By BBI International | December 12, 2018

Biomass Magazine announced Dec. 12 the agenda for the 12th annual International Biomass Conference & Expo, taking place March 18-20 at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center in Savannah, Georgia. The three-day agenda will be divided into four tracks covering pellets and densified biomass; biomass power and thermal; biogas and waste-to-energy; and advanced biofuels and biobased chemicals, as well as a preconference event titled, “The Biomass Preparation, Handling and Storage Workshop.” The preconference event is a full-day session taking place March 18 prior to the evening opening reception in the expo hall and will detail the latest advancements in material handling. More information can be found here.

“We were overwhelmed with the diversity and quality of abstracts submitted this year,” said John Nelson, director of marketing and sales for BBI International. “This is the largest biomass event in North America covering biomass power and heat, biogas, pellets and advanced biofuels, and the agenda will truly provide in-depth content for all parts of the biomass industry.”

The agenda, which was gathered from biomass industry experts from around the world and rated by the conference selection committee, will give attendees the ability to hear and learn from nearly 100 industry experts and professionals on a variety of pressing topics such as best practices in dust control and fire risk mitigation; why biogas developers continue to eye food waste streams for new projects; updates on commercialization efforts in leading next-generation biofuel production technologies; how the RFS and eRINs could be a boon for biomass, biogas and waste-to-energy; and much more.

“When our technical sessions are paired with the expertise of our technology vendors, consultants and service providers exhibiting at our Expo, the International Biomass Conference & Expo is arguable the world’s largest annual ‘All Things Biomass’ event,” said Tim Portz, program developer and executive director of the Pellet Fuels Institute.

Registration for the International Biomass Conference & Expo is now open and attendees have the opportunity to save $200 if registered by Feb. 6.
