Renewable transportation fuels is a hot topic today. The government has decided that in 2045, the Swedish energy supply should be sustainable, resource efficient and with no net emissions of greenhouse gases. One step on the way is a fossil-independent vehicle fleet already in 2030. In other words – high ambition targets.

To be able to realise full-scale investments in Swedish advanced biofel production based on waste or lignocellulose, the issue needs immediate and wide-ranging attention. The project series BeWhere Sweden has investigated which aspects that have the largest impact on cost-efficiency in forest-based biofuel production. Focus has been on developing a model for geographic location of production plants. f3 has given its support to the work from start, and soon the final report from the third phase of the project, financed within the collaborative research program “Renewable tranpsportation fuels and systems”, will be published. Despite the end of the project, the model however continues to exist and generate insights.

This is an excerpt of the introduction of the story “Biofuel stakeholders cooperate in the project series BeWhere Sweden” published in June 2017. The full story is available for download in Swedish.
