Date: 20 September 2022

Location: Welcome Hotel Rama International, Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India

Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) in association with World Bioenergy Association (WBA) invites you for Indian Bioenergy and climate change Forum 2022 – an international conference on Tuesday, 20 September 2022, at 09.00 hrs Welcome Hotel Rama International, Aurangabad, Maharashtra. The event will convene market leaders in supply chain of biomass conversion to bioenergy including companies in pellet production, briquetting, heat/steam users and discussion on various climate change initiatives  

India is a major player in the global energy scenario. Biomass already plays an important role in increasing renewable share in transport (bioethanol and biodiesel), cooking (biogas), heating and electricity (solid biomass such as bagasse, pellets, briquettes). Significant targets for renewable energy, favourable economic policies to promote deployment, abundant feedstock and broad public and political support, offer a tremendous opportunity for rapid and large-scale deployment of bioenergy in the country.
