The Conference of the European Biogas Association (EBA) is its most important event, running on a biannual basis. It presents its 3rd edition on 27-29 September 2016 in Ghent, Belgium.
The upcoming Conference will revolve around biogas, syngas and biomethane production, along with digestate, biorefineries, and sustainable raw materials supply. Current debates on the EU level, such as next Renewable Energy Directive and future of biowaste within the Circular Economy will be reflected by a line-up of high-level speakers: Giovanni La Via (Member of the European Parliament), Professor Bruce Dale (Michigan State University) and Professor Erik Meers (University of Ghent), with many more to come. Also the future biogas and biomethane markets will be specially featured throughout the event.
“This year we have the pleasure to host our event with the University of Ghent, which brings its scientific and local market expertise to the programme” said Dr. Jan Štambaský, EBA President. “Belgium has greatly contributed to the technological development, and is something we hope will be reflected during the Conference and study tour”.
Participants from both the academia and the industry are encouraged as well to submit their scientific posters on all conference topics, which will be on display during coffee and lunch breaks throughout the Conference. Oral presentations and posters will be evaluated by the Scientific Advisory Council (SAC) of EBA, consisting of acknowledged experts in anaerobic digestion and gasification technologies. The submission deadline is set by 31 March 2016 and presenters will be notified by April 2016. Further details on the poster requirements and the selection process are available at the Conference website.
The 2016 Conference is expected to draw more than 300 industry representatives, decision makers and researchers from 25 countries. Its unique and dedicated audience will provide the perfect opportunity for exposure to a sector as rich and growing as anaerobic digestion and gasification. Interested parties can benefit from different sponsorship packages and attractive options specially tailored to fit their exposure needs.
Registrations for the Conference are welcomed as of January 2016 via the dedicated website. Attractive prices starting from 150 and 300 EUR are offered for students and EBA members respectively, although every interested party will be able to benefit from an Early Bird promotional fee until June 1 2016.
