The IEA Bioenergy Task 39 Group released its end of year newsletter, which included a comprehensive  country profile for biofuels activity in The Netherlands, authored by John Neeft, Elke van Thuijl and Oliver May .

This target will mainly be met through the use of liquid biofuels, such as biodiesel and bioethanol. The main driver for biofuel policies in the Netherlands is to decrease GHG emissions from transport. For the Dutch government, guaranteeing the sustainability of biofuels for transport and biomass for electricity and heat production is an important condition of promoting the use of bioenergy in the Netherlands,” the authors note.
