There is no extra charge to join the site visit, although places are limited and allocated on first come first served basis.
UPM Biofuels has innovated and developed a production process to transform a wood-based residue of their own pulp production into a unique advanced biofuel that can be used in any diesel engine without modification. UPM BioVerno provides a unique high quality renewable diesel reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% compared to fossil diesel and reduces tailpipe emissions significantly. The first in the world commercial scale wood-based biorefinery located in Lappeenranta, Finland, started commercial production in January 2015 with an annual production capacity of 100.000 metric tons – or 120 million litres – of renewable diesel. UPM’s EUR 179 million investment was completed without public investment grants.
Please confirm your interest in attending when registering for the conference.

BIOeCON was formed (early 2006) with the mission to develop economical and ecological technology to valorize biomass wastes (2nd generation, nonfood = ethical, the third “e” in BIOeCON).
BIOeCON working with an international network of creative scientists from amongst others top universities and technology centers in Europe has developed several breakthrough concepts laid down in more than 50 patent applications in the area of the catalytic pyrolysis and in the area of the in-situ conversion of biomass in molten salts.
BIOeCON’s present focus is on:
• Biomass fractionation into high value Cellulose and Lignin components
• Advanced Thermo-Catalytic conversion
BIOeCON’s G2 technology is based on a very selective and robust pretreating process of biomass, making use of a unique inorganic ionic liquid comprising Zinc Chloride, which opens up the field for the economical production of products in the areas of:
• 2nd generation Ethanol and/or other chemicals.
• Advanced Biomaterials based on Cellulosic and Lignin (Nano) fibers.
• High yield conversion into liquid fuels and chemicals
The key benefits of BIOeCON’s G2 Biomass fractionation technology are:
• Very mild conditions, avoiding carbohydrate degradation products, which are bad actors: enzyme inhibitors and/or catalyst poisons.
• Non-destructive unraveling of the cellulose and lignin fiber components.
• High feedstock flexibility (Wood, Bagasse, Hemp, Straws, etc.).
• Robust process technology with a high on-stream time.

Bioenergy Association’s aim is to create new jobs and combat climate change by promoting the wise use of domestic fuels in energy production. We aim to increase the renewable energy share of total energy production by half and more than half of the degree of energy self-sufficiency by 2030.
The Swedish Bioenergy Association (Svebio) was founded in 1980, after the oil crisis in 1979. At that time bioenergy accounted for 10 percent of the energy supply in Sweden. Bioenergy was not yet commercial and a major part of the bioenergy was used internally in the wood industry.
Today Svebio consists of around 300 members, most of them enterprises active in producing/providing biofuels or using biofuels on a larger scale. Also among Svebio´s members are manufacturers/providers of burning equipment, machinery for collection and processing of biofuels, consultants, scientists, politicians as well as some private members. The broad spectrum of members has contributed to Svebio´s present position as a trustworthy voice among decision-makers. Svebio is playing an active part in all major political decisions concerning bioenergy and bioenergy-related matters in Sweden.
