bio360

Event Website: Link

Bio360 Expo is a an internationally reputed reference event for the sector which brings together and showcases over two-days, diverse and complementary biomass value streams that are making an important contribution already today to displacing fossil fuels from our day to day lives.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The event comprises a comprehensive international conference programme with simultaneous translation, study tours, the innovation competition, and more besides. Full programme details can be found on the website www.bio360expo.com in the run-up to the event.

In a nutshell:

  • Key numbers anticipated for 2022: 8000 participants, 500 exhibitors, 40 countries, 100 international speakers.
  • bilingual conference rooms with simultaneous translation
  • a panel of global expert speakers
  • a rich programme covering a diverse range of topical subjects
  • unfettered access to 500 exhibitors from across the planet showcasing some of the world’s most innovative, dedicated and promising solution providers
  • the opportunity to engage with some of the leading thinkers and influencers from across the bioeconomy and bioenergy sectors
  • industrial sites visits in and around the local area 
  • the innovations of the moment unveiled at the prize giving ceremony of the innovation competition
  • hybrid options for those unable to attend in person 

WHERE IS IT GOING?

Thematically the event broadens its horizons each year to both anticipate and keep pace with this fast-evolving sector.

This too is part of the role of Bio360 Expo, to be open to new ideas and “out of the box” thinking but simultaneously to be a platform that enables proper evaluation and questioning in order to make sage choices for our age … and more to the point, for those still to come.

Whilst progress is being made today in terms of technical innovation, policy scope and ambition, financing mechanisms, regional support, capacity building etc. in favour of advancing the bioeconomy and bioenergy, in parallel, Bio360 Expo also keeps a close eye on evolving trends, possible future constellations and market configurations and to put them up for scrutiny and constructive examination in order that we make the right future directional choices. 

With global warming and climate change baring down upon us, time is not on our side and the permissible ratio of “trial-and-error” is very limited.

EXHIBITORS

International companies working and pioneering in the following fields, covering the full- bioeconomy and bioenergy cycles, exhibit at Bio360 Expo:

  • Solid bioenergy: biomass and wood-energy, solid waste recovery, forestry and agricultural co-products for cogeneration, district and industrial heating, renewable green gas, etc.
  • Liquid bioenergy: biofuels for the road, maritime and aviation transport sectors
  • Gaseous bioenergy: biogas, biomethane, bioNGV, green hydrogen* for local consumption or broader distribution 
  • Biobased materials and products*: materials and products derived from the biosphere as opposed to the geosphere (fossil), e.g. bioplastics, biochemicals, biomaterials, biopharmaceuticals, biotextiles, biocoatings, bioadditives etc.
  • Biochar*: biochar has a large evolving range of usages from agriculture and soil management, for livestock, water management, construction, biocomposites etc and is one of the few Negative Emissions Technologies as identified by the IPCC. With biochar, large volumes of excess atmospheric C02 can be extracted and sequestered
  • Carbon capture and utilization / storage (CCU/S): capturing and utilising C02 is a key tool for reducing net future carbon emissions and can equally make a significant contribution to fossil displacement through downstream processing leading to a large range of products (chemical, fuels, materials… the list goes on), the end goal being to achieve a world where all carbon is renewed** and all carbon resident in the geosphere (fossil carbon) remains locked where it is..

*New sectors presented at Bio360 Expo 2022

** There are only three sources of renewable carbon. Renewable carbon comes from sources which can be (re)grown (biosphere), (re)captured (technosphere & atmosphere) or (re)cycled (technosphere).

VISITORS

8000 decision makers are expected to attend (12% international) from all of the above sectors as well as from agriculture, agri-food, waste management, forestry and the wood industry, consultancy, energy, finance, industry, press, public bodies and institutions, federations and umbrella organisations, legal, to name but a few.
