The cost-effectiveness of electrofuels in comparison to other alternative fuels for transport in a low carbon future
Poster (konferens), 2016

Electrofuels are synthetic hydrocarbons, e.g. methane or methanol, produced from carbon dioxide (CO2) and water with electricity as primary energy source. The CO2 can be captured from various industrial processes giving rise to excess CO2 e.g. biofuel production plants, and fossil and biomass combustion plants. Electrofuels potentially provide an opportunity for biofuel producers to increase the yield from the same amount of biomass. This project analyzes if there are conditions under which electrofuels are cost-effective compared to biofuels and other alternative fuels for transport in order to reach climate targets.
