Why World Bioenergy is joining
International Wood Biorefining Week
As of 2016 Elmia’s World Bioenergy trade fair and conference will become part of International Wood Biorefining Week from 24–26 May at Stockholmsmässan Exhibition and Convention Centre in Stockholm. The new arrangement is a result of developments in bioenergy in general and the forest industry in particular.
Sweden is the world leader in the development of energy-generating biorefineries. There is a global interest in this field, which is why World Bioenergy will become part of Wood Biorefining Week. Three events will be held simultaneously. In addition to World Bioenergy there will be International Pulp & Paper Week, which is the traditional fair for the pulp and paper industry, and Bioeconomy Innovation Forum, a new event for new and innovative products from the forest industry.
