16 AGRICULTURE IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC AND IN THE USA – STATE OF GEORGIA Prague, Biofuels standardization Biofuels as well as conventional motor fuels have to reach a high minimum level to be acceptable for car manufacturers and combustion motors. Biofuels have to meet requirements for high quality and to be prepared for developing according to automotive and motor technique needs. Directive of the EU 2009/30/EC, April 2009 as regards the specification of petrol, diesel and gas-oil and the introduction of a mechanism to monitor and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the use of read transport fuels and amending council Directive 1999/32/EC, as regards the specification of fuel used by inland waterway vessels and repealing Directive 93/12/ECC

20 AGRICULTURE IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC AND IN THE USA – STATE OF GEORGIA Prague, Sustainability is key for biofuel Industry Everyone is talking about sustainability – sustainable energy, sustainable food, sustainable economy. It makes sense. We are living large, and if we could only sustain our current way of life, how great would that be? CO 2 balance = competitive factor! Engine technology as limit

21 Prague, The biofuels policy define certain criteria for a sustainable production of biofuel feedstock EU Renewable Directive 2009/28/EC, April 2009 Requirements on the sustainable production of the used biomass feedstock Biofuels shall not be made from raw material obtained from land with: 1. High carbon stock i.e. wetlands and continuously forested areas with trees higher than 5 m and a canopy cover of more than 30%, or trees able to reach these thresholds in situ, 2. Recognized biodiversity value The feedstock production has to follow the standards of cross compliance or comparable and accepted standardss Requirements on the minimum GHG mitigation potential At least 35% GHG savings compared to fossil based fuels since 2013, 50% since 2017, 60% since AGRICULTURE IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC AND IN THE USA – STATE OF GEORGIA

22 Prague, Second generation biofuels and synthetic fuels At present, BTL (biomass to liquid) fuels are the subject of various R & D projects and 2nd generation biofuels. Despite all the excitement in the media about next generation biofuels, it is self-evident that we are at the very early stages of the development process. Politicians around the world are acknowledging the barriers to entry and have brought forward a number of incentives to overcome them.

23 AGRICULTURE IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC AND IN THE USA – STATE OF GEORGIA Prague, The Energy Act of 2007 in the United States is a prime example of this. This is the most explicit growth related program for next generation biofuels there currently is. As early as 2010, the US Congress has provided for the distribution of 100 mln gallons of cellulosic alcohol in the market. The share of cellulosic ethanol is set to rise at an accelerating rate to reach 16 bln gallons (60 bln litres, 48 mln tonnes) of fuels by By then, production of cellulosic alcohol will be greater than the output of the corn ethanol industry, which has been capped a 15 bln gallons. Second generation biofuels and synthetic fuels

24 AGRICULTURE IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC AND IN THE USA – STATE OF GEORGIA Prague, The EU renewable fuels directive has a similar focus. Next generation biofuels have the advantage of more significat greenhouse gas savings and therefore the Commissions proposal foresees that nextgen biofuels will count double against the 2020 production target. Another key policy component is the development of biorefinering. Second generation biofuels and synthetic fuels

25 AGRICULTURE IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC AND IN THE USA – STATE OF GEORGIA Prague, Next generation biofuels Research activities of the Czech Republic in this sphere are not comprehensive, but for the time being there are aimed at the particular operations of technological process: Feedstock cultivation Hydro-treatment of vegetable oils Lignocellulose utilisation Biobuthanol Thermal depolymerization Flash pyrolysis Hydrotreating, hydroprocessing However, this process can be improved considerably by means of international cooperation and exchange of information.

26 AGRICULTURE IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC AND IN THE USA – STATE OF GEORGIA Prague, B100 – powered jet completes flight Green Flight International successfully completed a biodiesel-powered transcontinental flight across the United States on Nov. 1. Beginning in Reno, New., and concluding in Leesburg, Fla., the flight lasted 11 hours and 13 minutes, reaching altitudes of 13,000 to 17,000 feet. Source: Biodiesel Magazine, January, 2009 According to Douglas Rodante, Green Flight chief executive officer, 1,776 miles of the flight were fueled by B100. The remaining 710 miles of the flight were powered by a mixture of 50 percent biodiesel and 50 percent jet fuel. A 1968 L29 Delphin, a single engine military jet aircraft built in Czechoslovakia, was used to complete the flight. „We didn`t have any problems with cold flow properties in this aircraft because of the design,“ Rodante said. Engine oil runs through an area surrounding the fuel filter, heating the fuel going through the filter. The heated fuel is circulated back through the fuel tanks. „Our fuel temperature on the flight was 27 degree Celsius (80 degrees Fahrenheit) and that was up and over 17,000 feed,“ he said. According to Rodante, only slight engine adjustments had to be made in order to run the L29 Delphin on B100. „If we used a B20 blend in a modern aircraft, I don`t think there would be any modifications that need to be done,“ he said.

27 AGRICULTURE IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC AND IN THE USA – STATE OF GEORGIA Prague, Conclusion Biodiesel, bioethanol and in future BTL are the key alternatives for oil, gas and coal to reduce CO 2 in transport sector. Feedstock availability, energy efficiency and land use are the drivers towards BTL technologies. BTL will complete the overall fuel mix together with 1st generation biofuels in future.

28 Conclusion Synergies among agricultural enterprises, biodiesel producers and refineries Lowering of GHG emissions in the long-term perspective in accordance with criteria of sustainability for biomass growing and biofuels production Prague, AGRICULTURE IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC AND IN THE USA – STATE OF GEORGIA
