Advanced biofuels are necessary for the implementation of the new EU 2030 Climate Target Plan in the EU Green Deal

Renewable gases and liquids produced from biomass can offer solutions allowing storing the energy produced from variable renewable sources, exploiting synergies between the electricity sector, gas sector and end-use sectors. Biofuels will have an important role to play, notably in hard-to-decarbonise transport modes, such as aviation or maritime, and in certain industrial processes – including through hybridisation projects linking biofuels and renewable hydrogen production. The European Green Deal will present opportunities for further targeted support to accelerate the development of the market for biofuels and biogases. For lowering GHG emissions by 55% in 2030, capacity in the order of hundreds of million tons of advanced biofuels will be necessary as early as 2025 besides electrification in transport, as these are the most readily available solutions. The European Green Deal is the framework for legislative options to boost the production and uptake of sustainable fuels for the different uses.

Advanced biofuels are an important solution for
reducing GHG emissions from transport

The Green Deal aims at shifting to smart and safe climate-neutral mobility and will be the guiding policy framework to achieve a carbon neutral Europe by 2050. Advanced biofuels are an important solution for reducing GHG emissions from transport and contribute to a climate-neutral Europe based on sustainability and circularity. Technological innovation and policy innovation need to go hand in hand in order to bring advanced biofuels from niche to norm.

The EUBCE is a great forum to bring industry, academia and policy makers together to discover new trends and exchange on latest developments. The Advanced Biofuels Coalition (LSB)* supports EUBCE 2021 and is looking forward to meeting you there.

*LSB is a coalition of leading advanced biofuels producers and technology providers committed to making a strong contribution to meet the EU ambitions of reducing transport emissions. LSB is working closely with the EU institutions and the Member States and promote the use of advanced biofuels in the European Union.
