A session on Biomass for Agriculture

Biomass Asia Conference 2014 is now accepting submission for call for papers and interest to speak until 31 January 2014.

In the past years, we have covered topics ranging from biomass to energy applications, agriculture, eco-products, and high value chemicals. Over-arching themes such as policies, investment & financing, and carbon market featured strongly as participants seek to understand the total biomass value chain already in place in Malaysia and within the region.
