Current Status of Advanced Biofuels Demonstrations in Europe



This report lists all current demonstration and first commercial facilities for the production of advanced biofuels in Europe, which the ETIP-B-SABS2 project team and the ETIP Bioenergy WG 2 are aware of and which are planned, under construction, or operational. The TRL of the listed facilities is TRL 6-7 (Demonstration), TRL 8 (First of a kind commercial) or TRL 9 (Commercial). It is worth noting that the list is based on publicly available information. The authors do not have the ability to access the details of all Member States regarding their national definition for feedstocks listed in the Directive (EU) 2018/2001 (RED II), Annex IX Part A under (b), (c), and (d), nor do we have the ability to trace all rather small quantities of other feedstocks listed there.

Technologies covered include those priority value chains (PVC) as defined by ETIP Bioenergy, which produce advanced biofuels. In addition to these, important facilities for the production of advanced biofuels via other technologies are also listed. Facilities for the production of biogas from RED II Annex IX Part A feedstock are not listed in this document, as a very comprehensive overview developed by IEA Bioenergy Task 37 already exists, see:
