Sustainable feedstock supply for bioenergy and biofuels


IEA Headquarters: 15 September 2010 - 16 September 2010

Organiser: IEA

Background

As part of the two roadmapping efforts on Advanced Biofuels for Transport and Bioenergy for Heat and Power, the IEA is organising an expert workshop at the IEA headquarters on September 15-16. The workshop will address issues related to biomass and land availability, international biomass trade, biomass costs and sustainability-related topics relevant to bioenergy as well as biofuels.

The IEA biofuel roadmap will describe the steps necessary to achieve the ambitious biofuels targets layed out in the ETP 2008 Blue Map scenario. The roadmap will identify major barriers, opportunities, and policy measures for policy makers and industry and financial partners to accelerate RDD&D efforts for advanced biofuel technologies and ensure sustainable feedstock provision on both a national and international level. As a first step, the technology development and end-use related issues for advanced biofuels have been explored in an expert workshop that took place 15-16 of April at the IEA headquarters. In a second phase, issues related to the sustainable feedstock supply for biofuels as well as other bioenergy applications, will be addressed. An expert meeting on, amongst others, biomass and land availability, international biomass trade, supply costs and sustainability-related topics will take place September 15-16 at the IEA headquarters in Paris.
