How can alternative technologies improve bio oil production? What role can renewable fuels play in the marine sector? In which way can different policy instruments contribute to the commercialization of future biorefineries and the production of renewable transportation fuels?
These questions will be investigated in three out of six new projects, starting this fall. They are the result of the spring call for projects within the collaborative research program that f3 runs together with the Swedish Energy Agency.
