The Salon Bois Energie for Industry and Municipalities is the reference event for the industry and municipality wood energy sector in France and represents the largest gathering of stakeholders, with typically more than 125 exhibitors and represented companies from across 10 European countries present and 3000 professional visitors.
The Exhibition is an annual event with a broad programme over two days encompassing a rich international conference with simultaneous translation, international business meetings, study tours, the innovation competition and two parallel complementary events for biomass/waste to energy.
FEEDSTOCK : multiple woody resources such as wood chips, end of life waste wood, wood industry by-products, can generate energy in a range of energy forms via the application of different conversion technologies.
PROCESS : Different processes including wood boilers, torrefaction, pyrolysis, thermolysis, pyrogasification, methanation... apply increasing temperatures in order to extract the energy content in the desired form, either directly or as a fuel.
OUTPUTS : a large range of outputs is possible from the different conversion processes in direct energy or as a solid, liquid or gaseous fuel, eg black pellets (coal substitute), biochar, bio-oil (heating, chp), syngas, methane (methanation of syngas), jet fuel.
ENERGY RECOVERY : the energy recovery opportunities include heat (district heating or steam), chp as well as biomethane which can be injected directly into the gas network or utilised for transport (a fuel termed biongv - bio natural gas for vehicles), aviation.
150 exhibitors from across all of Europe are expected to attend Bois Energie 2020. The Exhibition spans four principal sectoral activities :
1. Wood fuel production machinery and systems for :
- solid biofuels : wood chips, white or black pellets
- liquid biofuels : bio-oil, aviation biofuels
- gaseous biofuels : syngas, biomethane (methanation of syngas),
2. Production and distribution of wood fuels (solid, liquid, gaseous) from forest residues, end of life wood waste or industrial process wood waste
3. Energy recovery : boilers, district heating, cogeneration and tri-generation units
4. Institutions, media and tertiary services

"We are proud to have participated once again at the Bois Energie exhibition, this 2019 edition was no exception! This is a place where you can find providers, potential clients and all related issues associated with the biomass energy sector."
"We are pleased to have participated at the Bois Energie exhibition in Rennes. It was an excellent exhibition and we will continue to participate."
"The new formula of the Salon Bois Energie in Rennes generated very interesting and productive exchanges with the biomass energy project prescribers. It is the unmissable event for biomass energy."
"As it has been the case for several years, we exhibit at Bois Energie. This edition gave us the opportunity to establish really helpful contacts and to have very concrete discussions with our visitors with whom we have been able to make progress on a number of projects."
"Thanks to the Bois Energie Exhibition, we were able to meet our clients from north-western France and also to create interesting new contacts."
