Sustainable European biofuels

Under the leadership of Scania and Yara, we are exploring the potential of producing sustainable biofuels on European land that is not suitable for growing food or feed. By focusing primarily on former coal mining sites in Central and Eastern Europe, we hope to demonstrate the value of biofuels production and usage – particularly in regions that might otherwise be left behind in the low-carbon energy transition. We also hope to showcase the many other benefits of the bioeconomy – restoring old industrial sites in ways that increase biodiversity, using agricultural processes to capture carbon, reducing GHG emissions, while creating new bio-based industries and jobs.
