WorldBiofuelsConfLogoIt’s never too early to start planning your 2010 conference schedule and here is one to consider: World Biofuels Markets. This is Europe’s largest biofuels conference and so far, 20 of the 50 companies who were named to Biofuels Digest’sTop 50 Hottest Companies in Bioenergy” will be participating.

Last year several hundred people were on hand and this year more even more are expected due to the recent policies passed in the U.S. including the announcement on Monday that the EPA has designated greenhouse gas pollution as a threat to society.

In part, the conference will consist of a series of focused sessions that cover topics from energy crops, to algae fuels, biofuels for aviation, policy, sustainability, biofuels from waste, and more. More than 200 people will be presenting during the conference. Keynote speakers include:

  • Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, former Prime Minister of Norway, former Head of the World Health Organisation
    Nobuo Tanaka, Executive Director, International Energy Agency
    Philip New, Chief Executive Officer, BP Biofuels
    Jan Ernst de Groot, Managing Director, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
    Suani Coelho, Executive Director, CENBIO, UN Advisory Group on Energy and Climate Change & IRENA
