Media Release

“Celebrating Biofuels Today, Ensuring Biofuels Tomorrow”

The Bioenergy Association of New Zealand (BANZ) supported by the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority is delighted to invite you to this year’s Liquid Biofuels conference and to introduce the event’s key national biofuels users who are presenting at the event. The presenters are available for interview prior to the conference and at the conference itself. If you would like to arrange an interview please contact the speaker’s directly to discuss an appropriate time or through the conference organisers. Details of speakers and their interests in biofuels are provided below.

Conference Programme - The programme (attached and linked here) sets out both a celebration of what the biofuels industry in NZ has achieved to date, highlights the successful experiences of current users and trials and looks to the future by setting out future demand particularly from the aviation sector, and demonstrates technologies that are entering the commercial phase of development and will ensure that advanced biofuels from our immense availability of waste organic matter, forest residues and new forest plantings will allow us to meet transport fuel demand. A registration form is also attached if you would like to attend.

Leading NZ Biofuels Producers - NZ has a number of biodiesel producers and one bioethanol producer. The leading producer of biodiesel is Biodiesel New Zealand. The bioethanol producer is Anchor Ethanol. Both are key note speakers at this year’s event:
