Information about First Announcement and Call for papers will follow in the beginning of June.
Elmia and Svebio are offering an exclusive start to the world’s biggest international forestry fair.
Warm up before the fair with a Pre Fair Tour, airport transfer and study visit, all as part of one and the same bus trip straight from the airport. The tours focus on bioenergy and include visits to various bioenergy plants, the Swedish forest industry and CTL (cut-to-length) logging.
It is an achievement that has surpassed both the EU’s target of 49% by 2020 and the Swedish parliament adopted target of 50 percent in 2020.The seeds to this success can be traced back to the establishment of the official Oil Commission in 2005, which was charged with reducing Sweden’s dependence on oil.
The World Bioenergy Association launches the fact sheet: Biofuels for Transport - the renewable alternative - More biofuels needed in the transport sector.
This is the fourth publication as part of a series of documents intended to be utilized by the media and industry as verifiable, easily referenced sources addressing global Bioenergy usage and potential.
Last year 51 percent of Sweden’s energy supply was from renewable energy sources. Sweden has reached the renewable energy target set in the Renewable Energy Directive (RED) eight years ahead of time. The EU target for Sweden is 49 percent in 2020 and the Swedish parliament has adopted a target of 50 percent in 2020.
The Pre Fair Tour packages 4th June includes all transfers from respective airport, Arlanda and Kastrup, to Jönköping, field and study visits during the trip, lunch and coffee, a get-together event at arrival in Jönköping and multiple-day entrance to the fair Elmia Wood 2013, including bus transfers.

The Conference is arranged by The Norwegian Bioenergy association (Nobio) in co-operation with our sister-organizations in the Nordic and Baltic countries as well Nordic Council of Ministers. In 2011 the conference was arranged by Bioenergia in Jyväskylä. This year the conference is hosted by Nobio in Oslo.
– The transfer process of Bioenergy International is now complete, remarks Lennart Ljungblom on his way through the door as he leaves the Swedish Bioenergy Association, Svebio, just under two years after the association acquired the publication Bioenergy International from his company Bioenergi Förlag, in 2011.
Nordic Baltic Bioenergy 2013 will take place at Radisson Blu Hotel in downtown Oslo, Norway, Tuesday 21st – Wednesday 22nd May 2013.
Nordic Baltic Bioenergy 2013 will have a political and business orientated perspective on the Nordic and Baltic bioenergy market. Is it natural to look at the Nordic Baltic bioenergy market as one? What does this market look like from an EU/continental point of view? Is it an advanced market and if it is, will it stay ahead?
It is time to register for Sweden’s national Pellet Conference, organised in the beautiful town of Falun, Sweden, 29-30 January. The conference gathers producers, decisionmakers, energy companies, equipment producers, associations scientists and others. Last year we gathered more than 200 participants! The conference language is Swedish but interpretation to English is available.
From the program:
The third WBA's fact sheet "Carbon neutrality of sustainable biomass from forests" has been launched during COP18 UN Climate Change Conference, Doha.
Biomass from sustainable forestry is carbon neutral and will play an important role in the future energy system! Read more.
On November 14, WBA launched another fact sheet, this time on Biomass Combined Heat & Power. This second fact sheet concerns the application of combined heat and power (CHP) technology in connection to district or industrial heating / cooling systems. Read more.
COP18: Kjell Andersson, Policy Advisor at the World Bioenergy Association, argues that bioenergy and carbon taxes are a key part of our solution to climate change.
Andersson explains that bioenergy is the leading fuel in Sweden and should be better rolled out internationally.
Andersson advocates the implementation of a global carbon tax. He asserts that polluters should pay the cost of the negative impact of fossil fuels and this is a good way of doing that.
World Bioenergy Association will present a fact sheet on Carbon neutrality of biomass from forest at a press conference at COP 18 today.
Dr Heinz Kopetz, president of World Bioenergy Association, will hold the press conference.
Time: 4 December 2012, 14.30 – 15.00
Place: Press Conference 2 - Auditorium 1
Kjell Andersson, Policy Expert at the Swedish Bioenergy Association, will participate as a speaker at the Side event Towards 100% Renewables -
Case Studies and Examples from Regions and Municipalities at COP 18.
The event is organised by the Ren Alliance and it takes place on Tuesday 4 December, 11:30 – 13:00.
– The World Bioenergy Association would like to draw the attention of the public and the policy makers to the interesting opportunities that small-scale biomass heating systems can offer today. An active policy to speed up the replacement of fossil driven heating systems by renewable heat such as biomass, would not only decrease the dependency from oil and gas imports but will also create many regional jobs, whilst simultaneously reducing consumer expenditure and ultimately lead to further reductions in CO2 emissions, says WBA´s President, Dr Heinz Kopetz.
