First Announcement and Call for Papers



European Sustainable Energy Innovation Alliance – July 8-10 2012


There is no single solution which will provide for the world’s energy needs; solutions must be developed on a case by case basis, utilising the relative advantages of localities. This idea is a core value of the eseia. Our conference, “Sustainable Bioenergy: solving global problems using regional approaches”, will be held in Dublin on the 8th – 10th July 2012, and will deal with these vitally important issues.
This high profile event will be of interest to academic researchers, legislators and industry representatives.



Bioenergy Australia 2010 Conference – Biomass for a clean energy future


The conference program will have over 105 presentations, covering policies and programs, bioenergy projects and project development case studies, and will cover  biomass feedstocks and supply aspects, biomass heat and power, pyrolysis, gasification, liquid biofuels, algae for biofuels, carbon sequestration via biochar, anaerobic digestion and livestock wastes, energy from waste, plus overarching aspects such as greenhouse gas emissions of bioenergy systems.

The conference will include sessions provided by international speakers from the International Energy Agency’s Bioenergy program’s Task 39 on Commercialising Liquid Biofuels from Biomass. Two plenary session speakers are Professor Jack Saddler, University of British Columbia, Canada and Jim MacMillan, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Golden Colorado, USA, the Co-Task Leaders of IEA Bioenergy Task 39 Commercialising Liquid Biofuels from Biomass. Professor Michael Borowitzka of the Algae Research Centre, Murdoch University is again co-convening algae sessions in the conference program. The program will also include an extended panel discussion, entitled ‘Realising the Vision of Biomass for a Clean Energy Future‘, moderated by Professor Ralph Sims to build on the conference presentations.

The conference in 2009 highlighted work from Task 30 (predecessor to Task 43) and a conference summary can be found at http://www.future-science.com/doi/pdf/10.4155/bfs.10.22.



Tree Stumps for bioenergy – harvesting techniques and environmental consequences – Biomass for a clean energy future – Oct 24-26, 2011

Final Program now available:


Tree stumps are rich in energy and are now emerging as a resource that can provide bioenergy to heating plants and thereby reduce the consumption of fossil fuels. The consequences for biodiversity, soils, waters and greenhouse gases are, however, still poorly known. To fill in the gaps of knowledge, the Faculty of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences launched a research programme on Stump harvesting and environmental effects together with the Swedish Energy Agency. This programme is now in its final phase and will be rounded off with an international symposium titled ” Tree-stumps for bioenergy – harvesting techniques and environmental consequences” The goal of this symposium is to bring together a broad range of specialists working with stumps for bioenergy in order to build bridges across disciplines, perspectives and continents as well as to identify and to fill in gaps of knowledge. The main focus is on environmental and production effects, pest remediation and technical achievements but also on the balance between costs and benefits. At the end of the symposium, positive and negative effects of stump harvesting will be discussed and evaluated. The symposium will be held in Uppsala, Sweden, October 24-26, 2011, and will include keynote speakers, oral presentations, poster sessions and discussions as well as a symposium dinner and a half-day field tour (weather allowing).
