The BIOFUELS-2G project received the award of the Best LIFE projects for 2013 during the annual EU Green Week on June 6th 2014




Substituting biofuels for fossil fuels has the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, the amount of carbon dioxide generated in the production of the biofuel should not cancel out any relative savings that might result from its use. Second generation biofuels are seen as a solution in this respect, because they are produced from waste products generated from other processes.
