Fuelled by the demand for sustainable clean fuels, coupled with a favourable regulatory climate, increased government initiatives for eco-friendly alternative fuels, and with global energy consumption projected to increase 28% by 2040, the global biofuel market is expected to see significant growth over the next few years. Major blending mandates that drive the global demand for biofuels have been set in the US, China, and Brazil. These countries have a target of achieving 15-27% blend of biofuels with conventional fuel by 2020-2022, which is expected to drive global demand in their respective regions. Ethanol and Biodiesel remain the most popular fuels, however increasingly advanced liquid biofuels produced from feedstock such as lignocellulosic, waste oil, fats, and municipal waste count as a viable option to decarbonize energy sectors in a cost-effective way in industries such as aviation, shipping, and freight. However, limited feedstock availability, keeping up with advancements in process technology, and growing regulatory pressures across Europe, China, Brazil, and the US means that the global biofuels markets still have some significant challenges to overcome.

The inaugural Advanced Biofuels Virtual Summit 2021 will position itself as the leading premier event for the global advanced biofuels sector. With its interactive format of panel discussions, presentations, open discussion allowing for engaging Q&A, and structured business networking opportunities. The summit brings together key players, and senior representatives from bio diesel producers, downstream oil companies, clean fuel producers, biodiesel, renewable diesel and alternative fuels industries, process technology providers, fuel traders, brokers, consultants, crop science and feedstock suppliers to discuss the latest market trends, the impact of Covid – 19 on the global biofuels market, advancements in process technology, review existing regulation impacting the markets in Asia Pacific, Europe, North & South America , and ascertain where the most commercial developments & business opportunities lie globally.
