Why should your business sponsor the AEBIOM Bioenergy Conference in 2013?
In its 4th year, the AEBIOM Bioenergy Conference has established itself as one of the main leading bioenergy conference in Europe. The event has gained major proportions and is aiming higher each year.
More importantly, 2013 is an important year to become active and involved because of the following reasons:
- The EC will release this year a report (very likely accompanied by a legislative proposal) on sustainability criteria for solid and gaseous biomass used for heat and electricity production.
- The European Commission recently proposed to change the RES and Fuel Quality Directives and introduce measures aiming to tackle ILUC issues. The proposal is now under discussion in the Council and in Parliament
- The debate on carbon emissions accounting is expected to continue and the principle of biomass carbon neutrality will have to be strongly supported so as to face the criticisms related to the so called “carbon debt” issue.
Therefore, do not miss your chance to be a leader in these discussions and expose your brand in front of high representatives and officials.
