Concise summary of a key component in the compliance mechanism of the RFS2.
There is a substantial untapped resource available in Europe of unused cellulosic wastes and residues. The technology exists to convert these biomass resources into advanced biofuels, with the technical potential to substitute up to 16% of European road transport fuel by 2030 while delivering greenhouse gas savings of 60% or more.
Published in the journal GCB Bioenergy, this paper examines widely cited studies estimating future bioenergy potential and finds that some assumptions for parameters including crop yields, land availability, and costs are inconsistent with the best available evidence.
