Argus Biomass Asia 2018 Banner

There is a good reason for the intense interest in Asian biomass markets. Significant demand increases in Japan and South Korea offer interesting opportunities for a range of stakeholders across the wood pellet and oil palm biomass supply chains in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. But the push for renewables initiatives in southeast Asia, increasing domestic demand and often challenging inland logistics are likely to result in considerable price increases, particularly for palm kernel shell (PKS).

This tug-of-war for Asian biomass supplies will be the core focus for the 2018 conference, as we move to provide further coverage in PKS and the region’s biomass power generation projects.

Do not miss the opportunity to join us in 2018.

What's new for 2018?

1. Increased focus on oil palm biomass as the next growth sector:

All eyes are on Malaysia and Indonesia as we see an increase in production of palm kernel shell (PKS) by the regions’ oil palm mills and an upward price trend on PKS. We have created more sessions where you can learn about new market developments while networking with those dedicated to the oil palm biomass market.

2. Case studies on new biomass power generation projects in southeast Asia:

Hear about these new projects and how they can potentially compete with exports to South Korea, Japan and China. There will be a focus on their sourcing strategies, logistical challenges and operation, and regulatory and bankability issues.

3. Making networking more strategic, structured and focused:

One of the key factors of a successful event experience – networking – is often left to the chance of random encounters. We are changing the game and creating new networking settings where you will have the opportunity to meet delegates with a similar interest.
