Following the conclusions of the abstract review process, the international Conference Scientific Committee, made up of more than 100 representatives from research and industry, put together a challenging programme of over 800 plenary, oral and visual presentations. In May, participants from over 70 countries are expected to attend the world's largest specialized Biomass Conference in Lyon. Each of the five Conference days offers a wide-ranging variety of presentations from all areas of Biomass.
The Conference Programme covers
- BIOMASS RESOURCES
- BIOMASS CONVERSION TO HEAT, ELECTRICITY, AND BIO-PRODUCTS
- FUELS FROM BIOMASS
- INDUSTRIAL DEMONSTRATION AND MARKET IMPLEMENTATION
- POLICIES AND ENSURING SUSTAINABILITY
Each of these topics will be discussed in depth from different points of view and by lecturers with broad professional backgrounds. Prof. Josef Spitzer, Conference General Chairman of the 18th EU BC&E, remarks: “Presenters and participants will learn about the latest developments in these conference topics and to exchange expertise. Oral and visual presentations in the Conference sessions will be supplemented by topical workshops and policy debates outlining the bioenergy options and their contribution to meeting the world’s future energy demand”. Prof. Spitzer adds: ”Together with the opportunity to see practical applications of bioenergy systems in the Exhibition, the conference will make it worthwhile to come to Lyon, part of UNESCO, World Heritage and second largest city in France that has been a forerunner in promoting bioenergy”
The Opening Ceremony will take place on Monday, May 3, 2010, at 10.00 am. The daily Conference Programme starts at 8.30 am with highlight plenary presentations followed by a unique and carefully selected combination of presentations from all topics of Biomass.

This Forum will highlight the perspectives for large scale utilization of biomass in sectorial market. Energy industrial organizations (utilities, technology suppliers, biomass supplier, etc) will be focal presenters at the Forum.
For 30 years now, the European Biomass Conference and Exhibition (European BC&E) has combined a very renowned international Scientific Conference with an Industry Exhibition. Since 2007 the Conference and Exhibition takes place every year. The European BC&E is held at different venues throughout Europe and ranks on top of world's leading event in the biomass sector.
This year's European BC&E will be held in Lyon, France. The Conference is expected to attract about 1,500 participants from more than 70 countries.
