2013 International Biomass Conference & Expo agenda announced

By Biomass Magazine | January 11, 2013

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 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,” said Tim Portz, vice president of content and executive editor at BBI International. “This year's International Biomass Conference & Expo already features over 130 speakers and moderators, over 40 poster presentations and an industry tour featuring two operating biomass power facilities; and we continue to evaluate and seek additional content offerings. 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:

Track 1: Pellets & Densified Biomass 
Track 2: Biomass Power & Thermal
Track 3: Biogas & Landfill Gas 
Track 4: Advanced Biofuels & Biobased Chemicals 

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.
