Agenda for Technical Sessions Announced for the 2015 International Biomass Conference & Expo

Created From Nearly 200 Abstracts and Produced by BBI International, the Technical Sessions Contain the Most Comprehensive Biomass Presentations Gathered From Around the Globe

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - Jan 20, 2015) - BBI International announced this week the agenda for the technical sessions of the 8th annual International Biomass Conference & Expo, North America's largest and fastest growing biomass conference, taking place April 20-22 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The 2015 agenda -- featuring four comprehensive tracks -- is tightly focused on leading edge developments in the biomass industry, from feedstock cultivation, harvest and storage to conversion technology, project finance and regulatory guidance.

The 2015 main program will include 30-plus panels and more than 100 speakers, including 90 technical presentations, all within the structured framework of four informative tracks:

Track 1: Pellets & Densified Biomass
Track 2: Biomass Power & Thermal
Track 3: Biogas & Landfill Gas
Track 4: Advanced Biofuels & Biobased Chemicals

"Our agenda already boasts nearly 100 of this industry's sharpest minds and we still have yet to publish the agenda for our co-located event, Heating the Midwest, that will take place the Monday preceding the event. With the addition of Heating the Midwest, we are expecting this to become the largest biomass event in the world. We'll have more than 150 speakers and moderators on our various agendas and nearly a total of 1,500 attendees," says Tim Portz, Vice President of Content & Executive Editor for BBI International. "I'm grateful for the incredible biomass experts that continue to support this event and share their knowledge with attendees."

In addition to the main conference agenda and expo hall, BBI has partnered with Heating the Midwest, which focuses on increasing the awareness and usage of renewable biomass for heat, not only in the Midwest, but around the world. "We are excited to be partnering with Heating the Midwest, because the International Biomass Conference & Expo supports its vision of increasing the use of renewable biomass," says John Nelson, Director of Marketing and Sales at BBI International. "By bringing both agendas and audiences together under one roof, we believe that attending the International Biomass Conference & Expo is a must if you want to better understand the latest developments in the biomass industry."
