The Advanced Biofuels Coalition LSB promotes EU regulations related to the uptake of advanced biofuels in EU policies.
The Advanced Biofuels Coalition LSB has appointed Marko Janhunen, Public Affairs Director at UPM as the chair of the coalition for 2022. LSB represents 10 companies from eight countries.
“This is a critically important year for our industry. Member States are currently putting in place advanced biofuel mandates based on the Renewable Energy Directive. The EU Commission’s proposal on Fit for 55 is creating a sense of urgency on the need to accelerate reduction of transport emissions. We know advanced biofuels are an increasingly important part of the solution and our coalition wants to be very engaged in these discussions so that sustainable green growth investments can be secured,” Marko Janhunen states.
Advanced biofuels made from wastes and residues as defined in the Renewable Energy Directive Annex IX Part A are a sustainable solution to reduce emissions in transport, including also harder to decarbonise transport modes such as aviation, maritime and heavy-duty transport. Since the adoption of REDII in 2018, several investments have moved forward and are contributing to the EU’s goal of achieving dramatic reduction in transport CO2 emissions.
The Advanced Biofuels Coalition also appointed two Vice Chairs: Linda Werner, Renewable Fuels Manager, St1 and Erich Cuaz, Head of Government Affairs & Advocacy, Clariant.
The Advanced Biofuels Coalition LSB strongly supports the EU target for climate-neutrality by 2050 and the need for more ambitious 2030 intermediate targets.

Advanced biofuels are a fast-track solution to decarbonizing transport. LSB is a coalition of leading advanced biofuels technology developers and producers committed to making a significant contribution to meeting the EU ambitions of decarbonizing the transport sector. Advanced biofuels bring multiple benefits in terms of CO2 reduction, investments, revenues for farmers and forest owners, improved waste management practices, job creation and an increase in energy security.
