Lignofuels 2020 Conference


Helsinki, Finland

Lignofuels Series is Back to Helsinki!

Earlier this year The Finnish Parliament has approved a law that is set to see biofuels targets gradually increase for 2030. The new law has made for a world-leading advanced biofuels target of 10% in 2030.

Finnish parliament's approval of the law will increase the share of biofuels used in road traffic to 30% by 2029. The government has also approved a law that will allow for the distribution of bio-based light fuel oil. A share of all light fuel oil used that is intended for heating, construction machines and fitted motors, will be replaced by bio-based fuel oil starting from 2021. (Emma Greedy, Biofuels International)

This is why following the success of last years conference in Oslo which gathered over 150 senior level attendees and further highlighted the leading role of Scandinavian advanced biofuels industry within the EU/EEA, we are excited to be bringing Lignofuels series back to Helsinki.
