In the article, researchers Åsa Kastensson, Bio4Energy/Luleå Technical University and Pål Börjesson, Lund University,  explain some of the obstacles for increased use of ethanol, found in the ongoing f3 project Barriers to an increased utilisation of high biofuel blends in the Swedish vehicle fleet.
