Biofuel Market and Technologies

The conference "Biofuel Markets and Technologies" will be held from May 18 to May 22, 2015, in Tel Aviv, Israel. Now is the right time for biofuels - this the major topic addressed by the conference, to be held at the time of increasing Middle East turmoil, close possibility of mililtary conflict with Iran, fragile situation in the Strait of Hormuz and oil prices looking up.

It's not about green sentiment, anymore. It is about national energy insecurity and being part of a huge emerging market of a kind that happens once in a century and promises vast riches beyond imagination. The global biofuel production is estimated to reach 1,900 Million barrel in 2020, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10% over the forecast period 2015 2020, says the market study Global Biofuel Production Forecast 2015 2020.

The conference will provide an overview of the state-of-the-art on biofuels used in ground and sea transportation, such as bioethanol, biodiesel, other biofuels and algal biofuels; it will also provide an overview of the more recent developments in utilization of biofuels in aviation, and specific issues and requirements for biofuels that are utilized in commercial and military applications. Documentary and measurement standards needed to facilitate trade and applications in new areas will be identified. Requirements that result from new regulations and applications in different parts of the globe will be discussed. Utilization of biofuels in developing economies will be reviewed, implications for sustainability will be discussed, and future trends that may lead to the need for new biofuels standards will be identified.

Biocorrosion Workshop

Biocorrosion Workshop will be co-hosted with the conference. Materials used to store and distribute alternate fuels have seen an increase in corrosion due to the unique conditions caused by the presence of microbes and the chemistry of biofuels and biofuel precursors.

Participants in the workshop will delve into the unique materials and chemical challenges that occur with manufacturing, transport, and storage of alternative fuels. Specific focuses will be:


It's not by chance that Israel has been selected as venue for the conference. Any advancement in biofuel research and production will drastically affect geopolitical balance of the Middle East. Israel is known for its scientific and technological ingenuity and its support for biofuel development.

The conference participants will enjoy staying in a beautiful and historically rich country like Israel with different touristic tours available each day of the conference and upon completion of the working program.
