Today, Enviva Inc., the world’s leading producer of sustainably sourced woody biomass, announced that it will be presenting at the Global Clean Energy Action Forum on Thursday and Friday, September 22-23, 2022 in Pittsburgh, PA. Enviva’s President, Thomas Meth, will join an assembly of the world’s largest and leading companies, countries, and international experts who share the common mission of accelerating the clean energy transition.
“Today, woody biomass plays an important role in the global transition to a low-carbon economy – used predominately to decarbonize power and heat. At Enviva, we are proud that our product has been able to displace more than 48.3 million cumulative metric tons of CO2e since our inception nearly 20 years ago,” said Mr. Meth. “The future of our company is rapidly changing as utilization of woody biomass is expected to grow significantly by 2050 to help decarbonize hard-to-abate sectors. We couldn’t be more excited about all that modern bioenergy has to offer and about unlocking its full potential,” added Mr. Meth.
Of all global emitters, energy-intensive industries represent the hardest sectors to abate for net-zero, and the use of woody biomass feedstocks in these sectors creates new opportunities for decarbonization where urgent solutions are needed to reach climate targets. Recognizing this opportunity, Enviva is expanding its focus to include additional dynamic market opportunities — such as sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), green lime, green steel, and green cement — in addition to its core business of supplying the energy sector with a renewable, drop-in alternative to coal. Earlier this month, Enviva announced its partnership with Alder Fuels to scale and commercialize sustainable aviation fuel supply chains. This joint effort enables Enviva’s sourcing of sustainable wood fiber and Alder Fuels’ industry-leading technology to deliver the feedstock flexibility and commercialization of SAF needed to achieve jet fuel decarbonization at scale.
The 2022 Global Clean Energy Action Forum has already attracted more than 5,000 delegates from governments, international organizations, industry, academia, innovators, and NGOs. The event will cover the entire cleantech spectrum via Ministerial plenaries, topical roundtables, and over 100 technology-specific events with CEOs and experts from around the world, as well as energy and science ministers from 31 countries, dedicated to accelerating the production and use of sustainable, low GHG-emissions fuels, chemicals, and materials.
