IBTC & AEBIOM Membership

IBTC members are European and international companies developing biomass torrefaction technology, pellet /briquette machine manufacturers, the technical division of the utilities and national or sectorial associations as well as other bodies or groups dedicated to the promotion of the use of torrefied biomass.

IBTC is a network of the European Biomass Association, AEBIOM. Hence by applying to IBTC, companies/associations become also members of AEBIOM.

IBTC has three main members’ categories:

1.IBTC Full Members

Parties active in production or consumption of torrefied biomass as well as system or machinery suppliers to the torrefaction industry, i.e. those already producing and most benefitting from any kind of promotion respectively removals of limitations and barriers.
FM constitute the IBTC Steering Committee, and therefore have not only the right to particpate in all IBTC activities but also to govern IBTC.
