We were honoured to once again have our Awards Ceremony hosted by a representative of the City of Rotterdam - this year we welcome Vice-Mayor for Sustainability, Alexandra van Huffelen.

“The Sustainable Biofuels Awards are designed to encourage, inspire, and reward innovation throughout the biofuels value chain,” said Nadim Chaudhry, Managing Director of Green Power Conferences. “Within the biofuels value chain, there are countless initiatives making a huge difference to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, protecting the environment, and enhancing society, and we are committed to recognising those achievements.”
