The use of biofuels in Sweden has increased dramatically during the last decade and the country is now one of the leading member states in the European Union (EU). Sweden has ambitious national targets for the transport sector and the ambition to continue being a leading country for biofuel use. This requires policies that justify long term investment in biofuel production facilities and refueling infrastructure.

Diversification of forest industry activities into transport fuels is important for Swedish climate and energy policy goal achievement, and biofuel proponents also claim that it is important for Swedish forest industry competitiveness. There is significant ongoing research effort on biofuels for road transport and extensive experimentation on several technical platforms has been conducted. These different platforms each inter-relate in different ways with the forest sector and transportation fuel processing/value-adding industries. As of 2016, it remains unclear how many of these will emerge from niche applications or experimentation into the market mainstream.

A recently finished f3 project has modeled accumulated environmental impacts of Swedish biofuel production and consumption in order to understand how to report and quantify aggregated impacts from the biofuel sector from domestic consumption, production and imports/exports of biofuels. The project has included the development of a database of Imports-Consumption of Fuels and Raw Materials, and an LCA Model for Inputs-Consumption of Biofuels in Sweden and has been performed by IVL with project leader Michael Martin. A manuscript for...
