IEA Bioenergy ExCo Workshop - Technology advances in liquid biofuels and renewable gas
IEA Bioenergy TCP, and hosted by Federal Ministry of Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology and organised by BEST - Bioenergy and Sustainable Technologies GmbH
Both the accelerating climate change as well as the energy crisis related to the war in Ukraine, call for urgent action to move away from fossil fuels such as oil and gas. Energy savings and renewable energy are the key tools to achieve that. Renewable transport fuels and renewable gases will need to have an increasing role in the transport system and the gas distribution system. A strong growth in so-called 'advanced technologies' will be required, starting from a variety of feedstocks, particularly underutilised heterogeneous biomass resources. Meanwhile, increasing prices for oil and gas have totally changed the picture and prospects of renewable fuels compared to one or two years ago.
The workshop explored advances being made in new biofuels technologies, as well as technologies to produce renewable gas (biomass based), and discussed what is needed to accelerate their roll out to the market. It contained three parts: the first session considered advances in renewable gas / biomethane, the second advances in liquid biofuels, and the third session showed concrete developments in Austria.
