Biofuels International 2017

[PAST EVENT] - Event date: 10.04.17

Now that the European Commission has released its plans for biofuels post 2020 with RED II, the industry can plan and prepare accordingly. Opportunities undoubtedly still remain as the sector evolves taking new legislation into account and renewable energy targets must still be met with governments committed to reducing their country’s GHG imprint.

Biofuels will continue to play a crucial role in the fuel supply chain with current and new producers looking to improve their processes and search for new markets, whether that be aviation, marine or vehicle biofuels.

The 10th anniversary edition of the leading Biofuels International conference & expo, for the first time held in partnership with Bioenergy Insight conference & expo, will focus on the latest developments in biofuels policy, international biofuels trading, sustainability, solutions for first generation producers, progress in advanced biofuels and information on feedstock pricing and trends. 

With over 200 attendees over 2 days of high level presentations and discussions it is an excellent opportunity to engage with the market and to highlight your company’s products and services. 

The event will be taking place October 4&5 in Edinburgh. More details can be found on the Biofuels International Conference website

The three-day program contains a mix of presentations with the latest market data plus plenty of time for networking.  Hear from an extensive range of high profile speakers from across the marine ingredients industry. 

IFFO is the international ‘not for profit’ organization that represents and promotes the fishmeal, fish oil and wider marine ingredients industry worldwide. We are globally respected and regularly represent the industry at international forums, as well as holding observer status at the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and the EU Commission and Parliament.

Acting on behalf of the fishmeal and fish oil producers and their trade associates, IFFO works to strengthen the global standing of the industry, while supporting responsible supply worldwide. With a network of members reaching across 60 countries, our members account for over 50% of world production and 75% of the fishmeal and fish oil traded worldwide. While these products are the core of our industry, recent years have seen a widening to include marine algae cultivation and the production of meal and oil from krill. Our members include producers, traders, feed companies, edible oil refiners, retailers, financial institutions, governmental and non-governmental organisations.

Our mission is to be the global trade organization supporting marine ingredients businesses, that:

  • adds value to its members activities; 
  • seeks to improve its offer to members;
  • is responsible and protects the reputation and long term success of the sector; 
  • is responsive, communicating clearly and effectively;
  • is respected by all its stakeholders; and 
  • contributes to direct and indirect human nutrition.

Innovation in Aqua Feed

Event date: 12.04.17

Formulated feeds are an important component of the farming process for a number of key aquaculture species. But producers are no longer focused only on feed conversion in relation to fish feed R&D.

This event will dive into how feed experts are trying to understand the ways nutritional components affect blood chemistry, immune responses, and gut microbiota in fish. It will address how precision nutrition, the right feed formula at the specific life stage or period of the year, is an approach increasingly used in the aquaculture sector.

The FeedNavigator “forum” concept has been developed by our editors to feature the most innovative and thought provoking companies and personalities in the modern animal feed industry and provide fresh insight into the issues shaping the market via a more interactive format.

This series of digital discussion forums will delve into hot topics that can easily be viewed from your computer live or on demand.
