Welcome Message - Biofuels 2016

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Conference Series LLC Conferences and the Organizing Committee of the 2nd International Congress and Expo on Biofuels & Bioenergy 2016 - a warm welcome to Sao Paulo!

The decision to select Brazil as the host for this conference was not a difficult one. Brazil has the world's first sustainable biofuels economy. With 6.19 billion gallons produced in 2014, representing over 25% of the world's ethanol fuel, Brazil ranks second in the world only next to the U.S. Brazil’s 40-year-old ethanol fuel program is based on the most efficient agricultural technology for sugarcane utilization in the world that uses modern equipment to process the feedstock to ethanol and the residue to heat and power at a high overall energy balance. Despite the recent economic crisis and supply shortage, the Brazilian sugarcane ethanol has been recognized as "the most successful alternative fuel” to date and as “advanced biofuel” due to its 61% reduction of total life cycle greenhouse gas emissions. As a global biofuel industry leader, Brazil is a policy model for other biofuels-producing countries. In a world with a massive and growing demand for electricity, heat energy and transportation fuels, Brazil is the source of many of the significant innovations needed in the race against time to make biofuels and bioenergy both cost-competitive and environmentally-friendly technologies.  

With 10 tracks and 42 sessions, Biofuels-2016 aims to stimulate fruitful discussions in a wide range of topics in all the biofuel-related areas including but not limited to algal biofuels, aviation fuels, biodiesel, bioenergy, bioethanol, biogas, biomass, biorefineries, bioresource technologies associated with conversion or production platforms of biofuels and the associated “food vs fuel” debate. The conference will provide a platform to critically review our recent progress, design innovative strategies for future advancements, and exchange multidisciplinary information and experience acquired at all levels of biofuels research and development – from a lab to commercialization scale. As we network with our international delegates and industry partners, opportunities will arise to accelerate scientific discovery and help promote, advance and disseminate new knowledge in all aspects of biofuels and bioenergy.

Biofuels-2016 is a must for anyone with vested interests in the global aspects of biofuels and bioenergy across a suite of science and engineering disciplines such as biology, biotechnology and microbiology, chemistry and biochemistry, chemical and environmental engineering. I would sincerely like to encourage the attendance and active participation in our brainstorming sessions of a wide audience of students, academic and industry researchers, government and business leaders, decision and policy makers, entrepreneurs, consultants and other professionals from biofuels-related profit and non-profit organizations.

Although we come from diverse backgrounds, we all share a common vision for the transformation of our society to a global Bioeconomy that is based on responsible exploitation of our renewable resources and sustainable energy production.

I look forward to a very productive and successful meeting!

Conference Series LLC invites you to attend the 2nd International Congress and Expo on Biofuels & Bioenergy which will be held on August 29-31, 2016 at Sao Paulo, Brazil. The theme of the conference is “Accelerating Advancements in the Field of Biofuels & Bioenergy

Conference Series LLC organizes a conference series of 3000+ Global Events with over 600+ Conferences, 1200+ Symposiums and 1200+ Workshops in USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 30000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members.

Track 1: Algae Biofuels

Algal biofuel and Microbial Biofuels are an alternative to liquid fossil fuels that uses algae as its source of energy-rich oils. Several Biofuels America, Biofuels Brazil companies and government agencies are funding efforts to reduce capital and operating costs and make algae fuel production commercially viable. Like fossil fuel, algae fuel releases CO2 when burnt, but unlike fossil fuel, algae fuel and other biofuels only release CO2 recently removed from the atmosphere via photosynthesis as the algae or plant grew.  With current technology available it is estimated that the cost of producing microalgal biomass is $2.95/kg for photobioreactors and $3.80/kg for open-ponds. These estimates assume that carbon dioxide is available at no cost. If the annual biomass production capacity is increased to 10000 tonnes, the cost of production per kilogram reduces to roughly $0.47 and $0.60, respectively. Assuming that the biomass contains 30% oil by weight, the cost of biomass for providing a liter of oil would be approximately $1.40 and $1.81 for photobioreactors and raceways, respectively. Oil recovered from the lower cost biomass produced in photo bioreactors is estimated to cost $2.80/L, assuming the recovery process contributes 50% to the cost of the final recovered oil. Numerous Funding programs have been created with aims of promoting the use of Renewable Energy. In Canada, the eco Agriculture biofuels capital initiative (eco ABC) provides $25 million per project to assist farmers in constructing and expanding a renewable fuel production facility. In Europe, the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) is the main instrument for funding research. Similarly, the NER 300 is an unofficial, independent portal dedicated to renewable energy and grid integration projects. Biofuels 2016 is the best platform to lean advanced research in the field of Biofuels and Bio energy.

