Climate Neutrality 2050: In Three Sessions "Fit" for the Green Deal

How important is the European Green Deal for the transport sector? What role do renewable fuels play in the Commission's "Fit for 55" package? Speakers will give answers to these questions in three sessions on the first day of the 19th International Fuel Congress on January 24, 2022. A panel discussion will invite a lively exchange of ideas.

To achieve national and European climate targets, greenhouse gas emissions in the transport sector must be reduced. Sustainable biofuels have a key role to play. Biofuels also offer potential in combination with increasing shares of synthetic fuels. The role of the European Green Deal and the "Fit-for-55" package it contains for the mobility sector will be addressed by speakers from politics, science and industry on the first day of the Digital Congress "Fuels of the Future".

Artur Auernhammer, chairman of the board of the German Bioenergy Association (Bundesverband Bioenergie e.V. - BBE), will open the five-day digital congress on Monday, January 24, 2022. Representatives of the European Commission and the national and international automotive industry and fuel sector will explain the contribution of alternative fuels and their future use in transport in three thematic blocks.

The opening session of the congress will focus on the "Fit for 55" package and the contribution of renewable fuels to the achievement of European climate protection targets and will set the first cornerstones for understanding the European climate mitigation targets. In the second session, experts from industry, politics and associations will focus in a panel discussion, on the role of alternative fuels for the internal combustion engine of the future. At the same time, future innovative drive strategies will be explained.

The final block of topics is devoted to the "Impact of European climate protection legislation on the transport sector" and examines the consequences of a possible emissions trading system for the economic viability and market ramp-up of electromobility and alternative fuels. This includes the question of how to pay for and finance climate-friendly mobility of tomorrow. An open chat for participants will provide the virtual space for an active exchange afterwards.

The 19th International Congress "Fuels of the Future" will take place digitally from January 24 to 28, 2022. All presentations and speakers can be found in the program booklet.
