Pellet Conference 2021 : European Pellet Conference 2021
Call For Papers
WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT?
Europe has the ambitious goal of becoming the first climate neutral continent by 2050. The Green Deal and the EU Climate Law are first concrete steps. Bioenergy is a key pillar of the European and global energy transition and can also contribute to economic growth. In 2021, the conference – the largest annual pellet event worldwide with more than 450 participants from over 50 countries each year – shows how we can make a green recovery happen in practice and how the pellet sector can profit from this deep transformation.
This special edition of our annual conference is planned as a hybrid event: you can join us in Wels/Austria or connect digitally from anywhere in the world.
Bioenergy for a green recovery!
