1 TFI PK5 TFI PK-bio ”Hållbara biobränslen” ”Sustainable Bio-fuels” Background and status of the sub-programme TRI Annual Conference Copenhagen, Jakob Kr. Kristjánsson, Arkea - VC Investments Leader of the sub-programme committee TFI PK-bio: MF & JKK (9/2010)

2 Bio-fuels in Europe – present targets In 2005 – 2%. Reality was 1%. In 2010 – 5.75%. Now far away from goal. Would need 20% of land but only ca. 7% is available Nordic countries have a lot of forest land available In 2020 – 10% binding minimum of biofuels Total renewable energy of 20% Reducing CO2 by 20% Energy savings by 20% Major challenges: Technology, logistics, land for non-food etc.

3 PK-bio and PK-bio activities PK-members From all five Nordic countries One ordinary + one deputy member per country Work method Physical meetings (5 meetings so far) Telephone meetings (3 telephone meeting so far) Collaboration Active participation by all member Efficient, constructive and problem-free work progress

4 PK-bio sub-programme scope & limitations Thematic area Raw material: ligno-cellulose based feed stocks Processes: bio- and/or thermo-chemical conversion technologies End-products: liquid and/or gaseous bio-fuels

6 PK-bio call for proposals 2010 Call details Integrated projects Two phase application process Max 30 M NOK for project financing Max 10 M NOK/project, max 75 % TFI-financing

7 Application Phase I (”pre-applications”) Call open Pre-application dead-line pre-application Applying for 244 M NOK (of 342 M NOK) In general high quality (only very few weak or of low interest) Internal evaluation by PK-bio-members Consensus screening without any problems applications from phase I -> phase II Success-rate (by number, phase I -> II) for applicants 32 %

8 Application phase II (”full applications”) Full application dead-line full applications (as invited to phase II) Applying for 89 M NOK (of 131 M NOK) Evaluation by external international non-Nordic experts In general of high quality (i.e. “Top-level Research”) Grades 3-4-5: Projects in ”top-category” Grades 2-3-4: Projects weaker or less interesting than average Final selection by sub-programme committee –Four projects to finance –Final success-rate 13 % (by number and by budget)

9 “Success rate” for applications (number) ApplicationsPhase IPhase II Selected Phase I->II 32 % 13 %

10 Selected projects ( ) 1) ”BioEng”, –Project leader: NTNU, Norway –Participants from Denmark, Norway and Sweden –TFI-financing 4,4 M NOK (53 % of 8,3 M NOK) 2) ”HGBiofuels” –Project leader: Chalmers University, Sweden –Participants from Demark, Norway and Sweden –TFI-financing 6,2 M NOK (75 % of 8,3 M NOK) 3) ”NORD-SYNGAS” –Project leader: VTT, Finland –Participants from Finland, Norway and Sweden –TFI-financing 9,4 M NOK (54 % of 17,4 M NOK) 4) ”SusBioFuel” –Project leader: SINTEF, Norway –Participants from all Nordic countries –TFI-financing 9,3 M NOK (74 % of 12,5 M NOK)

11 Project portfolio (4 projects) Research focus: –BioEng: bio-fuel influence on reliability and emissions –HGBiofuels: bio-ethanol and –butanol –NORD-SYNGAS: thermo-chemical gasification –SusBioFuel: bio-ethanol Industry involvement: –active involvement in work and financing –13,1 M NOK contribution from industry partners Project type: –Main focus on basic research and development

12 Concrete near-future plans Contract signing –Between Nordic Energy Research and project owners –Finalization in September Internal project start-up –Autumn 2010 Common PK-kick-off-meeting –September 17. –With main project participants Project follow-up –Written reports –Annual meetings with PK-bio & project participants
