Fact Sheets & Guidelines

Fact Sheets

The fact sheets aim to provide the public with understandable information on innovative biofuels technologies and processes. The fact sheets provide an overview on the different biofuels and the production facilities, while their value chains indicate which technologies are being applied by companies, and country fact sheets give an short overview of biofuels in 10 countries.

The target group are people who are familiar with biofuels and have some scientific knowledge, but are not technical experts.
