Long-term Sustainability Evaluation of Fossil Free Fuels Production Concepts

The background for this application is that the development of fossil free fuels will take place in a situation with successively, probably radical, changing conditions regarding surrounding energy system, energy prices and policy instruments. This means that the conditions economically and environmentally for fossil free fuel concepts will not be the same as today. There is therefore a strong need for methods dealing with economic and environmental consequences for new bio-based fuel concepts in different future scenarios. In this project, ongoing developments generally in this area and especially in three Swedish research groups from LTU, LU and Chalmers will be analyzed and compared and possible combinations of methods will be identified. In addition to a report from the project, it will result in a review paper with the aim to be an important contribution to the need for a firm knowledge base for decision-making about biofuel developments in industry as well as in policy-making.
