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. The initiative is the result of several year of experience in which EUBIA has dedicated its efforts to promote and support new industry oriented initiatives in cooperation with investors, small and large private enterprises, etc.

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.

At the event we strive not only to bring you to the same location at the same time as your customers/suppliers/peers, we strive to ensure you meet face-to-face with each and every one of your target contacts and to provide you with the time you need to have multiple unhurried conversations with them and build a lasting business relationship:

• A pre-event informal introduction the evening before the conference
• A minimum of five hours’ networking built into the two day conference agenda
• A networking grid which enables you to make your target contacts aware you are looking for them
• The option to join either social drinks or dinner during the evening of Day One
• ACI’s on-site team will assist you in locating your hard-to-find target contacts & make face-to-face introductions

Of course, if there is anybody you are unable to meet over the two days, ACI’s event team will do their best to initiate contact after the event.


ACI is doing everything to ensure that all its events go ahead as advertised, returning to the much-missed and valuable face-to-face interaction as soon as possible.  In order to ensure the events are delivered as safely as possible, venues are chosen and procedures are adjusted in line with the relevant local and regulations and guidelines.

These have been exceptionally challenging times with very fast-moving updates. As we get closer to an event we look at each one individually, paying careful heed to local regulations, but without ignoring the international situation. Whatever happens, ACI will safeguard the investments that attendees have made by either automatically moving it to the new dates of the event or a full credit will be provided for use when booking a future ACI event.
