Denmark hosts the EUBCE 2018 - 26th European Biomass Conference and Exhibition, from 14 to 18 May 2018
Biomass utilisation for multitude of products continues to grow in the rapidly developing bioeconomy. This growth brings many new challenges with the scaling up of existing technologies and the emergence of new ones that benefit from new innovations. Biomass provides a vital source of renewable energy, fuels, chemicals and materials for replacing fossil fuels that are responsible for a large part of the climate change we are already experiencing. In Stockholm at the 25th EUBCE the key question of "the indispensable role of biomass" was at the centre of key political, industrial and scientific discussions during opening, throughout the conference, and closing the conference.
We now look forward to the 26th EUBCE in 2018 in Denmark and to the many vibrant topics that will be included in the agenda. The core of the traditional EUBCE conference will be held over 4 days. There will however be an extension to the core conference and exhibition in order to showcase the many achievements in the field of full scale biomass utilisation in Denmark that are an integral and major part of the country becoming fossil-free by 2050. Members of the national organising committee will organise special technical visits to sites in the centre of the country where biomass is the key renewable feedstock into processes producing renewable energy, biofuels, biochemicals and biomaterials as well as integrating bioproducts into traditional established fossil-based systems.
We hope that you will take advantage not only of the well established annual EUBCE event in 2018, but also of the added opportunity to get close to the fruits of well designed polices and the deployment of scaled up biomass utilisation technologies in Denmark in May 2018.
Copenhagen is world renowned for its green and liveable characteristics. In recent years the city has become a leader in climate adaptation and mitigation, receiving the European Green Capital award in 2014, the Climate Leadership Prize in 2013 and toping the Global Green Economy Index the previous two years.
Copenhagen has the ambition of becoming the first carbon neutral capital by 2025. The goal is supported by the CPH 2025 Climate Plan, which the City Council adopted in 2009. A midterm goal was to reduce carbon emissions by 20% by 2015, which is a goal Copenhagen met already in 2011. Since 1995, Copenhagen has reduced carbon emissions by 50 percent. The CPH 2025 Climate Plan is a holistic plan as well as a collection of specific goals and initiatives within four areas – energy consumption, energy production, green mobility and the City Administration.

Beyond Copenhagen, the Danish nation has set itself the long term goal of 100% renewable energy supply by 2050. Creating a green and sustainable society is one of the key goals for Denmark. More than 20 per cent of Denmark`s energy already comes from renewable energy, and the goal is to reach 100 per cent by 2050. Much of the renewable energy comes from wind turbines, where Denmark is a world leader when it comes to developing new technology. The Danish cycling culture is another example of a green and sustainable society and Copenhagen alone has around 400 km of cycle paths, and about 40 per cent of the capital`s population commute to work by bicycle.
