Advanced Biofuels Markets
Delivering the first billion gallons
8 - 10 November 2011
Meet the leading experts who are bringing advanced biofuels to market Advanced Biofuels in 2011: Where Are We Now?
President Obama said his administration will strive to meet a Congressional target of producing 36 billion gallons of ethanol and advanced biofuels by 2022.
The plan is that 20 billion gallons per year will come from advanced biofuels, 15 billion gallons from corn ethanol and one billion gallons rom biodiesel
BUT U.S. Environmental Protection Agency last fall announced it had no choice but to reduce the 2011 interim target for advanced biofuels to 6.6 million gallons from the previous 2011 target of 250 million gallons. How are we going to get from 6.6 million gallons in 2011 to 20 BILLION gallons in 2022?
By bringing the industry together: At the Advanced Biofuels Markets congress you will hear from CEOs and Presidents who are driving the development of Advanced Biofuels and who will get us to the RFS target, speakers will include Advanced Biofuels Company Executives, Venture Capitalists & Investment Bankers, Corporate Strategic Investment and Alliance Executives, EPC firms and industry suppliers. If you are responsible for making decisions in this sector, you need to be here.
By not going it alone: To reach this goal the industry has to work in concert -networking to build new relationships, catching up with buddies, partnering and collaborating are the key to success. As Jim Lane (Biofuels Digest) always says 'Go out there and network like crazy!' For most of you networking is the most important reason to attend an event, so for 2011 we are actually having an entire day dedicated to structured networking: roundtables, one to one meetings and speed networking. No other biofuels event offers this comprehensive chance to have a conversation with literally every conference attendee (450 expected). That equates to 20 hours over 3 days
By knowing what technologies and services to use: To achieve the RFS targets, the industry needs to produce viable, commercial-scale advanced biofuels. What technologies are working? Which companies can help you achieve your goals? What support services are available out there? Our Exhibition Hall will be the hub for networking and business development, giving you a chance to network with exhibitors, hear about their products and understand your needs.
