The ninth Nordic Biogas Conference (NBC) will be held October 22nd–23rd, 2024 in Aalborg, Denmark.

Biogas solutions can solve many of humanity’s grand challenges, and through the last years, the biogas industry has gained growing attention both in the Nordic contries, in Europe and across the world. Biogas is at the center of a value chain delivering green energy, biowaste treatment and sustainable bio fertiliser.

The Nordic Biogas Conference 2024 will explore the recent developments and future perspectives of a biogas industry running fast – not only supplying green energy for a wide range of sectors, but also green fertiliser for the agriculture – and providing biogenic CO2 for carbon storage and production of e-fuels for heavy road vehicles, ships and airplanes. 

Target group: Stakeholders (users and decision makers) from both municipal and private sector, technology providers, energy companies, financial businesses, consultants, R&D / universities.

The whole value chain of biogas and fertilizer will be represented.

The conference includes plenary presentations, parallel sessions, a poster session and an indoor exhibition. NBC provides the opportunity to meet the decision-makers in the biogas industry, exchange best practice-information on production, distribution and utilisation of biogas and even bio-fertilizer in the Nordic countries, enhance cooperation and establish new business relationships. 

History of NBC
The Tradition of Nordic Biogas Conferences organized in co-operation between the five Nordic countries took its beginning in a very cold Helsinki in Finland in 2006. It developed through Malmö in Sweden in 2008 and Oslo in Norway in 2010. In Copenhagen in Denmark in 2012 we reached to highest number of participants and exhibitors.

Reykjavik in Iceland in 2014 and the maritime version between Stockholm and Vasaa in Finland organized by Finland in 2016 took, however the price for the most spectacular venues. In 2019 we were back in Oslo before the covid-19 interrupted the biannual Nordic conferences. In 2022 Nordic Biogas Conference we were in Linköping, Sweden, with a successful conference.

Strong organisers – international focus
NBC 2023 is organised by the leading representatives for the biogas industry from all five Nordic countries and will attract attendees from all over the World. More than 30 speakers and participants from more than 20 countries are expected to come to Aalborg for NBC.

Biogas Research Center, Avfall Sverige, Energigas Sverige, Avfall Norge, Biogas Danmark, Finnish Biocycle and Biogas Association and SOPRA.

Who should attend?

The conference is a great opportunity for all those actors wanting to explore how biogas solutions can help different organizations to meet societies’ grand sustainability challenges. Representatives from cities and regions is an important target group as well as those from industry who for instance want to become fossil-free. Companies involved in transport, forestry and the food sector including farmers will all find the conference program relevant and rewarding. Not least of course, politicians on different levels can learn a lot but also explain the needs of the political actors. Researchers of different disciplinary backgrounds will also be there, of course together with the core actors of the biogas solutions sector itself.
