Ukraine has a significant potential for the production of liquid biofuels for the transport sector: biodiesel, bioethanol, biomethane.
The greatest effect of decarbonization of the sector can be achieved through the use of advanced biofuels (2nd generation biofuels), i.e. those produced from non-food or feedstock. A full list of raw materials is available in the article.
?Today, we are talking mainly about biodiesel and 1st generation bioethanol, as the technologies for producing advanced biofuels from lignocellulosic raw materials are not yet sufficiently developed in the country.
The EU Directive 2018/2001 on renewable energy sources (RED II) limits the share of 1st generation liquid biofuels in achieving renewable energy consumption targets for transport. The share of such biofuels in a particular EU country may be no more than 1% higher than the share of these biofuels in the gross final energy consumption of road and rail transport in that country in 2020, but no more than 7%.
