Key topics on the agenda

The global Covid-19 pandemic has caused widespread economic disruption across the world. To what extent has it affected the availability of raw materials, or the demand from consumers? How can actors work together to consolidate a robust response to the crisis?

This session will unpick new legislation in core European nations, while assessing the factors that are driving governments to implement change. Underneath individual nations lies deeper questions – such as whether the biomass industry is suffering from a poor public image, and whether the tension between national and supranational forces is exacerbating illiquidity.

This panel will examine the capacity for Asian ports to handle a future growth in demand, and which logistical and infrastructural improvements are required to unleash the region’s full potential.

What do we currently know about bark beetle epidemics, and how is forestry management trying to combat them? What are the expected short-term and long-term outcomes for producers if the epidemics continue to be such a disruptive force on biomass markets?

How do the four main biomass fuel types compare for sustainability, cost or viability? This session will weigh up their comparative risks and rewards, while also looking ahead to possible new generation fuels with potential in Asia.
