International Bioenergy Conference and Exhibition

April 19 to 21, 2017 - Shanghai, China

International Bioenergy Conference and Exhibition

IBSCE 2017 is designed to bring together scientists, innovators and industrial people from around the world who are working together to implement bioenergy technologies. Experts and entrepreneurs from the entire world will have the opportunity to communicate, enhance their understanding, and share their experiences in order 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 conference programme is in part based on the successful format used for the European Biomass conference that takes places annually in Europe and on the experience from the previous edition of the event in 2015.

The International Bioenergy Conference and Exhibition will involve close interactions between fundamentals of the underpinning science, innovation at all levels, and industrial exploitation of the results of research, with the overall target of achieving economic and environmental sustainability in developing low-carbon economies across the world.
