Bioenergy for our low-carbon future

Thursday, 18 October, 2012

Despite the reported benefits of bioenergy, the uptake in Australia has been relatively slow. What is holding the industry back and where are the opportunities for growth? This, and more, will be discussed as part of a comprehensive program of presentations at the Bioenergy Australia 2012 Conference ‘Biomass for a low carbon future’ being held at the Sebel & Citigate Albert Park Hotel, Melbourne from 26 to 27 November 2012, with an off-site technical tour of bioenergy facilities in the region on 28 November 2012.

Covering policies, projects, case studies and emerging opportunities, presentations at the conference will consider the many facets of bioenergy including: management and supply of suitable biomass feedstock; research and development of new feedstocks; bioenergy opportunities under RET and the Carbon Farming Initiative; requirements for large-scale production; waste gasification applications; optimisation and economic viability of biogas; and a number of interesting industry applications.

Over 300 delegates are expected to attend the conference, which has been organised by Bioenergy Australia, a not-for-profit information and networking alliance of some 80 member organisations. Early bird registrations close 26 October 2012 and further details are available at
