Advanced biofuels study. Strategic directions for Australia: summary report

This report summarises findings of the Advanced Biofuels Study, identifies priority pathways for the industry and recommends the role Government should undertake in order to facilitate the establishment of an advanced biofuels (ABF) industry. More detailed research and analysis of ABF technologies, feedstock options and economics is contained in an Appendix, which should be read in conjunction with this report.

The report sits in the context of an industry that is still in an early stage of development, with activity to date centred on ethanol and biodiesel production.

Advanced biofuels are defined as liquid fuels derived from sustainable sources of organic matter that do not typically compete with food production, such as wood residues, certain oilseeds, and algae.