Track 2: Biogas

Biogas typically refers to a mixture of different gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. Biogas can be produced from raw materials such as agricultural waste, manure, municipal waste, plant material, sewage, green waste or food waste. It is a renewable energy source and in many cases exerts a very small carbon footprint. Biogas can be produced by anaerobic digestion with anaerobic bacteria, which digest material inside a closed system, or fermentation of materials by biodegradation. Biogas is primarily methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) and may have small amounts of hydrogen sulphide (H2S), moisture and siloxanes. Biogas is produced as landfill gas (LFG), which is produced by the breakdown of biodegradable waste inside a landfill due to chemical reactions and microbes, or as digested gas, produced inside an anaerobic digester. By converting cow manure into methane biogas via anaerobic digestion, the millions of cattle in the United States would be able to produce 100 billion kilowatt hours of electricity, enough to power millions of homes across the United States. In fact, one cow can produce enough manure in one day to generate 3 kilowatt hours of electricity; the dangers of biogas are mostly similar to those of natural gas, but with an additional risk from the toxicity of its hydrogen sulfide fraction. Biogas can be explosive when mixed one part biogas to 8-20 parts air. Current research and advanced research techniques will be discussed at biofuels conference. Biofuels conference or Biomass conferences are going to be discuss advanced research techniques on Biogas.

Track 3: Biodiesel

Biodiesel is a form of diesel fuel manufactured from vegetable oils, animal fats, or recycled restaurant greases. It is safe, biodegradable, and produces less air pollutants than petroleum-based diesel. Biodiesel is meant to be used in standard diesel engines and is thus distinct from the vegetable and waste oils used to fuel converted diesel engines. Biodiesel can be used Biodiesel can be used in pure form, or blended with petro diesel in any proportions. Hydrogen and Biodiesel blends can also be used as heating oil.  It also can be obtained from Pongamia, field pennycress and jatropha and other crops such as mustard, jojoba, flax, sunflower, palm oil, coconut and hemp. Multiple economic studies have been performed regarding the economic impact of biodiesel production. One study, commissioned by the National Biodiesel Board, reported the 2011 production of biodiesel supported 39,027 jobs and more than $2.1 billion in household income. Many countries around the world are involved in the growing use and production of biofuels, such as biodiesel, as an alternative energy source to fossil fuels and oil. The surge of interest in biodiesels has highlighted a number of Environmental Issues associated with its use. These potentially include reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, pollution and the rate of biodegradation. However, environmental organizations, for example, Rainforest Rescue and Greenpeace, criticize the cultivation of plants used for biodiesel production; they say the deforestation of rainforests exacerbates climate change and that sensitive ecosystems are destroyed to clear land for oil palm, soybean and sugar cane plantations. Moreover, that biofuels contribute to world hunger, seeing as arable land is no longer used for growing foods.

Track 4: Biomass

Biomass is biological material derived from living, or recently living organisms. It most often refers to plants or plant-based materials which are specifically called lignocellulosic biomass. As an energy source, biomass can either be used directly via combustion to produce heat, or indirectly after converting it to various forms of biofuel. Conversion of biomass to biofuel can be achieved by different methods which are broadly classified into: thermal, chemical, and biochemical engineering methods. Wood remains the largest biomass energy source to date examples include forest residues (such as dead trees, branches and tree stumps), yard clippings, wood chips and even municipal solid waste. In the second sense, biomass includes plant or animal matter that can be converted into fibers or other industrial chemicals, including biofuels. Industrial biomass can be grown from   numerous types of plants including miscanthus, switch grass, hemp, corn, poplar, willow, sorghum, sugarcane, bamboo, and a variety of tree species, ranging from eucalyptus to oil palm (palm oil). Biomass can be converted to other usable forms of energy like methane gas or transportation fuels like ethanol and biodiesel. There is research involving algal, or algae-derived, biomass due to the fact that it is a non-food resource and can be produced at rates five to ten times faster than other types of land-based agriculture, such as corn and soy. Using biomass as a fuel produces air pollution in the form of carbonmonoxide, carbon dioxide, NOx (nitrogen oxides), VOCs (volatile organic compounds), particulates and other pollutants at levels above those from traditional fuel sources such as coal or natural gas in some cases (such as with indoor heating and cooking) Utilization of wood biomass as a fuel can also produce fewer particulate and other pollutants than open burning as seen in wildfires or direct heat applications. Black carbon – a pollutant created by combustion of fossil fuels, biofuels, and biomass – is possibly the second largest contributor to global warming. biomass conference are the best platforms to learn new ideas and advanced researches in the Biomass production and research field.

