Biofuels production at low ILUC risk for European sustainable bioeconomy, is a Horizon 2020 project that supports the implementation of the Renewable Energy Directive II of the European Commission by providing evidence, measuring and widely disseminating the market potential of low ILUC risk value chains for biomass, biofuels and bioliquids in Europe.
Low ILUC risk
biofuels are produced in a way that mitigates ILUC (Indirect Land Use Change), either because they result from productivity increases or they come from crops grown on abandoned or severely degraded land.
The core activity of BIKE
is to investigate and to demonstrate the reliability of a series of low-ILUC risk biofuels production routes, assessing their environmental, social and economic sustainability. The project also aims to develop the first ever certification module for low ILUC risk biofuels and a to inform future policy and decision making.
Coordinated by RECORD-Renewable Energy Consortium for Research and Demonstration, BIKE is carried out by a consortium of:
13 partners from 8 European countries
including research organizations, industries, SMEs and international organizations.
