BioMob #3: Mobilising Biomass | 11 January 2024
The Platform Renewable Fuels invites you to take part in our third strategy event for mobilising biomass feedstocks: BioMob#3.
During this workshop we will explore how we can ramp up the biomass feedstocks necessary to de-fossilise the transport sector.
There is a much wider availability of biomass feedstocks than what we are currently using. We are already making use of co-products of corn and wheat for ethanol or using waste fats / oils, but there remain large quantities of untapped potential in the waste and residue streams of the agricultural sector.
Our key message is: we have enough availability of sustainable biomass - let’s start using it and let’s get organised.
- General introduction (Loes Knotter - PHB)
- The new green production system (Ayla Ursu - TNO)
- Followed by a discussion: Matching the biomass feedstock with the right technology
- Avenues in findings your new feedstock base (Olivier Dubois - agronomist & former UN FAO expert)
- Followed by discussion: Opportunities and challenges for European feedstock base vs overseas
- The case of identifying opportunities in agri-commodity chains
- Biomass Research's perspective by Hans Langeveld
- Solidaridad's perspective by Jeroen Kroezen
- TU Delft's perspective by Susan van der Veen & Sivaramakrishnan Chandrasekaran
- Followed by a discussion: Division of roles and responsibilities along the biomass supply chain
- Lunch -
- Going beyond biofuels
- Perspectives from the chemical industry
- Assessing the current instrument landscape
- Followed by a discussion: Biomass allocation and investing in a changing landscape
During the event we will articulate what it takes to achieve a sustainable reliable feedstock system and identify what is holding us back. These elements will be turned into a technical note and into a conversation starter with important stakeholder parties such as the European Commission.
