The purpose of the programme was to develop and introduce new, second generation technologies for the production of transport biofuels. This programme was implemented through discretionary State aid granted for eligible projects.

It focused on piloting and demonstrating second generation biofuel production technologies and chains.

Additional projects that can be included in the development programme were related, for instance, to the environmental and national economic impacts of biofuels, as well as to participation in European cooperation for the creation of sustainable development criteria and the standardisation of new fuels.

Grants for transport biofuel projects, amounting to EUR 9 million, were allocated in 2006 for use in 2007 - 2008.
