Biofuels are necessary to achieve the Dutch climate targets for the reduction of CO2 emissions. A growth in the volume of biofuels can also act as an accelerator for the use of biofuels in the chemical sector.
Biofuels are an emerging market. However, there is still a lot of unfamiliarity with the subject among the industry itself, among policy officers and in education. The (open) Learning Community Biofuels wants to help reduce this unfamiliarity. To achieve this, the Learning Community Biofuels creates a number of online interactive learning modules in which the different aspects of biofuels are discussed such as available biomass, biofuel production technologies and logistics.
In addition, knowledge exchange sessions are organized by the Learning Community Biofuels. During these sessions, knowledge and innovation questions from companies are also identified. For these questions it is examined whether they can be addressed in education and / or research projects.
