f3 contributes, through scientifically based knowledge, to the development of environmentally, economically and socially sustainable renewable transportation fuels, as part of a future sustainable society and for the transition to a fossil independent vehicle fleet in 2030.

How we work

The Swedish Knowledge Centre for Renewable Transportation Fuels (f3) is a nationwide centre for collaboration between industry, academia, research institutes and authorities engaged in working towards a sustainable transport sector. The common starting point is that sustainable renewable transportation fuels play a key role in the transition.

f3 conducts system-oriented and interdisciplinary research in connection to every step of the renewable transportation fuel value chain. Together with the centre partners, f3 finances and carries through research projects, disseminates knowledge and engages in advocacy work.

The aim is to enhance the understanding for the need of a systems perspective on research and use of renewable sustainable transportation fuels among policymakers, business stakeholders, society and interest groups so that a fossil independent vehicle fleet can be realised – today, tomorrow and in the future.
