The Conference will focus on the factors affecting the future of bioenergy. The abstracts will play a very important role of the programme. At the moment an important role is to create forest energy markets and mobilization. We like to learn more about examples how to create markets and to overcome barriers on national and international markets. Some countries, as e.g. Russia, and areas, as e.g. North America and South America, have huge forest resources and will play an important role in international business. Other important thing is forest energy resources in national strategies. Modern technologies for forest fuel production, handling transport and logistics will be presented and shown during technical tour to FinnMetko exhibition. Combustion, boiler technologies and Combined Heat and Power Production (CHP) -power plants for forest fuels are of importance in practical use. The conference will also focus on conversion technologies, especially production of transport fuels and pyrolysis. Wood pellets are important in changing heating systems from fossil fuels to renewables. Wood pellets can also be used in coal power plants.

The Bioenergy 2003 with over 600 participants was organized by FINBIO. The Bioenergy in Wood Industry 2005 attended with over 300 participants. The 3rd Bioenergy conference 2007 was attended over 500 and 4th Bioenergy 2009 conference almost 400 registrated international and national participants.
