On February 3, f3 and SFC (The Swedish Centre for Biomass Gasification) co-arranged a half-day seminar titled Full speed towards a fossil free transport sector? Perspectives on gasification based biofuels and the role of pilot and demonstration plants in Gothenburg. The seminar was attended by approximately 120 participants from universities, research institutes and industry all over Sweden. In addition to the seminar, study visits to Preem Göteborg (production of renewable diesel and gasoline based on tall oil and other residues) and Göteborg Energi's GoBiGas plant (gasification of forest residues for production of biogas ) were organized.

The presentations are now available below (click on the title).

f3 and SFC wish to thank all speakers, study visit hosts and participants for an interesting day!
