The demand for sustainable biofuels for transport mobilizes ‘green carbon’ feedstock chains, for transport and for green chemistry. Resource efficient biomass feedstock supply is essential to sustain current capacities and facilitate market development for advanced biofuels and green chemistry technology pathways.
A largely untapped resource base consists of agricultural residues and residues in the agricultural production chain.
This side event addresses the potential of agricultural residues and the challenges and potential in the different transport sectors. Moreover, it will be shown how technology is key to convert agricultural residues into advanced sustainable biofuels that meet the stringent requirements at the engine engineering side.
With key-notes from Biobased Delta, TNO, IEA Advanced Motor fuels and panel discussion with HAN Automotive, TNO automotive, SkyNRG and Maritiem Kenniscentrum, led by TNO and Platform Duurzame Biobrandstoffen.
Moderation: Eric van den Heuvel, director Platform Duurzame Biobrandstoffen (PDB)
13.45 – 14.00 Welcome and introduction – André Faaij, Director of Science TNO
Advanced is defined by the resources, it requires high-tech technique to create green chemical building blocks and drop-in or new fuels for the transport market
14.00 – 14.20 ‘Biomass from wastes residues in the agricultural sector’ – Biobased Delta
14.20 – 15.00 ‘Advanced biofuels, state of the art and R&D challenges’ – Jaap Kiel and Stephan Janbroers, ECN part of TNO
15.00 – 15.30 ‘New alternative fuel options for combustion engines’ - Nils-Olof Nylund
Advisor, Engine and vehicle emissions, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd
16.00 – 16.30 Three pitches about the status use of renewable fuels and next challenges to solve in Road Transport, Aviation and Shipping (inland and sea going) – Jan Ebbing, TNO Traffic & Transport, Sky Energy, Maritiem Kenniscentrum
16.30 – 17.10 Panel discussion and mentimeter session – Eric van den Heuvel, PDB
What have we learned about deployment of renewable fuels, what are challenges and what’s next?
17.10 – 17.15 Closure – Eric van den Heuvel, PDB
