The main objectives of the RENEW project were the provision of the scientific and technological basis for the transition to sustainable and environmentally friendly road transport based on renewable fuels. The goals of the project were: (1) to investigate and develop a broad spectrum of pathways for the production of fuels for transport means; (2) to make the necessary technologies for production, distribution and use of renewable fuels available at pilot scale and to provide the scientific and technological basis for market decisions; (3) to assess, optimise and compare the respective processes in detail with regard to large-scale implementation and related socio-economic effects at EU level and to draw strategic conclusions for mastering an early transition into an affordable and sustainable transportation system; (4) to assess the energy chains, the costs and emissions of CO2 and GHG by well to tank LCA analysis and to provide the basis for achieving a cost target of 0.7 €/litre diesel equivalent within the subsequent demonstration phase of the best selected technologies. Based on an understanding among relevant players in industry, SME, agriculture, research, etc., RENEW had the vision to develop commonly agreed strategic recommendations concerning the technological and market potential of different fuels and their production technologies.
