Share Article

BiomassWorld 2008 will be held in Beijing, China on September 23-24, 2008. This gathering of major authorities and project stakeholders from Asia, Europe and the US, with discussion focusing on integrating biomass into the energy value chain, through biomass power generation and cellulosic ethanol. Technological advancements & favorable renewable energy policies will set the tone for the more than 20 experts sharing insights on commercializing biomass to energy. This conference will be the premier networking venue for the industry and play a critical role in developing vital business relationships.

The BiomassWorld 2008 conference to be held in Beijing on September 23-24, 2008, will map the dynamic shift of the global renewable energy industry to encompass biomass. As the modern global energy market and world governments are seeking to adapt existing renewable energy policy and regulatory structures to encourage the development of Biomass to Energy Projects, the timely BiomassWorld 2008 will look at two issues that are critical to the widespread commercialization of Biomass:

-->Biomass as the answer to the rising costs in the power generation sector & rural electrification projects.

--> Cellulosic Ethanol derived from the Lignocellulosic conversion of biomass sources as the ideal solution to the food vs. fuel debate & a viable source of biofuel.

The conference features insights from major authorities on the integration of biomass from its conversion to power, gas and liquid fuels as an alternative energy source as well as the latest technological, policies, projects and market trends. Focused case studies from biomass energy, power generation and cogeneration projects in China, Malaysia, India, Pakistan, Thailand and the Philippines will put regional developments in Biomass into broader perspective.

Top Chinese Bioenergy companies National Bio Energy Co. and COFCO will be sharing their insights on the biomass to power generation and cellulosic ethanol in China at BiomassWorld 2008 in Beijing. As the world's third largest producer of Ethanol and rich in agricultural and forestry waste materials, the Chinese government is pushing ahead in establishing Biomass power plants. On May 21, 2008, China Holdings Inc reported that by year 2012, the total biomass generating capacity in China is expected to reach 300 million kilowatts in 2012 and 1600 million kilowatts by 2020.

To add on, key US cellulosic ethanol producer - Range Fuels will be addressing their commercialization experience as well as the emerging opportunities for cellulosic ethanol production in China and Asia. Also gain insights from Enzymes suppliers, Genencor and Novozymes, who will update the latest on cellulosic ethanol production technologies, projects in China and the obstacles for successful commercialization.

BiomassWorld 2008 in Beijing will also feature a critical paper presented by Ir. N. Ravi Menon, Senior Research Fellow of Malaysian Palm Oil Board, who will share insights into the projects, economics and constraints of waste palm biomass-based power generation in Malaysia. In addition to accelerate more Palm EFB projects, Carbon Capital Corp Sdn Bhd launched their 4 Biogas projects and a 10 megawatt biomass power plant in Sarawak.

Other invited panelists include Almoiz Industries Limited who will present the potential for sugar cane bagasse & other biomass power generation projects in Pakistan. Asia Biogas Corp, Philippines will also be presenting a paper on executing large biogas project in Southeast Asian markets. MPPL Renewable Energy will map the issues related to sustainable biomass supply chain, technologies and modular biomass power plant solutions in India. Hear also from Poyry Engineering on the industrial biorefinery in Asia's Pulp/Paper industry and many more.

BiomassWorld 2008 will see key decision makers in the renewable energy sector convene to discuss the future of this dynamic and viable source of energy. Please visit for more information on how to register for this authoritative event today.
