The Inbicon team is present and active in the current World Bio Markets conference in Amsterdam, which will be running until 17 March. It is an important event, not just in Europe, but with attendance from many parts of the world. Director of Inbicon Benny Mai also attends the conference and presents a current case that Inbicon is involved with in Denmark; the Maabjerg Energy Concept (link). He gives an overview of the site and how Inbicon would fit with the vision of building visionary sustainable bio-concept.
However, for this – and other projects in Europe - to become a reality, there is a need of establishing mandatory blending mandates for the advanced bioethanol industry to take-off. Benny Mai together with CEO of Inbicon Henrik Maimann, gave an interview in the Biofuels International magazine in the mid of February addressing these concerns. Maimann explained: "In the long run we expect 2G bioethanol to be fully competitive with 1G ethanol but we need to have the industry moving to obtain this learning curve".
Later in February the European Parliament's Environment Committee (ENVI) have adopted a draft law for a binding target of 1.25% target for advanced biofuel. If implemented the advanced bioethanol industry will have a positive outlook to contribute in lowering greenhouse gas emissions in Europe.
