In an effort to better prioritise, co-ordinate and implement future research and development of biofuels, the Commission invited a group of high level experts representing widely different sectors of the biofuel chain. The mission of this group was to develop a foresight report - a vision for biofuels up to 2030 and beyond, which should address all the issues that are relevant to ensure a breakthrough of biofuels and increase their deployment in the EU. In this report, the group, called the Biofuels Research Advisory Council (BIOFRAC), describes a vision for 2030. It is based on the members' past experience, current practice and future expectations. The vision does not mean to carve in stone a roadmap, or to elicit the setting of a target. Rather, it lays out the challenges ahead and suggests what it would take to meet them. Within this ambit, the vision report lays the foundations for a Strategic Research Agenda. It also recommends the creation of a European Technology Platform for Biofuels that will elaborate and implement this research agenda.
