Are biofuels a sustainable – and scalable – solution?

Innovation Forum would like to invite you to take part in our discussion-based webinar: Are biofuels a sustainable – and scalable – solution?

Join us for an hour of interactive discussion with United Airlines, SkyNRG, WBCSD and IINAS on how businesses are taking steps to mitigate their carbon footprint using biofuels.

The webinar will take place on 27th March from 14.00-15.00 GMT. If you can’t make the time, sign up anyway and we’ll send you a recording.

Companies worldwide use ships, planes, trains and trucks to move their goods (and people) around. The transportation sector is the biggest contributor to global energy-related CO2 emissions (around 28%), meaning there is much pressure on the industry to limit and reduce their carbon footprints.

This 60 minute webinar will discuss the sustainability of biofuels and who will be using them by 2025 and beyond. We’ll cover the key sustainability issues, debate the scale challenge, and look at how and whether biofuels will play a major role in carbon reduction for business.

We’ll also look at:

Biofuels in Europe – the focus around sustainability, and cost
Biofuels for transport: Importance for long-haul trucks, shipping and aviation
Biogas and biomethane: Is this the future of transport fuels?
