Session 15 - 18th International Conference on renewable Mobility

At the digital edition of the Conference for Renewable Mobility “Fuels of the Future"” from 18th to 22nd January 2021, one session will focus on current issues and future prospects concerning international biofuel trading. As an admixture to petrol or as an unblended fuel, bioethanol is the most widely used biofuel worldwide. Biodiesel and its feedstocks are also traded globally. On the last day of the conference, the global biofuel trade will therefore take centre stage in a session with experts and analysts from international companies. Topics explored will include global ethanol markets. The future market potential of biofuels from waste and the impact of the European Green Deal on biofuel markets in Europe will also be presented and discussed.

Session 11: Biofuels in Shipping – An Alternative for Climate Change Mitigation

Heavy fuel oil is still the decisive energy source powering international shipping. Its disadvantages as one of the main causes of air pollution in ports and a source of greenhouse gas emissions put pressure on shipping companies and ship operators to develop sustainable alternative fuels with low pollutant levels and low greenhouse gas emissions. There has essentially been pressure to act on this front since the adoption of the Kyoto Protocol in 1997. You could say that there is a very long braking distance when it comes to climate change mitigation, as is also the case when ships are sailing. Many alternatives have nevertheless been discussed in recent years. Which of these alternatives might have a chance of a broad-based market launch today and which sustainable feedstocks could meet demand for the requisite volumes? Those are the topics that will be addressed in the presentations in the “Biofuels in Shipping” session at the 18th International Conference, which will be held as a digital event from 18th to 22nd January 2021.

Session 12 + 13 - 18th International Congress for Renewable Mobility "Fuels of the Future 2021" 18.-22.-01.2021

Sustainability and climate protection are also the decisive benchmarks for the future in aviation, just as they are in other sectors. Increasing efficiency and reducing consumption have been priorities for the major airlines for years. Much has been achieved in recent years: while aviation transport volumes have increased worldwide, kerosine consumption has risen by only three percent. However, in the light of forecast growth, efficiency alone will not be enough to achieve a sustainable reduction in CO2 emissions from air transport. Airlines therefore intend to make growing air traffic levels sustainable by using alternative fuels. To achieve this, increasing shares of renewable kerosene are essential. That is because new forms of propulsion, such as electric or hydrogen drives, cannot be expected to be operational in air transport in the coming years, in contrast to other modes of transport. Within the framework of the digital “Fuels of the Future” conference, various presentations will discuss which feedstocks can be used to produce sustainable fuels for air transport and what form concepts for the approval and fuel design of sustainable aviation fuels will take.
