24. Juni 2020: How can Europe develop a market for advanced renewable fuels?

The  EU-funded project ADVANCEFUEL has been exploring the social, economic, legislative and environmental barriers to the roll-out and uptake of advanced biofuels. The final event of the project ADVANCEFUEL invites to discover its final conclusions. Join the online seminar on 24 June, 14:00 to 16:00 (CET). 

Since 2017, the ADVANCEFUEL project has been exploring the social, economic, legislative and environmental barriers to the roll-out and uptake of advanced biofuels – those made from non-food crops, thus avoiding the food-feed dilemma. However, these fuels have their own concerns, including economic and technical viability, overall sustainability (from feedstock harvesting to end use), and compatibility with existing vehicle engines.

The revised Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) has set targets for advanced biofuel as an overall percentage of final energy use in transport, of 0.2% by 2022, 1% by 2025 and 3.5% by 2030, with a view to further growth by 2050 and beyond. Reaching these targets will require further development of the current market, and ADVANCEFUEL has been working with stakeholders to devise recommendations for European, national and regional policy-makers, as well as agriculture and transport industries.

To bring these recommendations to relevant audiences, ADVANCEFUEL is organising a online seminar for policy and industry stakeholders open to other interested participants.
