Bio360 Expo 2022 - 30-31 March, Nantes
Bio360 Expo 2022 - 30-31 March

Accelerating the biotransition ... 


Bioenergy and the bioeconomy taken as a whole, offer a dazzling array of pathways to providing for our energetic needs and for the production of biobased materials, in short, to delivering a circular and renewable biosociety, where fossil carbon remains in the geosphere.


The Bio360 Expo 2022 conferences aim to delve into some of these and to shed light on current status, emerging trends, challenges and opportunities and will provide valuable insight from some of those at the forefront of accelerating the biotransition.


With a view to bringing to the fore some of the game changing European gasification technologies on the cusp of becoming mainstream names, this session will provide a panoramic view of state-of-the-art gasification technologies illustrated by shining examples of pioneering, market-driven innovations. Underlying their achievements is the promise to bridge the gap between vision and engineering excellence to deliver unparalleled efficiency in power performance (50-60%), the circular valorisation of novel feedstocks as well as the promise to produce a lot of clean, injectable green gas. Green gas is in full flow …

Synthetic methane 

The methanation of biogenic CO2 via biological, catalytic or plasma-catalytic conversion offers a pathway that optimizes the credentials of biomethane both from an environmental as well as production efficiency perspective. This session delves into successes stories ranging from both established players to brand new-entrants, each with their own distinctive approach. Green gas is in full flow …

Green hydrogen from biomass

Achieving green hydrogen is a fundamental piece of tomorrow’s renewable energy mix and in recent years a significant number of milestones have been reached in producing green hydrogen from biomass, from a number of different biomass feedstocks via a diverse range of conversion technologies. We will look at some of the headline grabbing thermo-chemical approaches (thermolysis, pyrolysis, gasification), biomethane reforming processes as well as some of the still more novel approaches coming over the horizon, eg microwave plasma technologies, green hydrogen from pig-urine as well as from micro-organism cultures residing in food industry effluents. Green gas is in full flow …

Hydrothermal gasification

Hydrothermal Gasification is a virtuous technology for almost completely treating and recovering wet organic waste using the water vector as the reaction medium.
It makes it possible to produce synthetic methane that can be injected into the network and to recover water and metals as well as nitrogen and mineral salts (phosphorus, potassium, etc.) that can be transformed into fertilizer products.
This conference will present the state of the art of its development in Europe and the prospects for its forthcoming industrialization in France.

The renewable gas sectors have not finished surprising you...!
