What's new for 2018?

A wider focus on the wood chip market: 
2018 sees the launch of the Wood Chip Focus Day. Because of the increased economics, increasing demand for wood chips in Europe and new consumption coming on stream, we have created a whole day where you can learn about new market developments while networking with those dedicated to the wood chip market.

Exploring the Baltics as the next growth region:
All eyes are on the Baltics as companies look to explore how much wood pellet and wood chip supply the region can export - we are launching a new Baltics Focus Day where you can hear about new sourcing opportunities, policies, new operations and how to overcome the main logistical challenges.

Expanding Asia content into the main conference day agenda: 
As the biomass market in Asia continues to grow and is becoming more integral with the international biomass industry, we are including more Asia content and presentations with your two day pass. You will get the chance to hear about new coal-to-biomass conversions and governmental policies.

Case studies on new projects across the globe: 
Hear the latest updates on biomass conversions and new technologies from the US, Europe and Asia. Understand who is investing and where new demand for biomass will come from.

A more tailored approach to networking: 
This year we’re introducing new opportunities that allow you to network and do business with a wider cross section of the international biomass market. Do not miss the opportunity to extend your networks and meet new stakeholders in the biomass business.

The All Access pass: 
Do you want to attend four conferences for the price of one? This year, we are making all streams available so that you can delve in and out of our Premium Pellets, Baltics, Wood Chip and Introductory Workshop, with presentations included – all for an extra £200 + VAT.
