8th Annual International Biomass Conference & Expo 2015
The 8th annual International Biomass Conference & Expo will take place April 20-22, 2015, at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This dynamic event unites industry professionals from all sectors of the world’s interconnected biomass utilization industries—biobased power, thermal energy, fuels and chemicals. Organized by BBI International and produced by Biomass Magazine, this event brings current and future producers of bioenergy and biobased products together with waste generators, energy crop growers, municipal leaders, utility executives, technology providers, equipment manufacturers, project developers, investors and policy makers. It’s a true one-stop shop – the world’s premier educational and networking junction for all biomass industries.

International Biomass Conference & Expo is where future and existing producers of biobased power, fuels and thermal energy products go to network with waste generators and other industry suppliers and technology providers. It’s where project developers converse with utility executives; where researchers and technology developers rub elbows with venture capitalists; and where Fortune 500 executives and influential policy makers sit side-by-side with American farmers and foresters.
International Biomass Conference & Expo is the largest, fastest-growing event of its kind. In 2015, this event is expected to draw nearly 1,500 attendees. In 2014, the event drew more than 1,000 attendees and doubling the attendance of the inaugural show. This growth is fueled by a world-class Expo and an acclaimed program.
Once again, the 2015 International Biomass Conference & Expo program will include 30-plus panels and more than 100 speakers, including 90 technical presentations on topics ranging from anaerobic digestion and gasification to pyrolysis and combined heat and power, all within the structured framework of four customized tracks:
- Track 1: Pellets & Densified Biomass
- Track 2: Biomass Power & Thermal
- Track 3: Biogas & Landfill Gas
- Track 4: Advanced Biofuels & Biobased Chemicals
International Biomass Conference & Expo will help you – as a biomass industry stakeholder – identify and evaluate technical and economic solutions that fit your operation. It's time to tap into the revenue generating potential of sustainable biomass resources. Get started today by registering for the 2015 International Biomass Conference & Expo!
The International Biomass Conference & Expo unites current and future producers of biomass-derived power, fuels and chemicals with waste generators, energy crop growers, municipal leaders, utility executives, technology providers, equipment manufacturers, project developers, investors and policy makers. The event fosters public and private partnerships that help bioenergy producers and large-scale waste generators identify and assess available production resources and viable technology solutions for improving operational efficiencies and reducing industrial greenhouse gas emissions. Volatile energy costs, mounting climate change concerns and the anticipation of federal carbon cap-and-trade policies are compelling waste generators to think differently – much differently – about waste liabilities and, in some cases, the rising value of already valuable process side streams.
