Current status of advanced biofuels demonstrations in Europe

ETIP Bioenergy

ETIP Bioenergy, the European Technology and Innovation Platform on Bioenergy, has published a report that lists all demonstration and first commercial facilities for the production of advanced biofuels in Europe – known to ETIP Bioenergy up to March 2020 – which are planned, under construction, or operational.

The TRL of the listed facilities is TRL 6-7 (Demonstration), TRL 8 (First of a kind commercial) or TRL 9 (Commercial). It is worth noting that the list is based on publicly available information. The authors did not have the ability to access the details of all Member States regarding their national definition for feedstocks listed in the Renewable Energy Directive (EU) 2018/2001 (RED II), Annex IX Part A under (b), (c), and (d).

Technologies covered include those priority value chains (PVC) as defined by ETIP Bioenergy, which produce advanced biofuels. In addition to these, important facilities for the production of advanced biofuels via other technologies are also listed. Facilities for the production of biogas from RED II Annex IX Part A feedstock are not listed in this document,. A  comprehensive overview has been published by the Biogas working group of IEA Bioenergy and can be found here.

The ETIP Bioenergy status overview report can be found here.

The report presents projects and their technical details, covering a wide range of value chains as defined by ETIP Bioenergy in line with the Renewable Energy Directive Recast (RED II).  The value chains included are presented in the table below:
