Future for road transport – Where are we heading?


Some argue that E-mobility (electric) is the only way replace fossil fuels, with proposing bans on diesel and gasoline internal combustion engines (ICE). Others are pushing for G-mobility (power to gas with hydrogen). However, ICE’s will be around for decades to come not just in road vehicles. B-mobility (biofuels) is also the only option that works in all existing engines right now.

Clean biofuels – The bridge to fossil free transport


There is a strong trend for cleaner emissions where both electric transport and biofuels are now expanding in heavy-duty vehicles and working machinery. Clean bio-fuels such as 100% FAME, HVO100, E85 and ED95 and 100% CBG biomethane are available today. The bridge can only be constructed from both ends. But how shall this bridge develop?

Biofuels in aviation and marine transport – We are flying and sailing green


The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), the IATA and the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) have targets to reduce their CO2 emissions by at least 50 percent by 2050 compared to 2005 and 2008, respectively. The challenge for aviation is production and cost for biojet. Though shipping has a range of options. How can these be combined?
