As oil imports and private vehicle ownership march steadily upward in China, the attractiveness of biofuels increases. The country is pursuing everything from algae to biodiesel in its effort to power its economy and increase energy security.
An urgent need to protect sea lanes makes military applications another potentially large Chinese alternative fuel market.
Major international private sector players like Boeing, DuPont, Coskata, Novozymes, and Honeywell UOP are already moving forward in China, partnering with large domestic concerns like COFCO, PetroChina, and Air China.
The American Council on Renewable Energy’s US-China Program invites you to a roundtable of a select group of industry experts for a robust discussion on these trends in the Chinese biofuels sector. Topics covered will include:
- What policies and subsidies the government will use to meet its biofuel targets
- The role of existing policies in supporting the industry and what future policies to expect
- The outlook on areas of cooperation for private and state-owned players
- How aviation biofuels can play a role in shaping the industry
