Sustainable transportation biofuels today and in the future: summary

This report provides an overview of current knowledge concerning potential use and sustainability of biomass and production of sustainable biofuel from raw material to finished fuel (i.e. well-to-tank, or WTT). The report is based on the background report that f3 submitted to the Fossilfrihet på väg (literally Fossil-Free on its way) study from 2013, but has been updated with new data, as necessary and in accordance with access to new research findings. Based on systems analysis, WTT performance for various alternative production chains are presented, in respect of: Total energy efficiency; Greenhouse gas performance; Land efficiency; Economy. The report only covers biofuels and does not include other process chains for production of renewable fuel. Particular focus is placed on biofuel systems that are, and may be, relevant for production located in Sweden as well as those systems that contribute most to today's renewable fuel and/or have the greatest long-term potential for sustainable production in larger quantities.
