ACI is very happy to announce that during the afternoon of Tuesday 18th of June, a limited number of conference delegates will have the unique opportunity to visit Alberdingk Boley’s chemical plant near Düsseldorf.

Alberdingk Boley has been a partner for customers for more than 190 years. Their systems are based on water rather than solvents. The environmentally friendly binders from Alberdingk Boley refine, join, beautify and protect surfaces. In addition, they are Europe’s largest producer of castor oil, linseed oil and their derivatives.

There is no extra charge to attend the site visit, but spaces are strictly limited and allocated to conference delegates on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to final approval of the site visit host. Therefore, we would strongly suggest to book your place in advance to avoid disappointment.

More information regarding the visit will be announced shortly…

EUBIA, the European Biomass Industry Association, was established in 1996 as an international non-profit association in Brussels, Belgium. It groups together market forces, technology providers, and knowledge centres, all of them active in the field of biomass.

EUBIA’s main objective is to support the European biomass industries at all levels, promoting the use of biomass as an energy source, developing innovative bioenergy concepts and fostering international co-operation within the bioenergy field. EUBIA’s vision is a strong and reliable biomass sector able to contribute significantly to a global, sustainable energy system, preserving ecosystems equilibrium and ensuring economic development.

Given that biomass will have an important role to play in promoting sustainable development worldwide and the deployment of clean energies, EUBIA intends to contribute in strengthening European policies in this sector, protecting industrial interest, identifying new opportunities, promoting job creation and better environment conditions.



The European Biomass Research Network (EUBREN) is an initiative developed by the European Biomass Industry Association which consists of a selection of Universities and Research centers from the European Union member states.

EUBREN will actively work on new “Research-for-industry” projects focused on the development of advanced technologies and strategies. New initiatives, activities and projects promoted by EUBREN will be of interest for the industry and should be oriented on an improvement of biobased products and bioenergy competitiveness in the European Market. EUBREN will therefore foster synergies among its members and with the industry in order not only to reach breaking research advances but also to easily commercialize them.

Furthermore, as the Network of leading academic centres in the field of biomass, EUBREN shall play an essential role as a disseminator of knowledge and good practice and making biomass research alive in public debate.
