2020 Biofuels Issue

Transport is a top priority for decarbonisation strategies. But the transition to electric transport is not enough: alternative fuels, especially biofuels and hydrogen, will play a key role in the next decade. Alexandru Floristean of Hydrogen Europe and Elisabetta Tola write about it, among others, in a dense number of inquiries and interviews on the future of the transport system.
