The latest finished project within f3 is a knowledge synthesis addressing flexibility in ethanol based biorefinery processes using lignocellulosic feedstocks from the Swedish forestry and agricultural sectors. The flexibility of biorefinery operations is important as it determines their capacity to respond to fluctuations in feedstock supply and market demands. Here, the flexibility of...

One specific objective of Horizon 2020 is “to achieve a European transport system that is resource-efficient, climate- and environmentally-friendly, safe and seamless for the benefit of all citizens, the economy and society”.

Because of the increasing carbon footprint of the European transport sector, a broad range of measures are needed. These include a shift towards electric drives and sustainably produced biofuels – the latter especially for freight and heavy transport. Further, sustainably managed forests in Europe provide a large, and continuously increasing, amount of raw-materials for a large variety of products, including almost carbon dioxide neutral bio...

The intensified focus on bio-based economy has revived the interest in forest industry as a very important factor in the achievement of the transition away from an economy based in fossil raw materials. But is it economically viable and justified to produce transportation fuel from forest feedstock?

The recently published f3 report Where is the money? - Value flows in the present Swedish forest-based sector gives an overall view of the economic values related to the main physical biomass flows through the Swedish forest industry. In the report, researchers Jonas Joelsson...

The amount of arable land in Sweden has decreased for decades but it is not clear how this land is treated when it is no longer cultivated. Land that is not used for alternative purposes but is abandoned or left untreated could potentially be utilized for cultivation for bioenergy purposes, according to a recently published f3 report. In a bio-based economy where efficient utilization of biological materials and resources is central, appropriate land use strategies are of great importance, state the authors Johanna Olofsson...

Forest-derived methane may contribute significantly to a vehicle fleet independent of fossil fuels by 2030. According to a recently finished study, there is sufficient technical knowledge about energy conversion methods and several Swedish actors have investigated and prepared investments in production facilities, but the technology is not commercially mature yet and it needs support during a development period.

In the f3 report How can forest-derived methane complement biogas from anaerobic digestion in the Swedish transport sector? researchers Tomas...

The f3 organization has been reinforced by a partner from the forest industry. Bergvik Skog is one of Sweden’s largest forest owners and wants to support and influence the transition to fossil free transportation fuels.

–I’m happy to announce that we now, in the middle of the second phase, will strengthen the organization with a forestry partner, says Johanna...
