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.

"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.

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.
