Let’s face it: Individual mobility is moving towards a crisis:
- Rising gasoline prices
- Increasing limitation of certain engine types in urban areas
- High pressure on emissions caused by petrol and diesel engines
All of these limitations are increasingly questioning traditional mobility solutions. This triggers the following questions:
⇨ Where are we heading with combustion engine vehicles?
⇨ Is the shift towards of electronic vehicles really the solution to our challenges in terms of emissions and high fuel prices?
⇨ Are we not shifting our emission problems to other industry sectors – away from the fossil industry and towards the exploitation of rare earth elements?
Natural gas vehicles do not have any of these problems. In fact, they have been a very interesting alternative to diesel or gasoline vehicles for decades now.
The only limitation of this now very advanced and safe technology is the still relatively low number of CNG / natural gas filling stations. And every year there are more and more filling stations popping up, developing a tight net throughout Germany and Europe.
The conference with company exhibition expects around 150 international participants and offers you an ideal opportunity for a knowledge exchange.

IBBK’s 3-day conference “Progress in Biomethane Mobility” will bridge the gap between the technology and the end user. We address the international scientific community as well as practitioners to present you the status quo and new and modern technologies.
The company exhibition during the two days of the conference and the excursion to selected biogas upgrading projects and biomethane mobility solutions in the region will put you in direct contact with the technology.
Call for Papers
- Overview over the political framework and tax laws in Germany and the neighboring countries
- Current developments in biogas upgrading technologies
- The climate-neutral “multi-talent” biomethane and its role in the transport and energy transition
- Adaptation of the continuous biogas production to the discontinuous fuelling processes of vehicles
- CNG-Drive: use cases, vehicle types and technologies
- Best-practice examples for decentralized generation and utilization
- Bio-LNG and its future role in decarbonizing the fuel sector
- Practitioners talk about their experiences
- Innovation and business forum
DEADLINE EXTENDED: The abstract submission deadline is April 30th, 2019.
To submit an abstract on the above topics, please click on the button below and follow the instructions on that page.
The scientific committee will evaluate your submissions and give you feedback on being accepted for the conference program in mid June 2019.
As an author of the accepted abstracts, you will be contacted directly through the email you submitted.
