BBI International’s fourth annual International Biomass Conference & Expo in St. Louis has just ended and I have to tell you, if you didn’t attend you really missed out.

Judging by the number of people who attended the break out panels, people in the biomass industry are hungry for information. I attended a couple of panels with more than 100 people in then and in some there was standing room only.

We also had two great keynote speakers and plenary sessions. One plenary session was on U.S. government policy as it relates to all facets of the biomass industry and the other on international opportunities, both were extremely well-received.

The staff of Biomass Power & Thermal and Biorefining Magazine wrote several stories on the conference, which you can see on this newsletter and at www.biomassmagazine.com and www.biorefiningmagazine.com.

And don’t forget we have our Northwest Biomass Conference & Trade Show Oct. 11-13 in Pittsburgh coming up. For more information on that event, go to http://ne.biomassconference.com.

 I am going to make this short and sweet because I just got off the plane in Grand Forks and I’m totally exhausted.

    The biomass industry in the UK is flourishing as well with the recent incentive and support fromt the government for domestic and commercial use of this technology in an attempt to incentivise the use of more sustainable energy. Although I do not know of any similar expo in the UK. If you have or anyone else has any info on expos in the UK it would be gratefully recieved.

    Here is a link for the European Biomass Conference & Exhibition. It's not in the UK but I'm sure people from there will attend. http://www.conference-biomass.com/
