Conference to help drive Australia's bioeconomy forwards

Bioenergy Australia invites those involved in waste and circular economy policy leadership, waste management, financing and project development to Bioenergy STRONG 2019, to be held in Brisbane this November. The event provides an opportunity to engage with global speakers, form business connections, meet investors and drive the Australian bioenergy and biofuel industry forward.

2019’s ‘Bioenergy STRONG — driving Australia’s bioeconomy’ conference will be held during Bio Innovation Week. Created in collaboration with Life Sciences Queensland, all programs for both organisations will take place during the week of 11–15 November 2019.

The event aims to empower, share knowledge and connect Australian bioenergy producers, investors, researchers and users to make Australia’s bioeconomy world class.

Following disruption to the global recycling trade after China’s decision to toughen restrictions on 24 types of recyclable waste from around the world, local stakeholders have debated Australia’s options — Bioenergy STRONG 2019 will provide practical problem-solving examples accelerating innovation in this space globally.

The event’s waste speaker line-up includes:

  • José Luís Guterres
    RESPECT — a project to enable Timor-Leste to become plastic neutral
  • Helen Pinch (Sustainability Manager, Qantas Airways)
    QANTAS: World’s first zero-waste flight
  • Amager Bakke (EfW and Skiing Facility Copenhagen Inge Johansson, Researcher)
    RISE Research Institutes of Sweden
  • Henry Anning (CEO ResourceCo Energy Systems at ResourceCo)
    Energy from waste — beyond municipal solid waste
  • Geoff Ward (CEO Hazer Group Limited)
    The Hazer Process — zero carbon products from local waste
  • Troy Collings (Director of Corporate and Regulatory Affairs Southern Oil)
    Waste — an asset to help solve Australia’s fuel security concerns
  • Jason Dickfos (Business Development Leader, Remote Energy at Energy Developments)
    US South Side LFG to RNG project

Bioenergy Australia is keen to see commercial growth in the industry that takes advantage of bioenergy’s unique potential — from reliable, dispatchable electricity through to advanced biofuels and new regional industries.
