July 19, 2019: The newly released video gives a quick glance on the results of the EU project ADVANCEFUEL's research about the barriers to the market uptake of advanced biofuels. ATB is partner and one of the seven renowned players in the transport fuels, renewable energy resources and the bioeconomy.
The video is the first in a series of four videos about advanced biofuels in transport.

The overarching goal of the ADVANCEFuel project is to facilitate the market roll-out of advanced liquid biofuels and other liquid renewable fuels (further jointly addressed as “RESfuels”) in the transportation sector between 2020 and 2030, with an outlook on post-2030 impacts. It will do so by providing the market stakeholders with new knowledge, a user-friendly set of tools with integrated calculators, standards, and recommendations to remove the most prominent barriers against their commercialization.
The project ADVANCEFuel (Facilitating market roll-out of RESfuels in the transport sector to 2030 and beyond) has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement N.º764799. The project is co-ordinated by FNR, the German Agency for Renewable Resources and is set to run until September 2020.
Background: There is an urgent need to speed up decarbonizing the transport sector in Europe in order to comply with emission reduction targets. Advanced biofuels and other liquid renewable fuels are among the key options for transport decarbonisation. However, their further development raises significant challenges in terms of energy policy, and the shaping of industry, technology, supply chains and markets. Advanced biofuels and other liquid renewable fuels are of particular importance as the perspectives for biofuels based on food crops have deteriorated significantly in the past years. Their growth in actual supply and demand in Europe has levelled off after 2011, and the current EU policy documents set clear limits to their contribution for 2020 and 2030.
