Advanced biofuels and drop-in fuels showcase

With the fuels set to play a bigger role in meeting decarbonisation targets, we look at the opportunities available

  • Advanced fuels from municipal, industrial, and food waste and agricultural and forest residues

  • Renewable diesel as a usable and sustainable global biofuel product

  • Biomethanol as a drop-in fuel

  • Novel fuels – fuels of non-biological origin and recycled carbon fuels

  • Biorefining of pyrolysis oil

  • Isobutanol as a gasoline blendstock
