IEA Bioenergy ExCo Workshop - Technology advances in liquid biofuels and renewable gas

17. October 2022
TUtheSky, Getreidemarkt 9, 1060 Vienna, AT

In conjunction with the IEA Bioenergy ExCo 90 Meeting international and national experts will gather to explore the advances being made in biofuels technologies, as well as technologies to produce renewable gas (biomass based), and will discuss what is needed to accelerate their roll out to the market.


IEA Bioenergy TCP, and hosted by Federal Ministry of Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology and organised by BEST - Bioenergy and Sustainable Technologies GmbH

Content Description

Both the accelerating climate change as well as the energy crisis related to the war in Ukraine, call for urgent action to move away from fossil fuels such as oil and gas. Energy savings and renewable energy are the key tools to achieve that. Renewable transport fuels and renewable gases will need to have an increasing role in the transport system and the gas distribution system

A strong growth in so-called ‘advanced technologies’ will be required, starting from a variety of feedstocks, particularly underutilised heterogeneous biomass resources. Meanwhile, increasing prices for oil and gas have totally changed the picture and prospects of renewable fuels compared to one or two years ago.

Aim of the workshop:

  • Get an insight of developments that can be expected for liquid biofuels and renewable gases
  • Discuss what is needed to accelerate their deployment


The workshop will contain three parts:

  • the first session will consider advances in renewable gas / biomethane,
  • the second liquid biofuels, and
  • the third session will go into concrete developments in Austria.

A more detailed programme will follow.

Participant Information

Participation to the workshop is free of charge, but pre-registration is required. A registration link will be available from end of August.

There is room for around 100 participants in Vienna. The workshop will be hybrid, so online participation will also be possible.
