Building up the future, cost of biofuel
Sub group on advanced biofuels : sustainable transport forum - Study
This study seeks to support the European Commission in the elaboration of a methodology for the deployment of advanced biofuels. Currently, the contribution of advanced and other renewable fuels is very limited in the EU with a relative higher cost than fossil fuels they aim to replace. The Sub Group on Advanced Biofuels (SGAB) of the Sustainable Transport Forum consisted of 32 industry experts representing all advanced biofuels value chains as well as the transport sectors of aviation, maritime and heavy duty transport. The Sub Group on Advanced Biofuels worked also on the cost of the various... biofuels considering mainly those that their development had reached that of large scale demonstration plants and first of a kind plants. This report summarises the findings. The data were collected directly by the industry; therefore they represent the most accurate and reliable results on advanced biofuel cost relative to diesel and petrol. This work was led by Ingvar Landälv, the Vice Chair of the SGAB assisted by Lars Waldheim, a member of the Core Team.
