In July, the f3 Centre delivered a report describing the current knowledge status in Sweden concerning future transportation fuels and their sustainability. This was an assignment from the Swedish government investigation concerning a future fossil free transport sector called Utredningen om FossilFri Fordonstrafik (FFF-utredningen).

The latest report from an f3 project covers the issue of forest biomass as raw material for biofuel as well as other products. The project describes the environmental effects of alternative sourcing for current products from forest biomass when the biomass is instead used for fuel, highlighting several critical issues regarding climate related effects of biofuel production. A such, the report increases the understanding of how to maximize the positive climate effects of production of forest based biofuels. Find the full report here!

More ambitious energy and environmental targets and larger use of alternative energy in the transport sector increase system effects over sector boundaries, and while the stationary energy sector (e.g., electricity and heat generation) and the transport sector earlier a to large degree could be considered as separate systems with limited interaction, integrated analysis approaches now grow in importance.

This report from a recently finished f3 project summarizes and analyzes input data and transport biofuel-related results of 29 peer-reviewed scientific journal articles presenting studies based on different energy-economic models...

This project has performed a comprehensive review of publications regarding industrially integrated biomass gasifiers for motor fuel production. The purposes have been to identify and highlight the main reasons why similar studies differ considerably and to prepare a basis for “fair” techno-economic comparisons. Another objective has been to identify possible lack of industrial integration studies that may be of interest to carry out in a second phase of the project. Find the full project report here.
