From waste to transport fuel, a two-day event to be held in Loughborough


London, 11 May 2009 - Cenex, the UK's Centre of Excellence in Low Carbon and Fuel Cell Technologies, will host a two-day conference on biomethane between the 3-4th June 2009 at Loughborough University's Holywell Park. The conference, sponsored by Chesterfield BioGas and Greenlane Biogas, will showcase expertise covering the production of biomethane from organic waste, management of transport fleets and insights into the UK national biogas market.

The UK National Biomethane Conference is an opportunity for professionals to network with key contacts involved in the production and use of biomethane and enhance their knowledge on how biomethane offers a unique opportunity to integrate waste management solutions with the production of a clean burning, low carbon transport fuel.

Highlights of the event programme include a keynote address from Labour MP Alan Simpson, who, as a previous recipient of the "Environmental Politician of the Year" award, is recognised as a leading campaigner for green issues. The programme also includes presentations by the Biomethane for Transport Working Group plus biogas vehicle manufacturers and fleet operators on the UK potential for transport applications of biomethane.

The event will consist of a conference, workshops, exhibitions (both indoor and outdoor) and an event dinner with evening entertainment. Holywell Park's extensive indoor and outdoor exhibition areas will provide industry stakeholders with ideal presentation opportunities, and key issues of the conference will be explored further in workshops held on both days. Conference delegates will also receive copies of the latest UK Biomethane Toolkit - an industry resource to enable the analysis and development of biomethane schemes in the UK.
