Biofuels for Transport

We are #1 advisor in advanced biofuels globally, covering your needs across the entire value chain from feedstock sourcing to production technologies and market outlook.

With over 15 years of experience in advanced biofuels, we are proud to provide advice and expert insights that support the vital decarbonisation of the transport sector. Our expertise covers the full range of transportation biofuels from FAME biodiesel to second generation ethanol and biomethane; advanced feedstocks from tall oil to agricultural residues; and all geographies from our home market of Europe to Southeast Asia and Brazil.

For instance, we have supported multiple stakeholders in the European biofuels market, where the Renewable Energy Directive II (RED II) defines the minimum mandated demand for advanced biofuels of 3.5% of the total energy demand in transport by 2030. This corresponds to approximately 10 million tons of oil equivalent (Mtoe) of advanced biofuels by 2030, which can only be produced from a specific list of sustainable feedstocks.

European regulations have created a vast market for advanced biofuels with limited supply. The mandated demand of 10 Mtoe of advanced biofuels alone would correspond to around 100 new biorefineries, requiring a capital investment of 30 – 50 billion Euros. In addition, due to the emission reduction targets in non-ETS sectors, we expect the demand for liquid biofuels to be significantly higher than outlined in RED II.

At AFRY, we apply our deep expertise to work towards the future of the biofuel industry. We offer our unique insight of advanced biofuels and sustainable feedstocks for strategic advisory, business development and engineering services.
