Following on from the successful Green Power bioenergy events in east and southern Africa, Bioenergy Markets Africa brings together key experts from both regions to cover all bioenergy issues and developments from policy to finance and agronomy & refining to sustainability. The amalgamation of Biofuels East Africa and Biofuels Markets Africa makes Bioenergy Markets Africa THE event for all your bioenergy knowledge and networking needs.

The Bioenergy Markets Africa Conference and Exhibition will bring together key players from the region with global industry experts. Africa has the potential to become a major exporter of bioenergy and this has opened up a lot of investment interest with Mozambique receiving a lot of the recent attention. In turn this offers many opportunities for local economic development. Attendees will learn more about this growing market at a time when the region is identifying expanding opportunities for the production of feedstocks and bioenergy for use both in Africa and for export. The growing demand for bioenergy has sparked a green revolution in Africa and a frenzy of bioenergy crop planting and investment. Can you afford to miss out?
