TNO-PDB Side event Advanced Biofuels

    Advances Biofuels and engine developments – essential in the energy transition

    side-event at the European Energy and Industry Summit
    10 december 2019
    13.45 – 17.15
    Kromhouthal, Amsterdam

    !! PDF’s of presentations are now available !!

    This side event address the potential of agricultural residues and the challenges and potential in the differente transport sectors. Moreover, it will be shown how technology is key to convert agricultural residues into advanced sustainable biofuels that meet the stringent requirements at the engine engineering side.
    With key-notes from ECN, part of TNO, Biobased Delta, IEA Advanced Motor fuels and panel discussion with HAN Automotive, TNO automotive, SkyNRG and Maritiem Kenniscentrum.

    The event was moderated by Eric van den Heuvel of the Platform Duurzame Biobrandstoffen.
