Efficient market roll-out of advanced biofuels needed to achieve 2030 climate targets in transport

Current policy mechanisms have established targets and monitoring frameworks for low carbon fuels and improved car engine performance but have not yet been adequate to facilitate the market uptake of advanced biofuels. Their efficient market roll-out must be immediate if the 2030 targets are to be met. A new paper – by Calliope Panoutsou et al, recently published on …

TU/e leads consortium in Horizon2020 project on renewable maritime

Eindhoven University of Technology is going to lead a 4-year research and development project funded by the EU-Horizon2020 programme to explore the development of renewable maritime fuels. Many ships use heavy fuel oils that contain large amounts of sulphur and nitrogen leading to the emission of greenhouse gases and other damaging substances. The TU/e-led consortium IDEALFUEL seeks to …
