Key Information


Full name of Instrument & Measure (English): 
European Biofuels Technology Platform
Established in 2006, the EBTP brings together the knowledge and expertise of stakeholders from industry, biomass resources providers, research & technology development organisations and NGOs in a public private partnership. To help address public concerns of biofuels and enable the EU to increase their market share of biofuels to 10% by 2020 (including a significant proportion of advanced biofuels) the European Biofuels Technolgy Platform (EBTP) aims to contribute to the development of cost-competitive world-class biofuels value chains and the creation of a healthy biofuels industry, and to accelerate the sustainable deployment of biofuels in the European Union, through a process of guidance, prioritisation and promotion of research, technology development and demonstration.The main activities are carried out through four principle working groups covering biomass resources, conversion, end use, policy & sustainability, and an ad hoc working group covering the EIBI.
