
Increasing energy demand, climate change and carbon dioxide (CO2) emission from fossil fuels make it a high priority to search for low carbon energy resources. Biofuels have been increasingly explored as a possible alternative source of fuel and represent a key target for the future energy market that can play an important role in maintaining energy security. It is primarily considered as potentially cheap, low-carbon energy source.
Biofuels-2015 is a platform to gather visionaries through research talks and presentations, and put forward many thought provoking strategies of production and scale up of renewable energy, making the congress a perfect platform to share proficiency.
Biofuels-2015 anticipates more than 300 participants around the globe with thought provoking keynote lectures, oral and poster presentations. The attending delegates include Editorial Board Members of related OMICS Group Journals. This is an excellent opportunity for the delegates from Universities and Institutes to interact with the world class Scientists.
