Events for you
The Fastmarkets Lithium Supply and Battery Raw Materials Americas annual event is the largest global forum for lithium and battery raw materials.
Fastmarkets European Battery Raw Materials Conference gives you a front-row seat to access insights and analysis of the battery raw materials market from the leaders and innovators shaping the industry. With the battery raw materials industry facing pressure from growth trajectories and price volatility, as well as regulatory and supply chain challenges, it’s even more important to come together under one roof to discuss what’s ahead. Whether you’re looking to network with peers to build and strengthen your business relationships, or want to learn more about the headwinds and tailwinds facing the electric vehicle and energy storage system markets, this conference has you covered.
If how to meet the world’s energy needs sustainably is the question, is biofuel the answer? The effects of climate change are being felt around the world; the pressure to reduce carbon emissions is higher than ever. On top of that, the Russia-Ukraine war has left Europe with scarce energy supply, which is now driving prices up globally. Increased biofuel usage could be the solution to many problems. But, while feedstock demand is rising in the US and Europe, production is often challenged by severe weather, governmental regulation, and inflationary pressures. Join your peers at Biofuels & Feedstocks Americas (formerly The Jacobsen Conference) to address these challenges.
