Specific Challenge:

Current biofuel and renewable fuel technologies are still not competitive compared to technologies of fossil fuel alternatives. This impedes their further development and market penetration. The specific challenge is to increase the competitiveness of next generation biofuel and renewable fuel technologies while diversifying the fuel supply pathways.


Support will be given to next generation non-food/feed drop-in biofuel and alternative renewable fuel technologies for energy and transport, which improve substantially beyond the state-of-the-art the performance as regards conversion efficiency, cost and feedstock supply, as well as end use compatibility. Proposals have to address one of the following:

  • liquid diesel- and gasoline-like biofuels from biogenic residues and wastes through either chemical, biochemical and thermochemical pathways, or a combination of them;
  • liquid gasoline-like biofuels through biogenic upgrading of biogas.

Expected Impact:

Projects are expected to reduce costs and improve performance of renewable fuels, notably as regards the efficiency, the environment and the society. The proposed solution will contribute to strengthening the EU leadership in this area.
