The increasing contribution of biofuels to energy security

  • Biomethane, produced from a range of feed stocks such as organic waste materials, can be injected to the natural gas grid and has shown to be far superior to first generation liquid biofuels such as biodiesel.
  • Roadmaps developed by the International Energy Agency (IEA), at the request of the G8, suggest that by 2050, these biofuels will provide 27% of world transport fuel. For a country to have renewable gas industries, a renewable gas laboratory is a requirement.
  • Strong and balanced policy efforts are required to create a stable investment environment  and allow commercialisation of advanced biofuel technologies, efficiency improvements and production cost reductions. International collaboration and discussions are critical to achieve these goals.
