International Expert Workshop "10 times more renewable fuels"

Worldwide, the demand for renewable fuels for sustainable mobility is increasing enormously. In the last 20 years, production could be expanded to about 4 EJ of renewable fuels. According to scenarios of IRENA and IEA, by 2050 it must be about 32 to 58 EJ; on average a tenfold of today's production. Experts from IEA Bioenergy TCP Task 39 and IEA AMF, as well as representatives from Germany, will present their views and invite to a joint discussion.

We invite all interested parties to participate on October 24, 2023 from 12 to 7 p.m. at the DBFZ in Leipzig for the international expert workshop and the option to visit the pilot plant at the DBFZ.

We look forward to seeing you!
