Conference of the European Biogas Association 2018 announces  extended programme and exhibition options

The fourth edition of the EBA conference will take place January 24-26, 2018 in Antwerp, Belgium. The conference will have two full days with presentations, poster sessions and an exhibition. On the third day participants can join a study tour to biogas facilities in the region.

 The 2018 conference is expected to draw more than 300 industry representatives, decision makers and researchers from around Europe and even overseas. The Theme of the conference is ‘Greening gas’ and topics include renewable gases (biogas, syngas and biomethane) and its production (anaerobic digestion, gasification, power-to-gas), trading, future markets, process technology, digestate, biorefineries along with biomethane trading and ERGaR (European Renewable Gas Registry).

“We have seen a growing interest in these topics and in our event. Therefore we have decided to extend the plenary and breakout sessions from one and a half days to full two days”, explains Dr. Jan Štambaský, EBA President. “Also, our exhibition options have grown. This year we offer our exhibitors extended possibilities, in line with their demand. In addition to shell scheme options, exhibitors can also choose to build their own stand.”

 The first three editions of the EBA conference took place in September/October. Last year EBA decided to combine its major event with its General Assembly in January: “Our General Assembly will take place the day before the conference. By combining the two events in one week, we look to offer our members additional advantages and opportunities for bringing the industry together”.

 Participants from both academia and industry are encouraged to submit an abstract of their scientific work or current project for presentation during the 2018 conference. Oral presentations and posters will be evaluated by the Scientific Advisory Council (SAC) of EBA, consisting of acknowledged experts from anaerobic digestion and gasification technologies. The submission deadline is set by June 15, 2017. Guidelines for authors are available at the conference website.

Registrations for the Conference are welcomed via the dedicated website www.biogasconference.eu. Full conference rates start from € 250 and € 500 for students and early bird registrants respectively, whereas EBA members can benefit from attractive discounts.
