CIB21 attendees will have the opportunity to listen to the analysis of the main national and European agents on the transposition of the REDII directive and how it affects each of the members of the bioenergy value chain. Also, they will be able to introduce themselves in the application of the latest technologies such as IoT and artificial intelligence in bioenergy projects and will learn about the latest developments in the use of agrobiomass in Europe and the innovations adopted for industrial heat generation in projects already underway.

Throughout two specific sessions, the speakers will share the keys to the renewable gas market and technologies and the latest research and innovations related to the use of biogas and biomethane for energy uses.

In parallel, the CIB will present the situation of the implementation of biomass and bioenergy in Latin America, as well as the results of the latest research carried out to evaluate the available resources and the models that optimize their use. In these sessions dedicated to Latin America, the latest technologies available for the sector will be shown.

The CIB 2021 is organized by AVEBIOM and by CYTED, the Ibero-American Program of Science and Technology for Development, and has the collaboration of AEBIG, AgroBioHeat, the Bioenergy Cluster of Catalonia, the Digital Innovation Hub Industry 4.0, SURE, ENplus® , Bioconservation, Engie, Naturgy, IDAE, Junta de Castilla y León and Valladolid City Council.
