TOPICS / Biofrontiers


With the Biofrontiers project, the European Climate Foundation seeks to bring together stakeholders from industry and civil society to explore the conditions under which supply-chains for advanced biofuels for transport may be developed in a sustainable manner. The project builds on work carried out in 2013–2014 on waste and residue-based feedstocks for advanced biofuels. (For a survey of that work, see Wasted: Europe's untapped resource.) Biofrontiers will also place a new focus on land-using feedstocks and novel fuel technologies.