Track 5: Biorefineries

A biorefinery is a facility that integrates biomass conversion processes and equipment to produce fuels, power, and chemicals from biomass. The biorefinery concept is analogous to today's petroleum refineries, which produce multiple fuels and products from petroleum. Industrial biorefineries have been identified as the most promising route to the creation of a new domestic biobased industry. By producing multiple products; a biorefinery can take advantage of the differences in biomass components and intermediates and maximize the value derived from the biomass feedstock. A biorefinery might, for example, produce one or several low-volume, but high-value, chemical products and a low-value, but high-volume liquid transportation fuel, while generating electricity and process heat for its own use and perhaps enough for sale of electricity. The high-value products enhance profitability, the high-volume fuel helps meet national energy needs, and the power production reduces costs and avoids greenhouse-gas emissions.

Track 6: Bioethanol

The principle fuel used as a petroleum substitute is bioethanol. Bioethanol is mainly produced by the sugar fermentation process, although it can also be produced by the chemical process of reacting ethylene with steam. The main source of sugar required to produce ethanol comes from fuel or energy crops. These fuel crops are normally grown specifically for energy use and include maize, corn and wheat crops, waste straw, willow, sawdust, reed canary grass, cord grasses, Jerusalem artichoke, Myscanthus and sorghum plants. There is also ongoing research and development into the use of municipal solid wastes to produce ethanol fuel. Brazil and the United States account for over 70 percent of all ethanol production in the world today with the USA producing an estimated 6,500 Million gallons a year. Bioethanol produces only carbon dioxide and water as the waster products on burning, and the carbon dioxide released during fermentation and combustion equals the amount removed from the atmosphere while the crop is growing This fuel is not suitable for use in all cars and you should check compatibility with your vehicle manufacturer before using it. If in doubt use the standard SP95 or SP98 Octane unleaded fuel which continues to be available alongside the new fuel. Researchers have recently launched a proposal to cultivate massive amounts of seaweed or algae. They laims that the project could occupy about ten thousand kilometers of seaweed farm and they estimated that the farm would be able to produce bioethanol from algae, as much as 20 million kiloliters or 5.3 billion gallons of bioethanol per year. Biofuels Europe companies are conducting more research on Bioethanol. You can lean advanced research techniques and research guide lines at biomass conference and also biofuels 2016 conference.

Track 7: Aviation Biofuels

Aviation biofuel is a biofuel used for aircraft. It is considered by some to be the primary means by which the aviation industry can reduce its carbon footprint. After a multi-year technical review from aircraft makers, engine manufacturers and oil companies, biofuels were approved for commercial use in July 2011. Since then, some airlines have experimented with using of biofuels on commercial flights. The focus of the industry has now turned to second generation sustainable biofuels that do not compete with food supplies. Drop-in" biofuels are biofuels that are completely interchangeable with conventional fuels. Deriving "drop-in" jet fuel from bio-based sources is ASTM approved via two routes. The first route involves using oil which is extracted from plant sources like Jatropha, algae, tallows, other waste oils, Babassu and camelina to produce bio-SPK (Bio derived synthetic paraffinic Kerosene) by cracking and hydro processing. The growing of algae to make jet fuel is a promising but still emerging technology. Companies working on algae jet fuel are Solazyme, Honeywell UOP, Solena, Sapphire Energy, Imperium Renewables, and Aqua flow Bionomic Corporation. The second route involves processing solid biomass using pyrolysis to produce pyrolysis oil or gasification to produce a syngas which is then processed into FT SPK (Fischer–Tropsch Synthetic Paraffinic Kerosene). The International Air Transport Association (IATA) supports research, development and deployment of alternative fuels. IATA thinks a 6% share of sustainable 2nd generation biofuels is achievable by 2020, and Boeing supports a target of 1% of global aviation fuels by 2015. This is in support of the goals of the aviation. biofuels brazil, biofuels 2016 conference are going to be discuss about advanced research on Aviation biofuels.

