Opening, parallel forums and exhibition will take place for the first time in the CityCube.
The Polish biofuels industry will participate in the specialist conference “Fuels of the Future”, which will be held from 19-20 January 2015 in Berlin, for the first time and will be actively involved in the diverse programme.
In the agreement with the organisers of the specialist conference, Adam Stępień, Chief Executive Officer of the Polish Chamber of Biofuels (Krajowa Izba Biopaliw), highlighted the importance of this involvement for businesses and experts in the biofuels industry in Poland:
“Krajowa Izba Biopaliw is pleased that the international specialist conference for biofuels has selected a partner country for the first time. We will use the invitation extended to us to have representatives of our organisation, the Ministry of Economy as well as businesses inform the specialists attending the conference about our services and capabilities. Poland, too, produces certified sustainable biofuels. In 2013, the certification authorities in Europe identified more than 500 companies in Poland, the largest increase compared with other EU member states.”
More than 500 participants from roughly 30 countries are expected at the conference, and more than 20 companies will show presentations at the accompanying exhibition. Zygmunt Gzyra, Chairman of the Board of the Polish Chamber of Biofuels, will participate in the panel discussion on “EU fuel policies and decarbonisation of transportation”. In addition, Dawid Berny, Executive Director for Biofuels at the Rafineria Trzebinia S.A., and Dr. Lech Kempczyński, Executive Director of the Polish Association of Oil Producers, will report on current developments in their industries.
