The research project discusses the variety of acceptance positions regarding biofuel production, provision and use in most different stakeholder groups (associations, economy research and others) as well as sustainable production options for biofuels – aiming at recommendations for a biofuel strategy.
The project aims at the development of recommendations for a biofuel strategy that has prospects of acceptance by crucial stakeholders and users and an integrated market access for biofuels. Besides the identification of pilot projects in sustainable production and use, indicators of social sustainability are discussed. Accounting for stakeholders' positions, potentials of future communication and cooperation amongst and between the different bio-fuel related sectors will be investigated.
The FG-UPSY is concerned with analysing and comparing crucial stakeholders’ positions and communication regarding bio-fuel in Germany and focuses on optimisation potentials and interventions.
The DBFZ does research on sustainable concepts of biofuel production – looking for positive and negative examples. Furthermore, the FG-UPSY is supported in exploring the stakeholder constellations and framing conditions in terms of bio-fuel production and use.
