2013 International Biomass Conference & Expo agenda announced
BBI International announced this week the preliminary agenda for the 6th annual International Biomass Conference & Expo, North America’s largest and fastest growing biomass conference, taking place April 8-10, 2013 in Minneapolis. The 2013 agenda—featuring four comprehensive tracks—is tightly focused on leading edge developments in the biomass industry, from cultivation, harvest and storage to conversion technology, project finance and regulatory guidance.
"We continue in our mission to create the most content rich biomass program in North America. This year's International Biomass Conference & Expo already features over 130 speakers and moderators, over 40 poster presentations and an industry tour boasting two operating biomass power facilities, and we continue to evaluate and seek additional content offerings,” says Tim Portz, vice president of content and executive editor at BBI International.
"The biomass industry creates a unique programming challenge in that our audience includes professionals that operate existing biomass energy facilities, and the developers of new facilities and facilities that boast next generation conversion technologies. I'm pleased with the content we've been able to put together to address both of these important audiences.”
The 2013 program will include 30-plus panels and more than 130 speakers, including 90 technical presentations, all within the structured framework of four informative tracks:
In addition to the panel sessions, attendees will be able to visit current biomass facilities and projects located around the Minneapolis Metro area. Tours include the following locations:
Koda Energy – A state of the art 23.4 MW biomass heat and power plant.
Elk River Energy – A recovery station that converts refuse derived fuel from mixed municipal waste into energy.
