A high implementation rate of additional iLUC-free (indirect Land Use Change) feedstock for biofuel production is needed to realize biofuel targets. This is the general conclusion of a newly published article from the project Biofuels from biomass from agricultural land – land use change from a Swedish perspective, carried out within the Swedish Energy Agency and f3 collaborative research program Renewable transportation fuels and systems.

The article presents a study in which biofuel potential from iLUC-free feedstocks was quantified for Sweden and compared against the predicted biofuel demand from agricultural resources in 2030.

A link to the article, and more information about the project as a whole, lead by Serina Ahlgren, SLU, can be found on the project site.
