Dear Participants,

As we strive to get through the challenges brought about by the pandemic and continue to meet the global needs for sustainable processes, we are pleased to invite you to the Sustainable Bioenergy and Processes conference taking place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) in Cape Town from the 13th to the 15th of December 2021. While we are optimistic that the situation with the pandemic should have improved by then, the hybrid conference will cater for participants that will prefer to participate remotely.

This year, the conference is dedicated to promoting bioeconomy in the midst of conventional energy resources. Conference tracks include biomass derivatives and products, bioenergy processes, bioenergy and sustainability as well as biofuels for industry and transportation. Abstract submission opens on the 15th of June 2021. All accepted abstracts will be published in an electronic book of abstracts. Full papers will be published in a conference proceedings and selected full papers that meet publishing requirements will be published in a special issue of Biofuels, Biorefining and Bioproducts (Guest Editors: Prof. Thokozani Majozi and Prof. Shu Zhang).

While we look forward to your contributions and participation, all necessary arrangements have been made to ensure COVID safety measures are fully enforced during the conference.

Join us as we assess the reliability and challenges of bioenergy and bioproducts in sustainable living.

Thank you as we look forward to seeing you in Cape Town.
