The 2nd Symposium on Biomass/Wastes Energy and Environment

The 2nd Symposium on Biomass/Wastes Energy and Environment

Location: Tianjin, China

The 2nd Symposium on Biomass/Wastes Energy and Environment (BEE 2019) will be held in Tianjin, China, on May 23-26, 2019. The symposium will be hosted by Tianjin University, which is the first modern-style University in China, established in 1895 initially named "Peiyang University".

BioEnergy is foreseen to play an important role in near-future energy picture in particular for oil and gas market. However, major disputes, such as food supply security, environmental and ecological uncertainties and associated biodiversity, are arising and spreading among politicians and the public. These disputes may significantly hinder BioEnergy development in the dimension of technical and policy aspects.

This Symposium aims to provide an open platform for sharing information related to updated development of BioEnergy technologies and policy as well as associated environmental concerns, so as to promote interactions among academics, government and the industries.


  1. Biomass/Wastes feedstocks and characterization

  2. Biomass/wastes to energy technologies: 1. bio-gas 2. bio-oils 3.bio-power 4.bio-diesel
    5.bio-hydrogen 6.bio-fuels 7. bio-char/bio-fertilizer

  3. Modelling and simulation

  4. Environmental issues related to Energy production and its application

  5. Economic, environmental, ecological assessment, and Policy making

State-City Collaboration on Clean Energy Transformations

State-City Collaboration on Clean Energy Transformations

Location: Vancouver, Canada

Globally, cities are responsible for 75 per cent of energy consumption and an equivalent share of greenhouse gas emissions. A growing number of international bodies—including the IPCC, IEA, OECD and the Global Commission on Climate and Economy—have recognized not only the pivotal role of cities, but underscored the need for stronger collaborative governance. To successfully enable the clean energy transition, shared policy frameworks between local and senior levels of government are necessary.

The Clean Energy Ministerial, taking place May 27–29, 2019, will attract energy ministers, policy-makers and sectoral leaders from the world’s largest economies to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. With this global expertise gathered in Vancouver, there is a unique opportunity to deepen knowledge on the critical role of local governments and their relationships with senior governments in accelerating the clean energy transition.

Building on international precedents, Renewable Cities will facilitate a deep dive into practical senior-local government collaboration and provide a venue to transcend traditional silos through facilitated dialogue. Over the 1.5-days, this conference will convene plenaries and breakout sessions with an emphasis on expert and peer learning.

The 7th International Conference on Biorefinery (ICB2019)

The 7th International Conference on Biorefinery (ICB2019)

We are pleased to announce the upcoming ICB2019 conference to beheld on August 18-21, 2019 in Johannesburg, South Africa. It will again offer a scientific and technical conference program that provides an opportunity for industry, research, political and financing stakeholders and experts around the world to gather and share insights into recent R&D activities and new developments in biorefinery technology with focus on development, marketing and commercialization. Biorefinery is to transform biomass and green wastes to valuable products including heat, power, liquid and gaseous fuels, and chemicals. With the conference we hope to provide a platform for international researchers, investors, and decision makers to meet and exchange the latest research and development in the field, to establish new connections and reinforce existed collaborations, and hopefully to inspire more innovative ideas!

ICB2019 will build on the successes of past events and promises to be even more insightful and rewarding. We look forward to meeting you there!
