Session 10 - 18th International Congress for Renewable Mobility "Fuels of the Future 2021" 18.-22.-01.2021
Session 10: Advanced Alternative Fuels – Technology Options and Investments Emerging innovations in new process technologies for production of low-greenhouse-gas alternative fuels have made considerable progress in recent years. The focus is not only on improving the efficiency of fuel production from agricultural and forestry residues, but also on deploying residues arising from cycle-optimised waste management. This increases the potential for substituting fossil fuels with the aim of decarbonising existing fleets, e.g. heavy goods vehicles, as soon as possible. In contrast to production plants for commercially available biofuels from cultivated biomass, for example rapeseed, which are linked to existing agricultural infrastructure, such as oil mills, these plants can be operated as stand-alone facilities. An appropriate structure for continuous supply of feedstocks must also be developed for these plants.

Session 7+14: BIOMETHANE AS A FUEL: GASEOUS, LIQUID AND SUSTAINABLE! BIOMETHANE IN THE INTERNATIONAL CONTEXT: LEGAL FRAMEWORK, INCENTIVES, SUCCESS STORIES
Biomethane’s importance in the transport sector as a versatile fuel is growing inexorably, primarily in view of its environmental advantages. Sales of biomethane in the mobility sector in 2019, for example, rose to 660 GWh, i.e. by around 70 percent compared with the previous year. Biogas producers have reacted rapidly to increased demand for biogenic CNG. In future, it will be possible to respond just as promptly to market demand for liquid biomethane – bio-LNG; the first liquefaction projects are already on the starting blocks.

Session 6: Biodiesel - Research Ensures Continuing Market Presence - 18th International Conference discusses the need for research
The impact of the combustion engine, the backbone of mobility, on the environment and climate must be mitigated. Emissions produced by these engines and the virtually unrestrained global use of fossil resources for mobility trigger international criticism in the light of climate change. In the European Union, biodiesel is the most important low-greenhouse-gas fuel for defossilisation of existing fleets through utilisation of existing infrastructure.

Session 5 - Bioethanol – Recognising and using its potential - 18th International Congress for Renewable Mobility "Fuels of the Future 2021" 18.-22.-01.2021
At the first digital “Fuels of the Future” conference on renewable mobility from 18th to 22nd January 2021, one session will focus on current issues and research results relating to bioethanol. As an admixture to petrol or as a pure fuel, bioethanol is the most widely used biofuel worldwide. On the second conference day, bioethanol will therefore be in the spotlight in a session with experts from the world of research and companies in the USA and Germany.
