Conclusion of the 18th Conference on Renewable Mobility
The 18th International Conference on Renewable Mobility, held for the first time in digital format, has ended successfully after 5 days on 22 of January. Speakers from the automotive industry, associations, science, politics showed the 560 participants a wide range of technologies and that with liquid low-carbon fuels, more climate protection in transport is possible. Participants noted as one key insight that, in a spirit of openness to technological options, all potential technologies, especially those available now, must be utilised when tackling the urgent challenges facing climate protection in the transport sector.
Experts at the conference were unanimous in emphasising that climate change mitigation, implementation of the energy transition in the transport sector and the associated complex transformation process constitute major challenges for society, not least when it comes to consumer acceptance. In coming years, this conference will continue to offer a central communication and discussion platform for all industry players to address the pressing issues involved in renewable mobility and effective climate protection in the transport sector.
SAVE THE DATE: The 19th International Conference on Renewable Mobility "Fuels of the Future 2022" will take place on 24 and 25 January 2022 in Berlin.
18th International Conference on Renewable Mobility "Fuels of the Future" on 18.to 22 January 2021 in Berlin
The 18th International Conference for Renewable Mobility "Fuels of the Future" will take place again from 18th to 22nd January 2021.
Fuels of the future 2021 welcomes national and international participants including representatives from the raw material collecting and processing industry, the biofuel, mineral oil and automotive industry, the chemical industry, the transport and logistics sector, certification systems as well as from politics, science and research.
The aim of the International Conference is to provide participants with an up-to-date status report on the many different legislative initiatives and to discuss corresponding recommendations for action, to present current market developments and project examples of renewable mobility, and to provide a broad platform for the exchange of experience.
Due to the current developments within COVID-19, the organisers have decided to convert the 18th round of the International Conference into a digital event format. The motto of the conference is: "Fuels of the Future" digital & internationally networked!
The conference "Fuels of the Future 2021" will take place as a 5-day event series in the period from 18th to 22nd January 2021. Each day of the event consists of three sessions. You can find further information under Programme. The digital congress will be held bilingually (German-English).
On the International Conference on Renewable Mobility offers the outstanding opportunity to introduce your company or organization to an international audience of experts and/or to present it via sponsoring. You will find details on this in the Presentation Options document.

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.

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.

"Fuels of the Future" 2021! - Reminder Early Bird Rate – 18th International Congress on Renewable Mobility
With more than 60 speakers and a total of 15 thematically different modular sessions, the next conference will offer a thematic diversity that shows practically all options for a step-by-step decarbonization of energy sources and energy carriers and thus the gradual transformation of drives towards climate neutrality. Practically every mode of transport as well as the different drive concepts, sustainable raw material sources for the generation of the required energy quantities will be considered in the conference program. This is a special unique selling point of this conference and shows also in its now 18 years of history the breadth in the development, which is finally the topic of the respective lectures.
