International Conference on Sustainable Biofuels — February 26-27, 2018 — New Delhi, India

Submitted by on January 18, 2018 – 8:54 pmNo Comment
International Conference on Sustainable Biofuels   —   February 26-27, 2018   —   New Delhi, India

Jointly organised by Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science and Technology, India & Mission Innovation – India along with Biofuture Platform.

EVENT CONCEPT

Use of fossil fuels for transportation contributes significantly to global greenhouse gases (GHG) emission. The sustainable biofuels have ability to reduce the GHG emission load and this consideration led to establishment of Sustainable Biofuel Innovation Challenge (SBIC) under Mission Innovation (MI).

Advanced or second-generation biofuels produced from non-food biomass materials and specially grown high yielding plants or algae, if managed sustainably can contribute to significantly reduce emissions. However, many of the advanced biofuels still remain in pre- or an early commercial stage of development and need innovations and breakthrough for low cost sustainable production. The sustainable biofuel innovation challenge aims to accelerate research, development and deployment of low cost, high GHG impacting advanced biofuels.

The sustainable biofuel innovation challenge under MI is co-led by India, Brazil, Canada and China. The other participating countries include Australia, the European Commission, Finland, France, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, UK and US.

The sustainable biofuel innovation challenge will build on existing knowledge of individual participating countries and international institutes like IEA, IRENA and in collaboration of Biofuture Platform. A major aim of these cooperation is to avoid duplication of efforts and define clear areas of collaboration for speeding up of innovations in this area. 

CONFERENCE AIMS

  • Provide a platform to Government policy makers, investors, industry and research community to exchange experiences and challenges related to development and scaling up of advanced biofuels.
