Membership categories & fees

 

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 Bioenergy Europe and so by applying to IBTC, companies/associations become also members of Bioenergy Europe.

Please note a price index will be applied to all membership fees on an annual basis. 

IBTC has three main member categories, namely, Full Members, Developing Members as well as Associate Members. Below you will find a short description for each of the memberships outlining the relevant fees for 2020.
