The Bioenergy Association of Finland (Bioenergia) is the guardian of the interests of more than three hundred member organizations and individual members. As the EU and Finland move towards carbon neutrality, we want to develop the bioenergy sector so that Finland has the best conditions in the world to produce sustainable and even carbon-negative products based on biomass. In our operations, we strive for the highest possible value added and exports, and we support energy self-sufficiency, security of energy supply and supply, employment and the regional economy. We work together with our members as part of a bio- and circular economy where energy is recovered from by-products.

The Green Chemicals Blog first appeared on 8th November 2007 as part of the ICIS blog community and successfully expanded until publication was interrupted for a month from July to August 2012 as the blog left the ICIS platform and continued as a non-corporate private entity dedicated to covering the business of sustainability within the chemicals and materials markets and o provide data and analytics to global forestry, petrochemicals and renewable carbon markets.
EUREC, the Association of Renewable Energy Research Centers, promotes European research and education activities for the renewable energy sector, and supports the development of innovative technologies to enable the transition to a sustainable energy system. The organisation was founded in 1991 as European Economic Interest Grouping (E.E.I.G.).
EUREC’s members are prominent research and development (R&D) groups spread across Europe, operating in all renewable energy technologies. Our members also conduct research into supporting technologies such as energy efficiency, storage, distribution and integration, and undertake studies to evaluate the social and economic aspects surrounding renewable energy.
Apart from work in policy development and education and training (through the European Masters programmes), EUREC is involved – to varying levels from communication to coordination or advisory – in numerous European co-funded projects centred on renewable technologies. These technologies revolve around a wide array of technologies (wind, biomass, small hydro, marine, geothermal, photovoltaics, solar thermal electricity, and solar thermal heating and cooling).
EUREC is a partner of the European Technology and Innovation Platform Bioenergy – Support of Renewable Fuels and Advanced Bioenergy Stakeholders (ETIP-B2022-2025) project that aims at triggering collaborative efforts of stakeholders from research to innovation to implementation in the field of renewable fuels and bioenergy. The ETIP Bioenergy aims to actively engage with stakeholders and civil society, link their needs to policy making of the European Union and Member States, and provide advice to industry.
European Bioenergy Future (EBF 2022) conference will resume in Brussels, allowing the biomass industry to meet again in person! The EBF2022 will take place on 22-23 November at the prestigious Steigenberger Wiltcher Hotel.
This two-day conference is expected to be attended by +150 participants from the bioenergy business sector as well as institutional players.
The EBF aims to link European policies and bioenergy markets, with a focus on how EU legislation will affect biomass supply and carbon capture and storage (BECCS). The event will cover a variety of topics, including: sustainability, REPowerEU, pellets, wood chips, bioenergy carriers and energy-intensive industries.”

Enviva is the world’s largest producer of industrial wood pellets, a renewable and sustainable energy source produced by aggregating a natural resource, wood fiber, and processing it into a transportable form, wood pellets. Enviva owns and operates ten plants with a combined production capacity of approximately 6.2 million metric tons per year in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and Mississippi, and is constructing its eleventh plant, in Epes, Alabama. The Epes plant is projected to add 1.1 million MTPY – approximately an 18% increase – to Enviva’s production capacity and is expected to be the world’s largest wood pellet production plant once constructed. Enviva sells most of its wood pellets through long-term, take-or-pay off-take contracts with creditworthy customers in the United Kingdom, the European Union, and Japan, helping to accelerate the energy transition and to decarbonize hard-to-abate sectors like steel, cement, lime, chemicals, and aviation fuels. Enviva exports its wood pellets to global markets through its deep-water marine terminals at the Port of Chesapeake, Virginia, the Port of Wilmington, North Carolina, and the Port of Pascagoula, Mississippi, and from third-party deep-water marine terminals in Savannah, Georgia, Mobile, Alabama, and Panama City, Florida.
Steeper Energy developed a hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) technology suite that has now been proven through a pilot phase and is in the process of being proven in a demonstration-scale facility in Norway. Steeper’s technology confirms an economic pathway for the production of biofuels such as marine bunker fuel, heating oil, renewable diesel, and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) from a wide range of biowaste feedstocks. Our focus has been on lignocellulosic materials, but other streams include the biogenic portions of MSW, animal waste, and agricultural wastes among others. In addition, Steeper’s Calgary-based Advanced Biofuels Center (ABC), a lab-scale refinery, was commissioned in late 2021. ABC is optimizing Steeper’s Hydrofaction® Oil upgrading pathways to advanced biofuels with a particular focus on maximizing yields of finished fuels. Steeper holds over 180 patents either obtained or pending in 25 patent families and is advancing towards the commercialization of its technology in prospective plant projects around the world.
