Green Power Conferences
September 17, 2012
In advance of World Biofuels Markets Brazil conference and the co-located Biomass Power Generation Brazil, both being held 18-19 September in São Paulo, the results of the first ever Brazilian Bioenergy Survey were released recently.
Based on responses from industry stakeholders from across Brazil, the survey showed an overarching industry belief that cellulosic ethanol, particularly made from sugarcane bagasse, will be the most heavily invested in, widely produced, and used next generation fuel in the country over the next decade. The survey respondents also overwhelmingly believe that the country’s Oil Majors will play a supportive role in developing and investing in new biofuels technologies, rather than sitting on the sidelines waiting for a technology to win out.
Key results from the first ever Brazilian Bionenergy Survey include:
The two-day event will also feature the Annual Brazilian Bioenergy Awards, recognizing excellence in the field of Brazilian biofuels and biomass-to-power. Today the shortlist for the awards was announced including:
Endorsed by UNICA, the Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association, the World Biofuels Markets Brazil will feature more than 400 Brazilian and International bioenergy leaders to discuss timely themes including aviation biofuels, oil majors’ role in the industry, advanced ethanol production, agricultural sustainability, biochemicals and bioplastics, and alternative feedstocks. The co-located Biomass Power Generation Brazil conference will examine the potential of biomass-fired power and bioelectricity generation across Brazil.
Sessions during both conferences will be simultaneously translated between English and Portuguese. The full conference agenda and biographical information on speakers is available at the World Biofuels Markets Brazil (www.worldbiofuelsmarkets.com/brazil) and the Biomass Power Generation Brazil (www.worldbiofuelsmarkets.com/biopowerbrazil) websites, by following World Biofuels Markets on Twitter @wbmnews, or by joining the LinkedIn World Biofuels Markets Brazil group.
