Abstract

European bioenergy network, EUBIONET 2 was established in 2005 and it concentrates on biofuel markets and fuel supply chains in Europe. The EUBIONET 2 is a two year project funded by EU in the framework of Intelligent Energy - Europe Programme. The project aims to give a clear outlook of the current and future biomass fuel market trends in Europe; provide feedback on the suitability of CEN 335 biofuel standards for trading of biofuels; give well-analysed estimation on techno-economic potential of the biomass fuel volumes to the year 2010 based on the existing studies and experts' opinions; enhance biomass fuel trade and technology transfer by networking of different actors; analyse, select and describe the most suitable trading and business models for small and large scale biofuel supply chains for heat and power production by taking into account the environmental aspects and sustainability; enhance biomass use by co-operation and information dissemination with different market actors in the fuel-utilisation chain.
