Final Report - BIOTOP (Biofuels Assessment on Technical Opportunities and Research Needs for Latin America)

Project ID: 213320
Funded under: FP7-ENERGY

Abstract

This is the final report for the BIOTOP project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The main aim of BIOTOP was to create and support Research and technology development (RTD) cooperation activities in the biofuel sector between Latin America (LA) and the European Union (EU). Various studies on the biofuel sector in LA were elaborated and provided a basis for the identification of research needs and cooperation opportunities. The BIOTOP consortium, consisting of five European and five Latin American partner institutions, identified these needs and opportunities in dedicated work packages on improved conversion technologies, standardisation and trade, as well as on sustainability. Scenarios on biofuels research were elaborated contributing to the development of policy and research recommendations. Finally, the project partners disseminated the project by different means, including the organisation of three EU-LA cooperation workshops, study tours and final conference.
