A great number of high profile papers have been submitted for the 17th European Biomass Conference and Exhibition, to be held in Hamburg, Germany. Nearly 900 papers received this year, from as many as 68 countries, have highlighted once again the interest for this international platform for the Biomass community. A worldwide appointment of highly professional experts contributes to the authentication of the EBCE's status as the leading Biomass event for a specialist audience. A great knowledge exchange opportunity!

Giovanni Federigo De Santi, Director of the Institute for Energy (IE), JRC - European Commission says: "June 2009 will be a good time to review the developments at all levels, including policy, markets, industry, technology, research and education. We expect the results of this 17th European Biomass Conference & Exhibition to help us to support technically the definition of the European Union's specific targets for Renewable Energy for 2020 and the implementation of the corresponding actions. I am convinced the Conference Programme will provide new data and information on biomass resources, biomass conversion, market development and bioenergy policies. I expect this meeting to be also an opportunity to discuss the status and challenges of National and Regional Biomass Action Plans, biofuels as well as the role of bioenergy in initiatives such as the European Strategic Energy Technologies Plan - SET Plan."

The international Scientific Committee, composed of more then 100 experts, has been evaluating the submitted papers and is now preparing a rich and high level Conference Programme.

The event is supported by the European Commission, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) - Natural Science Sector, the World Council for Renewable Energy (WCRE), the European Biomass Industry Association (EUBIA), the Sustainable Energy Europe (SEE) Campaign, the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW) and further organisations.
