Houston to Host National Advanced Biofuels Conference & Expo in November

HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 04/19/12 -- BBI International announced this week that it will host the 2012 National Advanced Biofuels Conference & Expo at the Hilton Americas - Houston, Nov. 27-29, 2012. The event will unite existing and future advanced biofuels producers with strategic petrochemical and agribusiness partners, government officials, investors and project finance professionals, technology and biomass supply-chain service companies.

The event was successfully launched in 2011 as the International Biorefining Conference & Trade Show. In consultation with sponsors and supporting organizations, BBI changed the name of the event to highlight its critical role in helping the U.S. bioenergy and refining industries meet America's explicit advanced biofuels quest. "RFS2 requires 21 billion gallons of advanced biofuels to be blended into the U.S. transportation fuel supply by 2022," says Joe Bryan, CEO of BBI International. "We have now aligned the conference and expo with that national mission."

The National Advanced Biofuels Conference & Expo will continue to focus on the scale-up, commercialization and market development of both advanced biofuels and biobased chemicals. Presentations will focus predominantly on domestic (U.S.) production, R&D, and project development. International industry issues, such as exports and imports, foreign biofuels production and policy, and feedstock issues, will be covered from a domestic viewpoint. The two-day agenda will answer critical questions facing the industry and will offer conference attendees an unparalleled opportunity to gain a broad understanding of where the U.S. advanced biofuels industry is, what challenges it faces, and where it is headed.

"This event will bring the entire industry together under one canopy," says Matt Spoor, Vice President of Marketing & Sales at BBI International. "The name change exemplifies the new direction of the program. It also speaks to the 'all-of-the-above' strategy that's needed to meet our national advanced biofuels targets. Drop-in biofuels, advanced and cellulosic ethanol, biobased chemicals -- we're bringing it all together in Houston."
