Bioethanol and biomethane as sustainable fuel blends

Renewable raw materials of biological origin can be used as a climate-friendly energy source for engines. The potential offered by bioethanol and biomethane will be explained by experts from industry and science on two days of the “Fuels of the Future" conference.

Climate-friendly fuel for internal combustion engines: Diesel and gasoline can be produced not only from crude oil, but also from energy crops. Bioethanol is an important renewable fuel in Germany. Biomethane is also a low-emission alternative to fossil fuels. Experts will discuss online at the 19th International Fuel Congress in the relevant sessions on January 26 and 28, 2022, which framework conditions apply in Germany and Europe for both biofuels and what the future application possibilities look like.

Bioethanol can be used as a biofuel instead of gasoline in gasoline engines as pure ethanol, fuel blends or with other alcohols such as methanol. The session "Bioethanol - Identifying and exploiting potential" will discuss the new potential applications for the alternative fuel derived from fermented sugar in the future and the material compatibility of gasoline engines. The thematic block will start at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, January 26, 2022.

Biomethane comes from biogas plants in which organic materials are fermented. In the thematic block "Biomethane international", scientists and stakeholders from the field will discuss the current international state of the art and economic framework conditions for the use of bio-LNG and -CNG based on examples from Western, Northern and Eastern Europe. Potential needs for action and development will also be addressed. The session will immediately follow the bioethanol session on Wednesday, January 26, at 11:30 a.m.

How the technological and economic aspects of bio-LNG production in Germany look like and which innovative process chains are under development will be explained by industry experts in the session "Biomethane as Fuel" on Friday, January 28. The thematic block will start at 11:30 a.m.

All three sessions will each consist of four presentations. Interested parties can obtain discounted tickets worth 570 euros until November 30, 2021. Students can purchase tickets for 70 euros. The international congress will be held online from January 24 to 28. The complete program, registration options and information on the speakers are available at
