About Conference

kindcongress invites all the participants across the globe to attend the 9th Annual Congress on Biofuels and Bioenergy 2018 during April 16-17, 2018 Dubai, UAE.

The theme of the conference is “Biofuels and Bioenergy for Future” and to encourage young minds and their research abilities by providing an opportunity to meet the experts in the field of Biofuels & Bioenergy and Chemical Engineering.

Conference Summary:

The perception of biofuels has prevailed since the invention of the motor vehicle. For example, at the dawn of the 20th century, Henry Ford planned to power his Model Ts using ethanol, and initial diesel engines consumed peanut oil for running. With the discovery of immense petroleum deposits, gasoline and diesel were accessible reasonably, thereby confiding biofuels to the background. Nonetheless, the recent surge in oil prices added to mounting worries related to global warming linked with carbon dioxide (CO2), emissions have culminated in the re-emergence of biofuels as feasible alternatives. Biofuel is manufactured using a wide range of resources. This variety has grown notably in recent years, aiding shape a dexterous industry that is steadily searching for new technologies and feedstock. In fact, industry demand for reasonable, candid sources of fats and oils is bracing promising research on advanced feedstock such as Algae and Camelina. With more than a decade of commercial-scale production, the industry takes pride in its meticulous approach to improvement and strong target on sustainability. Production has risen from around 25 million gallons in the early 2000s to about 1.7 billion gallons advanced biofuel in 2014. With projected feedstock availability, the industry has settled a goal of manufacturing about 10 percent of the diesel transportation market by 2022. The industry’s economic impact is hovered to thrive significantly with pursued production increases. The industry backs jobs in diverse sectors, from manufacturing to transportation, agriculture, and service. Biodiesel is produced using a broad variety of resources. We welcome you, on behalf of the Organizing Committee, to this exemplary meeting with eminent scientists from different countries around the globe and sharing new and intriguing conclusions in Biodiesel production and usage, which will be held in Dubai from April 27 – 28, 2017.This inspiring and enlightening conference program including plenary lectures, symposia, workshops on a variety of topics, poster presentations and various programs for participants from all over the world.

Call for Abstract

9th Annual Congress and Expo on Biofuels and Bioenergy , will be organized around the theme “Biofuels and Bioenergy for Future ”

Biofuels Conference 2018 is comprised of keynote and speakers sessions on latest cutting-edge research designed to offer comprehensive global discussions that address current issues in Biofuels Conference 2018.


Track 1: Biohydrogen

Biohydrogen is described as hydrogen produced biologically, most often by algae, bacteria and archaea. Biohydrogen is a potential biofuel attainable from both cultivation and from waste organic materials. Recently, there is a huge demand for hydrogen. There is no record of the production volume and use of hydrogen world-wide, however utilization of hydrogen was predicted to have reached 900 billion cubic meters in 2011.Refineries are large-volume producers and consumers of hydrogen. Today 96% of all hydrogen is extracted from fossil fuels, with 48% from natural gas, 30% from hydrocarbons, 18% from coal and about 4% by electrolysis. Oil-sands processing, gas-to-liquids and coal gasification projects that are existing, require a vast amount of hydrogen and is presumed to raise the requirement notably within the next few years. Environmental regulations administered in most countries, increase the hydrogen demand at refineries for gas-line and diesel desulfurization. A significant future aspect of hydrogen could be as a replacement for fossil fuels, once the oil deposits are exhausted. This application is however dependent on the advancement of storage techniques to enable proper storage, distribution and combustion of hydrogen. If the cost of hydrogen generation, distribution, and end-user technologies decreases, hydrogen as a fuel could be penetrating the market in 2020.Industrial fermentation of hydrogen, or whole-cell catalysis, requires a finite amount of energy, since fission of water is accomplished with whole cell catalysis, to reduce the activation energy. This permits hydrogen to be manufactured from any organic matter that can be copied through whole cell catalysis as this process does not rely on the energy of the substrate.

Track 2: Food vs. Fuels debate

Food versus fuel is the plight regarding the risk of distracting farmland or crops for biofuels production to the drawback of the food supply. The biofuel and food price debate concerns wide-ranging views and is an abiding, controversial one in the literature. There is a conflict about the sense of the issue, what is creating it, and what can or should be rendered to remedy the situation. This intricacy and uncertainty are due to the wide number of concussion and criticism loops that can positively or negatively affect the price system. Furthermore, the relative strengths of these positive and negative impacts change in the short and long terms and implicate delayed effects. The academic side of the debate is also obscured by the applicability of different economic models and competing forms of statistical analysis.

Track 3: Advanced Biofuels

Advanced biofuels are fuels that can be processed from numerous types of biomass. First generation biofuels are processed from the sugars and vegetable oils formed in arable crops, which can be smoothly extracted applying conventional technology. In comparison, advanced biofuels are made from lignocellulosic biomass or woody crops, agricultural residues or waste, which makes it tougher to extract the requisite fuel. Advanced biofuel technologies have been devised because first generation biofuels manufacture has major limitations. First generation biofuel processes are convenient but restrained in most cases: there is a limit above which they cannot yield enough biofuel without forbidding food supplies and biodiversity. Many first-generation biofuels rely on subsidies and do not cost competitive with prevailing fossil fuels such as oil, and some of them yield only limited greenhouse gas emissions savings. When considering emissions from production and transport, life-cycle assessment from first generation biofuels usually approach those of traditional fossil fuels. Advanced biofuels can aid resolving these complications and can impart a greater proportion of global fuel supply affordably, sustainably and with larger environmental interests.

Track 4: Production of Biofuels

The energy that we obtain from biofuels originated from the sun. This solar energy was trapped through photosynthesis by the plants utilized as feedstocks (raw materials) for biofuel production, and amassed in the plants’ cells.

Various plant materials can be wielded for production of biofuels:

Sugar crops (such as sugar cane or sugar beet), or starch (like corn or maize) can be fermented to yield ethanol, a liquid fuel mostly utilized for transportation.

Natural oils from plants like oil palm, soybean, or algae can be ignited directly in a diesel engine or a furnace, or blended with petroleum, to yield fuels such as biodiesel.

Wood and its byproducts can be transformed into liquid biofuels, such as methanol or ethanol, or into wood gas.

Wood can also be combusted as solid fuel, like the familiar firewood. Chipped waste biomass, such as the tops of trees dumped by logging operations, can be burned in uniquely designed furnaces.

Researchers are actively working to enhance biofuel production processes. Before bioenergy can make a bigger contribution to the energy economy, agricultural practices, feedstocks, and technologies that are logical in their use of land, water, and fossil fuel must be started.
