The innovation cluster for sustainable biofuels

Innovation clusters for sustainable biofuels have as an overall goal to contribute to an actual and rapid conversion to renewable fuels, to increase the transport sector’s conditions to achieve climate and other sustainability goals by 2030 and 2045.

By developing collaboration, increasing knowledge and facilitating the development of new collaboration consortia, the cluster will contribute to lowering the barriers to increased use and resource-efficient production of sustainable biofuels in Sweden. The cluster will work with internal collaboration to identify obstacles and key issues as well as potential solutions; external dissemination of knowledge and communication in open channels aimed broadly at various societal actors; external monitoring and knowledge synthesis; and international cooperation. To date, 17 actors in the cluster, representing the business community (eg the forestry, fuel, automotive, freight and energy industries) have confirmed membership. The cluster will be led and coordinated by Chalmers Industriteknik.
