Technical sessions agenda announced for Int'l Biomass Conference

By BBI International | December 23, 2013

BBI International announced this week the agenda for the technical sessions of the 7th annual International Biomass Conference & Expo, North America’s largest and fastest growing biomass conference, taking place March 24-26 in Orlando, Fla. The 2014 agenda—featuring four comprehensive tracks—is tightly focused on leading-edge developments in the biomass industry, from feedstock cultivation, harvest and storage to conversion technology, project finance and regulatory guidance. 

The 2014 main program will include 30-plus panels and more than 100 speakers, including 90 technical presentations, all within the structured framework of four informative tracks:

Track 1: Pellets & Densified Biomass

Track 2: Biomass Power & Thermal

Track 3: Biogas & Landfill Gas

Track 4: Advanced Biofuels & Biobased Chemicals

“Our agenda already boasts more than 100 of this industry’s sharpest minds and we haven’t even published the agendas of the two preconference seminars that we’ll be hosting on the Monday preceding the event,” said Tim Portz, vice president of content and executive editor for BBI International. “When it’s all said and done, we’ll have more than 150 speakers and moderators on our various agendas. Watching the International Biomass Conference & Expo agenda come together is always a humbling, yet a gratifying experience. I’m grateful for the incredible biomass experts that continue to support this event with their expertise.”

In addition to the main conference agenda and expo hall, BBI has added two preconference events. The first is called the Pellet Supply Chain Summit, which is focused on what is arguably the hottest and fastest growing segment of the biomass industry. The second event is called the Bioenergy Project Development Seminar that will focus on projects either proposed or currently under construction in the biomass industry. “Because of the addition of the two preconference events, many new faces are expected to be at this year’s show,” said John Nelson, director of marketing at BBI International. “Having such a large pool of industry experts to draw upon has allowed us the opportunity to create both a strong main conference and preconference agenda. We are excited to be announcing the preconference seminar lineups soon.”
