In the coming decade the share of renewable fuels in transport needs to increase significantly to lower the climate impact of transport and mobility and keep Europe on track to Paris. The Renewable Energy Directive for the periode 2021 to 2030 sets out a clear growth path for biofuels based on biogenic wastes and residues (advanced biofuels) as well as for renewable fuels produced from renewable electricity (often called e-fuels, power-to-x fuels or in RED-terminology:RFNBOs).
To get a good overview on the development of advanced biofuel recently three new reports have been published that help understanding the current status:
- March 2020, ETIP Bioenergy provided an overview of the status of European demonstration projects, based on various technology conversi0n pathways: Current status of advanced biofuels demonstrations in Europe
- March 2020, IEA Bioenergy published Advanced Biofuels: Potential for Cost reduction
- End 2019, the Norwegian Environment Agency published a global status overview of liquid advanced biofuels projects
Other publications that help understanding the status on advance biofuels are:
- ART Fuels Forum published the 2018 update of the Technology status advanced and renewable biofuels value chains report
- A study by Ecorys for the European Commission addressed the Research and Innovation perspective of the mid – and long-term Potential for Advanced Biofuels in Europe
