The one-stop virtual conference for biogas solutions to the decarbonisation challenge

Supported by

 

Renewable gases, biomethane and bioLPG, have a critical role to play in mitigating climate change, through the decarbonisation of heat and transport sectors and supporting the development of sustainable farming and circular cities.

Biogases: Driving the transition from fossil to green

Keynote Speakers

Programme

Day 1: Wednesday 13th October 2021

  • Charlotte Morton, Chief Executive, World Biogas Association, UK
  • James Rockall, CEO and Managing Director, WLPGA, France
  • Keynote: Bram Graber, CEO, SHV Energy, Netherlands

This session delves into market size; sectors; near-, medium, and long-term impacts (carbon/SDGs); opportunity cost (preserving infrastructure); and ideal outcomes from COP26.

  • Nick Primmer, Policy and Market Analyst, ADBA, UK
  • Representative from industry (TBC)
  • Eric Johnson, Owner, Atlantic Consulting, Switzerland

Downstream users are under pressure to decarbonise. This session looks into the applications of two important gaseous fuels, considering sector and user requirements. Alongside different qualities of the gases.

  • Benoit Duee, Head of Sales and Development Department, Elengy, France
  • Representative from industry (TBC)
  • Kenneth Dahlqvist, Strategy & Sustainability Director, UGI International, Sweden
  • Cinch Munson, Vice President, Commercial Development, Oberon Fuels, USA

Day 2: Thursday 14th October 2021

  • Charlotte Morton, CEO, World Biogas Association, UK
  • James Rockall, CEO and Managing Director, WLPGA, France
  • Keynote: Keisuke Sadamori, Director Energy Market and Security, IEA

Both fuels use residues from other processes and wastes. To deliver the respective decarbonisation targets of WBA and WLPGA we need to identify where feedstocks come from. This session will consider the role of energy crops and the need to develop systems to recycle MSW (WLPGA) and organic wastes (WBA).

  • Bruce Dale, Professor, Chemical Engineering, Michigan State University, USA
  • Keith Simons, Principal Scientist – Sustainable Fuels at SHV Energy, UK
  • Industry representative (TBC)

What is the policy landscape, what is required to create an enabling environment? How do we get an effective price point for both gases? The California carbon intensity measure has made bio-gases very attractive. (Are we looking at the interim ahead of carbon pricing?) What are the potential threats?

  • Joy Alafia, President & CEO, Western Propane Gas Association, USA
  • Esther Busscher, President, Liquid Gas Europe
  • Representative from EU institutions (TBC)
  • Katie Kennedy Freeman, Senior Agriculture Economist, The World Bank

 

  • Moderator: Tej Gidda, VP and Global Leader Future Energy, GHD, Australia
  • Charlotte Morton, Chief Executive, World Biogas Association, UK
  • James Rockall, CEO and Managing Director, WLPGA, France
