World Biofuels Markets relocates to Rotterdam

It was recently announced that World Biofuels Markets, Europe’s largest Biofuels Congress and Exhibition, is relocating to Rotterdam for 2011. WBM Event Director, Nadim Chaudhry commented “We are very happy to be in Rotterdam next year. I believe Rotterdam is uniquely suitable to host WBM, as it has been a trading hub for centuries and is now the refinery capital of Europe. WBM is a major, global meeting point for the biofuels community and the emerging biorefining and biochemicals communities. The Congress has traditionally been an excellent marketplace, where the US and Asia meets Europe.”

 Suitable Venue 

 “It is difficult to find a suitable venue for an event of this size” continued Chaudhry “But we are pleased with the new World Trade Centre venue, it’s a redevelopment of the original Corn Exchange and it’s excellently located, only 20 minutes from international hub of Amsterdam Schipol Airport.”


New for 2011


“The agenda grows each year and this year we will be focusing on advanced biofuels, aviation and biochemicals. We will be adding a new Biogas stream and several tours to the programme for 2011, Europe’s largest port and some of the nearby biorefineries could be added attractions for our international delegates.”
