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. 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 200 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.

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.
