International conference on Lignocellulosic Ethanol

From Demonstration to Market Deployment

13-15 October 2010, Copenhagen

Organised by the European Commission in collaboration with the US Department of Energy. Facilitated by Dong Energy.

The Directorate General for Energy of the European Commission is organising this conference in close collaboration with the Department of Energy of the United States in view of facilitating the global market deployment of lignocellulosic ethanol technologies. Dong Energy has been assisting with the organisational aspects and has offered a visit to the Inbicon facility at Kalundborg.

The Conference will address all critical issues related to lignocellulosic ethanol in sessions structured on pretreatment, enzymes and yeasts, large scale demonstration plants, economics, environmental issues, and ethanol related biorefineries. The Conference aims to present results and progress towards market deployment, therefore preference will be given to presentations related to these topics and not to research related subjects.
