Fostering Sustainable Feedstock Production for Advanced Biofuels on underutilised land in Europe

Duration: 2016 - 2018 ● Client: European Commission (H2020) ● WIP Role: Coordination, Market uptake, Policy development ●

FORBIO project will demonstrate the viability of using land in EU Member States for sustainable bioenergy feedstock production that does not affect the supply of food and feed, in addition to not interfering with land currently used for recreational and/or conservation purposes.

Project activities and outputs set the basis for building up and strengthening local bioenergy value chains that are competitive and that meet the highest sustainability standards, thus contributing to the market uptake of sustainable bioenergy in the EU.


  • Identification of social, economic, environmental and governance-related opportunities and challenges for advanced bioenergy deployment through a series of multi-stakeholder consultations
  • Evaluation of the agronomic and techno-economic potential of the selected advanced bioenergy value chains in the case study sites of the target countries
  • Assessment of the environmental, social and economic sustainability of the selected advanced bioenergy value chains in the target countries
  • Analysis of the economic and non-economic barriers to the market uptake of the selected sustainable bioenergy technologies; and development of strategies to remove the aforementioned barriers, including identification of roles and responsibilities of relevant stakeholders
  • Encourage European farmers to produce non-food bioenergy carriers and capacity building of economic actors and other relevant stakeholders for setting up sustainable bioenergy supply chains
