Research: Method development conducted on the security of supply and circularity of transport biofuels

Senior researcher and SFL vice-director Mark Sanctuary was part of a report published earlier this year which analyzed the findings of the project ‘Security of supply and circularity of transport biofuels – method development’. This report was the result of a project conducted within the Renewable transportation fuels and systems program, a collaborative research effort between the Swedish Energy Agency and f3: The Swedish Knowledge Centre for Renewable Transportation Fuels, looking into developing methods to enable the quantification of the benefits of security of supply and circularity for transportation fuels.

The purpose of the project was to develop methods to enable quantification of the benefits of security of supply and circularity for transportation fuels. Important, as methods to quantify this benefit have been lacking –  making it previously not possible to accurately value its effects and therefore its benefits. 

Furthermore, the results have been combined with current methodology to assess climate benefit, in terms of GHG-emission reductions, to arrive at a combined value for the evaluated fuels, including all three indicators of: security of supply, circularity and climate benefit.

The main results from this study are the first real attempt to develop methodology to quantify societal benefits stemming from circularity and security of supply, and the development and implementation of these new methods is thus described in this report.
