f3 functions as a Swedish, officially appointed, advocacy platform towards renewable fuels R&I in Horizon 2020 and EU-related strategies and priorities for future R&I. During the summer, the Swedish innovation agency Vinnova decided to continue its financial support for f3's activities in this area. The new project runs from August 2016 to July 2018.

The decision is taken in view of an extremely eventful fall ahead of us. The Commission is preparing the post-2020 research strategy for bioenergy and renewable fuels...

How can alternative technologies improve bio oil production? What role can renewable fuels play in the marine sector? In which way can different policy instruments contribute to the commercialization of future biorefineries and the production of renewable transportation fuels?

These questions will be investigated in three out of six new projects, starting this fall. They are the result of the spring call for projects within the collaborative research program that f3 runs together with the Swedish Energy Agency. Click on any title below to read more about the specific projects. The full list of active projects is found...

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...
