Review - Fuels Of The Future 2023
During the two days of the 20th Conference on Renewable Mobility, everything revolved around new trends and potential uses of renewable fuels. Over 700 participants from 33 countries accepted the invitation from the five German biofuel industry associations to find out more about the transport transition options and low-CO₂ mobility at the two-day international conference “Fuels of the Future”.
The conference participants agree: Alternative drive options, such as biodiesel, bioethanol and biomethane, are in great demand. The challenge of mitigating climate change means e-fuels produced from wind, solar and bioenergy will also play a major role in transport-sector measures to protect the climate. As the Chair of the German Bioenergy Association (BBE), Artur Auernhammer, noted at the start of the conference, sustainable biofuels saved over 11 million tonnes of CO₂ in 2021. He emphasised that sustainable certified biofuels make a vital contribution to efficient, immediately impactful climate change mitigation in the transport sector and will continue to do so in future. With an eye to positions adopted by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, the BBE Chair underlined that a comprehensive strategy for alternative fuels and drives is now crucial.
The associations who organised the conference would like to thank all partners and participants for the successful conference and gripping discussions. The 21st International Conference on Renewable Mobility “Fuels of the Future 2024” is planned as an in-person event on 22nd and 23rd January 2024 in Berlin.
