National Biofuel Technology Platforms and Biofuel and Bioenergy Associations

Below are details of national biofuels technology platforms, and biofuels and bioenergy associations. These are independent national organsiations with no direct link to the EBTP. However, they may address similar topics such as research and demonstration, sustainability, feedstocks, conversion, end use and market development at a national level. More information is available on the website of each organisation.

Note: Some Member States don't currently have a specific association or platform for bioenergy (for example, France, United Kingdom), in which case the national renewables energy association is listed.
