International Conference Progress in Biogas V - Call for papers open

Hybrid Conference + Exhibition + Workshops

For the fifth edition of our conference series “Progress in Biogas”, we’re back at the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart.

And with “Science meets Practice” as our motto, we once again invite you as researchers and practitioners to present your breakthrough results, best practice examples and experiences from the field.

In the last couple of years, biogas investments have developed massively, especially outside of Germany.

And while biogas plant operators in Germany are currently faced with tough decisions on how to continue their operation, with the end of the subsidized periods looming on the horizon…

Many other countries are starting to make their moves in the biogas world.

According to a market study from early 2019, the European biogas industry in 2018 had an estimated worth of over of USD 2 billion, with lots more growth potential due to favorable support schemes and heat incentives.

Even better: the European biogas market alone is anticipated to exceed USD 6 Billion by

That means the future for smart, innovative and sustainable biogas production looks extremely promising.

To bring together scientists and practitioners, “Progress in Biogas V” will yet again serve as the best platform to explore the future of biogas.

Together with the University of Hohenheim, one of the world’s leading  facilities for biogas research, we invite you to join us to this international knowledge exchange.

If you are a researcher or practitioner pushing ideas on one of the conference subjects forward, we invite you to join the conference as a speaker, poster presenter, attendant or exhibitor.

IBBK’s 3-day conference “Progress in Biogas” 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 event will be a hybrid one. Giving the opportunity to participate from the home people who cannot travel this time due to the actual conditions.

The COMPANY EXHIBITION during the two days of the conference will put you in direct contact with the technology.

During the WORKSHOPS, the attendees will get the chance to see the presented technologies first-hand, in practice.

Meet the decision makers and reach the most biogas-relevant contacts during this event as a speaker, exhibitor, sponsor or participant.


For this event, we’re looking forward to your latest breakthrough results to explore new ideas, debate on new concepts and proudly showcase your best practice examples.

As a new professional in the biogas and bioenergy sector, you get the chance to introduce yourself and get in touch with the senior experts.

And long year experts can benefit from sharing their wealth of experience to a fresh, international audience.

We are looking forward to your submissions on the following conference subjects:

  • Biological processes under difficult circumstances (high load capacity, high pressure, high nitrogen, etc.)
  • Microbiology of the anaerobic process and process stability
  • Fermentation of biowaste and residues
  • Faecal sludge treatment
  • Hygienic aspects of the biogas process
  • Substrate pretreatment – use of difficult substrates
  • The role of biogas in the bio-economy
  • System integration of biogas – On-demand biogas production (fuel, bio-CNG and LNG, power to gas)
  • Economic concepts for the future without feed-in tariffs (off-grid solutions, direct marketing)
  • Contribution to climate protection through biogas production (sector coupling or connecting, CO2 utilization, manure digestion)

Present your work to an audience from all continents of this planet that gets together in one of the most prestigious biogas universities in the world.

Additionally, you also have the opportunity to publish your abstracts in the special issue of the scientific peer reviewed
journal Bioresource

The Call for Papers will be open until FEBRUARY 1st, 2021!
