SHENYANG, CHINA – China is the world's fastest growing market for Bioenergy technologies. With huge reserves of readily available waste feedstocks, China is in the midst of a fundamental shift in how it powers its rapidly expanding economy. By 2020, China aims to expand the capacity of newly-built bioenergy facilities to 30GW, requiring major investments in advanced foreign technologies. With full support from the central government in Beijing, Shenyang has begun to reposition itself as leader in the production of ecologically advanced technologies and practices, most recently seen by the announced development of an internationally recognized Eco-city. This summit aimed to further help facilitate this transition by encouraging the transfer of necessary technologies.
With support from AEBIOM, EUBIA, the German Biogas Association and in close cooperation with the Shenyang People's Municipal Government, the China Bioenergy Technology and Investment Summit took place on the 20th and 21st of May, 2010 in Shenyang, China. The summit brought together over 90 government officials and industry leaders to provide a unique insight into evolving governmental policies, breakthrough technologies, major project updates and investment strategies for this multi-billion dollar sector.