Track 8: Food V/S Fuels Debate

In some poor countries the rising price of vegetable oil is causing problems. Some propose that fuel only be made from non-edible vegetable oils such as Camelina, Jatropha or seashore mallow which can thrive on marginal agricultural land where many trees and crops will not grow, or would produce only low yields. Others argue that the problem is more fundamental. Farmers may switch from producing food crops to producing biofuel crops to make more money, even if the new crops are not edible. The law of supply and demand predicts that if fewer farmers are producing food the price of food will rise. It may take some time, as farmers can take some time to change which things they are growing, but increasing demand for first generation biofuels is likely to result in price increases for many kinds of food. Some have pointed out that there are poor farmers and poor countries that are making more money because of the higher price of vegetable oil. There is ongoing research into finding more suitable crops and improving oil yield. Other sources are possible including human fecal matter, with Ghana building its first "fecal sludge-fed biodiesel plant. A group of Spanish developers working for a company called Ecofasa announced a new biofuel made from trash. The fuel is created from general urban waste which is treated by bacteria to produce fatty acids, which can be used to make biodiesel. Another approach that does not require the use of chemical for the production, it involves the use of genetically modified microbes. Biofuels 2016 or Biofuels Brazil conferences are going to conduct a debate on Food V/S Fuels.

Theme: Accelerating Advancements in the Field of Biofuels & Bioenergy 

Summary

The demand for biofuels is growing enormously. From the evidence available today, we believe that biofuels could, with developments in technology and favorable policy constitute up to 30% of the world transport fuel mix by 2030. The advantages of biofuels – whether in greenhouse gas benefits, energy security or rural development-mean that many governments are keen to foster the industry through current phases of technology development to deliver material scale and reduced costs. The world is in a state of biofuels fever. In 2006 biofuel constituted 49 bnlitres,Or 3%, of the 1,600 billion litre market for gasoline and diesel fuel. By 2015 the biofuels market is likely to have tripled to 155 billion litres. In practical terms that is an increase of around 10 billion litres per year over ten years. In terms of current ethanol yields of 5,250ltrs / ha, this equates to an increase of land use for biofuels of approximately 17,000 square km per year. The bulk of the global demand for ethanol and biodiesel comes from a few major regions. The USA accounted for very nearly 50% of global ethanol consumption in 2006, with Brazil taking 36% of global volumes. The EU accounted for 75% of global biodiesel consumption in 2006. The reason why we believe the feverish rate of growth is likely to materialize is because, with no carbon beneficial substitutes available in the near term, biofuels are being promoted by governments. Clear examples of this are the trends of regulations in the EU, and the intentions announced in the US. BP is already a major player in the global biofuels market. In 2006 BP blended 3,016 million litres of ethanol into gasoline – a 25% increase on the previous year. Thus BP is already well exposed to the biofuels fever – and the theme of this paper is to suggest how the industry can tap the heat of the fever in a positive sense.

Brazil has been particularly chosen to host this conference as the Brazilian biodiesel industry is making rapid strides towards increased production. It is already the seventh largest producer of biodiesel in Europe and there are more than 28 biodiesel production plants in pipeline. This is primarily due to the Brazillian Renewable Energy Program (REP), 2005, which kick-started the production of biodiesel. The current regime of full tax exemption for a limited volume of biodiesel is the key incentive system for biodiesel in Brazil.  Brazilian biodiesel output will increase to 3.1 million metric tons this year from 2.56 million tons in 2013, with soybean oil the main feedstock, the Hamburg-based researcher wrote in an e-mailed report.

Brazil’s government has mandated biodiesel account for 6 percent of diesel fuel as of July, rising to 7 percent in November, according to Oil World. South American soybean oil prices rose in the past four weeks, reflecting demand from the biodiesel industry in Brazil and Argentina, the researcher said.
