Market Analysis - Euro Biomass 2017

Euro Global Summit and Expo on Biomass

(Theme: A Step towards Development of Green Future)

Summary: Euro Biomass-2017 is the platform to gain or share the knowledge in the new technological developments in the field of chemical engineering. This conference brings together professors, researchers, and practitioners in all the areas of biomass and provides an international forum for the spreading of approved research results, new ideas and practical developments. We are honoured to invite you all to attend and register for the “2nd Euro Global Summit and Expo on Biomass (Euro Biomass-2017)” which is going to be held during October 12-13, 2017 in London, UK.

The organizing committee is gearing up for an exciting and informative conference program including plenary lectures, symposia, workshops on a variety of topics, poster presentations and various programs for participants from all over the world. We invite you to join us at the Euro Biomass-2017, where you will be sure to have a meaningful experience with scholars from around the world. All members of the Euro Biomass-2017 organizing committee look forward to meeting you in London, UK.

Importance & Scope: Biomass is regarded as a most important renewable source of energy because it can be used as an alternative source for energy production. Natural sources for energy production are becoming extinct day by day. The main reason behind biomass energy production is that it can be produced from wood, plant and animal wastes, forestry wastes which indicate that biomass can be produced from those materials that are regarded as wasted materials which are again re-used and energy is produced. Biomass does not emit any harmful gases, produces clean energy, abundant and renewable, and reduces the usage of fossil fuels for energy production and also it can be used to create different products. The main reason behind biomass usage is it reduces emission of greenhouse gases.

Usage of biomass will grow within the coming years. The clean electricity generation will be enough for more than 17,000 UK householders a year and the usage of renewables for electricity generation in UK is increased by 60 per cent and the share of electricity is around 9.7 per cent in 2012 and 15.5 per cent in 2013. Around 3.9 million tonnes of biomass, mostly in the form of woodchips and pellets, were burnt to generate electricity during those 12 months. One tonne of pellets translates into two tonnes of greenwood. Usage of biomass will grow exponentially within coming years. The market value of electricity generated from biomass in the United States was over $45 billion in 2011. About 70% of all biomass in the world is used in the residential sector. 14% is used in industry and 11% is transformed into electricity, heat, or energy such as liquid fuel or biogas.

Why UK?

The presence of universities, hospitals, legal/accounting and other professional services, together with key installations of the U.K. make it favorite destination for scientific meetings.

The London economy is dominated by four major sectors: oil/gas and related activities, tourism, the port and ship/boat building, and aerospace manufacturing. Boasting attractions such as its magnetic French Quarter and river-boat gambling, London has a history of solid tourist trade. In a city with more than 10 million visitors annually, the hospitality business supplies more than 66,000 jobs in the service sector such as accommodations and restaurants. In 2010, tourists spent $6.9 billion in London.

Glance at Market of Advertising and Marketing:

The UK’s use of renewable energy sources is low in comparison to most other European Member States. As a proportion of total energy use, the contribution from renewable sources was 1.5% in 2005 though this had doubled to 3% in 2009. The 2009 Renewable Energy Directive sets a target for the UK to achieve 15% of its energy consumption from renewable sources by 2020. Clearly, the challenges to achieve this are considerable, requiring intense deployment of renewable energy technologies within a period of less than ten years.

The UK NREAP suggests that that the 15% target could be reached by achieving contributions from renewables in three main sectors of around 30% of electricity demand, including 2% from small-scale sources, 12% of heat demand, 10% of transport demand. The use of biomass is limited. NREAP figures for total biomass use in electricity, heat and transport sectors in 2010 are as 305ktoe solid biomass used in the heating sector, 18ktoe biogas used in the heating sector, 861ktoe biodiesel, 135ktoe bioethanol, 580MW solid biomass installed electrical capacity, or 5500GWh of generation, 1340MW biogas installed electrical capacity, or 6830GWh of generation. In Europe, approximately 45 GW of thermal power generation capacity is co-fired with biomass with from as little as 3% to as much as 95% biomass fuel content.

Power generation from renewable sources in UK in 2008 was estimates at 21,600Gwh, representing 53% increase since 2004 and accounting for just under 6% of total UK generation. Future targets for renewables indicate that this has the potential to rise to 30% of total UK generation between 2015 and 2020.
