IEA Bioenergy Task 39: Commercialising Conventional and Advanced Transport Biofuels from Biomass and Other Renewable Feedstocks (Working period 2022 - 2024)

The overall goal of Task 39 is to facilitate the commercialization of biogenic, sustainable, low-carbon transportation fuels. This includes conventional and advanced biofuels produced through various technological routes such as oleochemical, biochemical, thermochemical, and hybrid conversion technologies. The main goal is to accelerate the decarbonization of the transportation sector, with an increasing focus on long-distance transport, which is more difficult to electrify.
