Bioenergy International Asia expo & conference – Call for papers

Submit your presentation abstract now for the upcoming
Bioenergy International Asia expo & conference in Kuala Lumpur on 10-11th November.

After last year’s successful show in Singapore the event, organised by Biofuels International magazine, is moving to Malaysia with the theme: improving profitability in biofuels production.

The potential for biodiesel production across Asia is enormous. As well as Malaysia and Indonesia being the two largest palm oil-producing countries, the conditions are also suitable for other feedstocks such as jatropha and biomass.

But despite this Asia’s biodiesel manufacturers are finding profits elusive in a market characterised by poor demand, rapidly rising feedstocks and reduced trading routes to the US.

Supplies of biodiesel appear to have outstripped demand in many countries and many of the new plants that have come online and now lying idling or not operating at full capacity.

Total biodiesel mandates in Asia would amount to 1.7 million tonnes but due to poor implementation in Malaysia, as well as Indonesia, mandates are achieving only 500,000 tonnes – less than 10% of biodiesel capacity in Asia.

This conference will bring together producers, regulators from Asia and Europe, traders, technology providers, sustainability experts and oil majors to discuss how to turn the market around.
