Advanced biofuels – a key “Green Transition” contributor
Norway has a defined target of becoming a low-emission country by 2050. Achieving this target is referred to as “the Green Transition” and involves replacing polluting products and services with alternatives that are climate and environment-friendly.
For you as a consumer, established habits may be challenging to alter. The goods you purchase must be transported so that they are available to customers. When you need to travel, your car or the bus heading to town are natural options. If you plan to go abroad, the most efficient way of travel is still by plane. Transport is a considerable source of pollution. Despite the recent rise of alternative energy sources (electricity, hydrogen, etc.) for the transport sector, the need for hydrocarbon-based fuels will still pertain. Our project will contribute to the replacement of fossil fuels with renewable, sustainable, advanced biofuel.
The year by which Norway shall be a low-emission country
The biofuel mandate for renewable fuels currently set by Norwegian authorities
This is the share of all energy required by the EU to be from renewable sources in 2020
The increasing renewable share
24.5 percent of the fuel used for transport on Norwegian roads is currently required to be sourced from renewable materials. The mandate for the Green Transition will entail an increase in this percentage towards 2030. Advanced biofuels from our project sourced from the Norwegian forests will play an important role in the new, circular economy.
Making use of residuals
Our Amli production plant will use new and innovative technology developed by Shell. The IH2® technology provides high energy efficiency, and the manufacturing process is both a competitive and environment-friendly alternative. By use of the IH2® novel production technology, Biozin Holding AS will make use of low-quality logs and residues from the forestry and by-products from the sawmill industry to manufacture renewable and sustainable biofuels.
