EURACTIV invites you to this high-level Stakeholder Forum to discuss how EU policy can better fulfill its long-term decarbonisation strategy and the role of renewable ethanol in this effort. And it will assess the effect a changing EU political landscape – new Parliament, new Commission – will have on policy. Questions will include: - What are the main transport decarbonisation challenges? - Technological pathways – what role for biofuels, advanced biofuels, electrification, biomethane? - Carbon abatement costs of pathways – what are the climate benefits? - How should pathways be assessed overall? What role do social and economic costs play?
The FEW provides the global ethanol industry with cutting-edge content and unparalleled networking opportunities in a dynamic business-to-business environment. The FEW is the largest, longest running ethanol conference in the world—and the only event powered by Ethanol Producer Magazine. Indiana Convention Center, Indiana (USA)
Emmanuel Desplechin, Secretary General of the European Renewable Ethanol Association (ePURE) will be speaking along with many others at this one-day business forum which will discuss and debate the most pressing issues relevant to the biofuel industry. We will assess what smart policies and rigorous sustainability approaches will be essential for bioenergy to meet its full potential. Throughout the day, we will take a focused look at revised impact calculations, the implementation of the Renewable Energy Directive II and what these mean for business and the future of biofuels in the EU.
