Presentation of Parallel Session 5A-D

27 November 2023

Biofuels in fuel research, biomethane as a fuel, biofuels in shipping and the production of biofuels from waste and residual materials are important fields for future-proof mobility. These topics will be addressed in the parallel sessions of Session 5. On Tuesday, January 23, the second day of the 21st International Conference "Fuels of the Future", four parallel sessions from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. will deal with issues relating to research and the use of various alternative fuels. Representatives from research, industry and the ministries will have their say, as will the participants, for whom there will of course be opportunities for questions and discussions.

Session 5A will provide an overview of the current status of fuel research. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Frank Atzler from the University of Dresden, Prof. Dr. Markus Jakob from the Coburg University of Applied Sciences, Dr. Martin Müller from Cirkel Beratungsgesellschaft mbH and Sebastian Feldhoff from OWI Science for Fuels gGmbH will talk about progress, the current state of research and innovation potential.

In Session 5B, Hendrik Etzold from Deutsches Biomasseforschungszentrum gGmbH, Simon Detscher from revis bioenergy GmbH, Alexey Mozgovoy from Hitachi Zosen Inova BioMethan GmbH, Jörg Fischer from EnviTec Biogas AG and Zoltan Elek from Landwärme GmbH will address issues such as GHG quotas as a driver for renewable methane, the role of biofuels in the transport transition, Legislative Breakthroughs for International Biomethane Trade and possible market diversification for biogas plants under the heading "Biomethane as a fuel".

In Session 5C, which is all about biofuels and renewable fuels in shipping, Andrea Wehinger from the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfram Gottschalk from IAV GmbH, Dr. Max Kofod from Shell Global Solutions GmbH and Benjamin Weinacht from CMB Germany GmbH & Co. KG will speak on topics such as the decarbonization of LNG and the use of biofuels in a maritime four-stroke generator engine and provide an outlook on the EU legislative initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in maritime transport.

Session 5D deals with the production of biofuels from waste and residual materials. Here you can expect presentations by Dáša Mamrillová from the European Waste-based & Advanced Biofuels Association - EWABA, Hubert Zenk from Jeder Tropfen Zählt GmbH, Manja Ostertag from Bunker Holding A/S and Daria Kochetkova from SGS INSPIRE, SGS Germany GmbH. The presentations will cover topics such as the availability of raw materials in light of the revision of Annex IX of the RED, waste-based biofuels for the maritime industry and hydrotreated vegetable oil as a substitute for diesel.
