Top experts in finance from Gershman, Brickner & Bratton, IF LLC, Global Settlements LLC and Kilpatrick & Stockton LLP; join developers from Fiberight and Enerkem; who will be alongside cutting edge technology providers and chemical companies Velocys, Calysta, Novomer and Liquid Light as speakers in Orlando to discuss the MSW to biofuels and bio-products conversion market (6-8 October).

The MSW to Biofuels and Bio-products Event(October, Orlando) will address and find solutions to the current challenges faced by the MSW conversion market in North America.

It is no surprise that the most major industry challenge is currently financing in North America – the MSW to Biofuels and Bio-products Event will address this most prevalent issue by hosting the best placed financial advisors in the industry as keynote speakers. These key professionals will discuss how to best utilize available debt, equity and non-dilutive funding sources for advanced biofuels and bio-products. The speakers will also conduct sessions, which will offer solutions for how to present a start-up so that it is attractive to investors. In addition the financial de-risking of projects and having due diligence paid will also be explored.

The strong financial emphasis at the event has been well timed given that the Department of Energy has just announced a $4 billion loan guarantee program for renewable energy projects. Industry expert David Haberman of IF LLC states, “the promise of return in biofuels investments has changed due to changes in legislative and regulatory requirements.” The benefits of this program, which promises to give the industry the boost needed for great renewable success in America, are a positive environmental shift for the Obama administration. In addition, the EPA administrator Gina McCarthy has signed a final rule to make several modifications to the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program whereby the final rule now has a broader range of fuels eligible to aid the production of cellulosic fuels. The benefits of this pro-green shift have already been felt by Optimus Technologies have been the first to receive EPA approval for an advanced biofuel conversion solution for commercial trucks.

Ultimately, the latest changes in policy have made the current political climate the most favourable yet for those who are actively seeking involvement or who are already involved in MSW conversion to biofuels and bio-products. Renewable Waste Intelligence has responded to this opportunity by offering a meeting place for those across the industry to utilize the current opportunity presented and learn from industry leaders. The event will explore the issues of financing, reaching commercialization, partnerships, the potential for bio-products and policy or regulatory issues. Waste2nrg hailed last year’s event as a “great opportunity to get all angles of the green energy industry. Companies, government, financial people, engineers, lawyers.”

The conference is organized by Renewable waste Intelligence, who are well known in the North American renewables market event space. To see how you could get involved visit the event webpage: or get in touch with the event director Emily Rose: erose(at)renewable-waste(dot)com.
