Sweden-Based Biofuels Producer SEKAB Joins LSB
by Liz Gyekye (Biofuels International) Biofuels group Leaders of Sustainable Biofuels (LSB) has welcomed Swedish company SEKAB as its new member.
SEKAB is a producer of bio-based chemicals and biofuels and also commercialising in-house technologies to convert forestry and agriculture residues to cellulosic sugars, ethanol and lignin.
LSB is a coalition of leading advanced biofuels producers and technology developers committed to making a significant contribution to meeting the EU ambitions of decarbonizing the transport sector. Advanced biofuels bring multiple benefits in terms of CO2 reduction, investments, revenues for farmers and forestry, improvements in waste management, and an increase in energy security.
In a statement, LSB said it requested a dedicated target to be defined for advanced biofuels, as proposed by the European Commission in the form of Annex IX part A mandate, and the related feedstock list. “A specific advanced biofuels target based on unchanged Annex IXA is a must for creating investment and investor security for advanced biofuels based on complex but sustainable feedstock,” Janhunen said.
LSB will be working closely with the European Parliament and the Member States to provide factual information on the potential of advanced biofuels in the European Union. READ MORE
