    27 May 2008

    Biofuels Markets Asia is organizing a 3 day Pan-Asian Meeting at the Hyatt Regency, New Delhi, India from 9 - 11 June 2008 that will bring together key players from across the globe to focus on the development of Biofuels in Asia for its 3rd annual conference. The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) will act as a strategic partner for the Biofuels Markets Asia event and provide an overview of the current and future markets for Biofuels in Asia, with specifics to the Indian scenario, policies and regulations for the biofuels industry.

    The event will give an in depth understanding of the Asian biofuels markets and what are the latest biofuels business opportunities in Asia? It will also focus on how are producers deploying commercially viable projects and how can investment be secured in the region? It will also touch the question as to how feedstock supply and pricing is affecting the markets; how can sustainable biofuels production be assured; what are the latest developments in production plants & technology and what does the future hold for biofuels in Asia? Apart from this a one day masters class on ‘Second Generation Feedstocks’ will also be the highlight of the event.

    Following on from successful editions in Thailand and Singapore, this year Biofuels Markets Asia is strategically planned in India as the government has recently implemented an ethanol blending program and is considering initiatives in the form of mandates for Biodiesel. Last year in Singapore over 450 attendees attended the Sustainable Energy Week Asia of which Biofuels Markets Asia was the lead conference.
