Sessions & Tracks
Track 1: Biofuels
Biofuels are fuels that can be processed from numerous types of biomass. First generation biofuels are processed from the sugars and vegetable oils formed in arable crops, which can be smoothly extracted applying conventional technology. In comparison, advanced biofuels are made from lignocellulosic biomass or woody crops, agricultural residues or waste, which makes it tougher to extract the requisite fuel. Advanced biofuel technologies have been devised because first generation biofuels manufacture has major limitations. First generation biofuel processes are convenient but restrained in most cases: there is a limit above which they cannot yield enough biofuel without forbidding food supplies and biodiversity. Many first-generation biofuels rely on subsidies and do not cost competitive with prevailing fossil fuels such as oil, and some of them yield only limited greenhouse gas emissions savings.

Track 2: Biomass
Biomass is derived from different types of organic matter: energy plants (oilseeds, plants containing sugar) and agricultural or urban waste. Biomass can be used for generating heat and electricity, and for transport biofuels. Bioenergy and biofuels contributed to around 63 % of renewable energy generation. Bioenergy can be traced back to energy from sunlight, produced via photosynthesis, making it a major renewable energy source. As a storage house of bioenergy, biomass can be considered to be natures 'solar batteries’. The energy biomass produces can be converted into electricity, heat or biofuels.

Track 6: Bioeconomy
Bioeconomy or biotechonomy is meant to reduce the dependence on natural resources, transform manufacturing, promote sustainable production of renewable resources from land, fisheries and aquaculture and their conversion into food, feed, bio-based products, and bio-energy. The forecasted change in climatic conditions and increasing depletion of fossil fuel sources require the economy to be based preferably on renewable resources. Securing global nutrition also demands an increase in productivity with due regard to protecting resources and the environment. Cutting-edge biological and technological knowledge and methods for both intensive and yet sustainable production, provision and processing of biomass may bring about this change in the industrial resource base and contribute to reducing the burden on the environment and to conserving the earth’s finite resources.
Track 7: Renewable Energy
Renewable energy is energy that is generated from natural processes that are continuously replenished. This includes sunlight, geothermal heat, wind, tides, water, and various forms of biomass. This energy cannot be exhausted and is constantly renewed. The importance of renewable energy comes down to sustainability. Since the industrial revolution, global energy demands have skyrocketed and our current dependence on fossil fuels, a non-renewable source of energy, to meet those needs is not something that is sustainable in the long term since we are using up the resources faster than the earth is producing more.

Track 8: Biodiesel and Biogas
Biodiesel is an alternative fuel similar to conventional or ‘fossil’ diesel. Biodiesel can be produced from straight vegetable oil, animal oil/fats, tallow, and waste cooking oil. The process used to convert these oils to Biodiesel is called transesterification. The main benefit of biodiesel is that it can be described as ‘carbon neutral’. This means that the fuel produces no net output of carbon in the form of carbon dioxide (CO2). This effect occurs because when the oil crop grows it absorbs the same amount of CO2 as is released when the fuel is combusted. In fact, this is not completely accurate as CO2 is released during the production of the fertilizer required to fertilize the fields in which the oil crops are grown. Biogas can be produced from crude issues, for example, horticultural waste, civil waste, excrement, plant material, green waste, sewage or sustenance squander. Biogas is a sustainable power source and in various cases, it applies a restricted carbon impression. Biogas can be produced by the maturation of biodegradable materials or anaerobic processing with anaerobic life forms, which breaks down material inside a secluded framework.

Track 9: Biofuels for transport
Biofuels are transport fuels that are produced from renewable biomass with raw material from the forest, agricultural products or biogenic waste. There are a wide variety of conversion techniques that provide different types of fuels that can replace the current use of petrol and diesel. Most of these fuels are liquid, such as ethanol and biodiesel but they can also be gaseous biogas. Biofuels are largely compatible with today's vehicles and can be blended with current fossil fuels. Aviation is the second largest consumer of energy in the transport industry. The major hurdle to clear in aviation is the need for highly pure, chemically stable fuel. Having jet fuel freeze at 30,000 feet is not a good thing, so biofuels intended for aviation are more difficult to produce than for ground transport.

Track 10: Algal fuels and Bioproducts
Algae fuel or algal biofuel is a substitute for liquid fossil fuels that utilizes algae as its source of energy-rich oils. Also, algae fuels are a substitute for commonly known biofuel sources, such as corn and sugarcane. Various companies and government agencies are sponsoring efforts to reduce capital and operating costs and make algae fuel production commercially feasible. Like fossil fuel, algae fuel releases CO2 when burnt, but unlike fossil fuel, algae fuel and other biofuels only release CO2 recently withdrawn from the atmosphere via photosynthesis as the algae or plant grew. The energy crisis and the world food crisis have sparked interest in algaculture (farming algae) for making biodiesel and other biofuels utilizing land unbefitting for agriculture.

Track 11: Hydrogen and Fuel cells
Hydrogen can store and deliver energy in a widely useable form, and it is one of the most promising alternative fuels for future energy applications. It can be produced pollution-free, without carbon dioxide emissions and it decreases our dependence on dwindling oil reserves. However, significant development is needed before hydrogen can be exploited in the same way as conventional fossil fuels. Hydrogen also has associated hazards that must be properly addressed to ensure its safe use and storage that encompasses research and development, demonstration, application, and standardization. A fuel cell is a device that generates electrical power through a chemical reaction by converting a fuel (hydrogen) into electricity. In the future, hydrogen could also join electricity as an important energy carrier. An energy carrier moves and delivers energy in a usable form to consumers.

Track 13: Bioalcohols and Bioethanol
Biologically synthesized alcohols, most frequently ethanol, and rarely propanol and butanol, are formed by the reaction of microorganisms and enzymes through the fermentation of sugars or starches, or cellulose. Biobutanol also called biogasoline is often asserted to provide a direct stand-in for gasoline because it can be used precisely in a gasoline engine. Ethanol fuel is the most widely used biofuel worldwide. Alcohol fuels are formed by fermentation of sugars derived from wheat, sugar beets, corn, molasses, sugar cane and any sugar or starch from which alcoholic liquors such as whiskey, can be produced (such as potato and fruit waste, etc.). The ethanol manufacturing methods applied are enzyme digestion (to release sugars from stored starches), distillation, fermentation of the sugars and drying. Ethanol can be used in petrol engines as a substitute for gasoline; it can be blended with gasoline to any concentration.

Track 14: Natural Gas and Crude Oil
Unrefined oil is in like manner generally called as "Dark Gold". Oil and Gas are hydrocarbons as they are the compound of carbon and hydrogen particles. By the development in temperature, the common matter is at first changed into lamp fuel, which is a solid kind of hydrocarbon. At around 90°C, it is changed into a liquid state, which we call oil and at around 150°C, it is changed over into a gas. A stone that has made oil and gas thusly are known as a Source Rock. Raw petroleum creation is described as the measures of oil removed from the earliest starting point the departure of inert matter or pollutions. It fuses foul oil, regular gas liquids, and included substances. Natural gas is a naturally occurring hydrocarbon gas mixture consisting primarily of methane, but commonly including varying amounts of other higher alkanes, and sometimes a small percentage of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, hydrogen sulfide, or helium.
