Myth: If it is bio it is all good

Julia Hansson, Researcher, IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute / Chalmers University


Dr Julia Hansson at IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute and Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden aims to provide perspectives on future bioenergy use and trade and renewable fuels for transport in a European policy context using energy system and policy analysis.

About the speech:

The production and use of transportation fuels can lead to environmental as well as social and socio-economic impacts, and assessing them simultaneously is a challenge. The presentation will discuss the potential for assessing the sustainability performance of biofuels and fossil transportation fuels in a fully integrated way using life cycle sustainability assessment. Is it a useful tool for sustainability assessment?
