BioSata is a biofuel project of Helsinki Region Transport (HSL) and the City of Helsinki Stara Construction Service that seeks a gradual conversion to biofuel operation of Helsinki Metropolitan Area bus transport and Stara vehicles and machinery.
High-quality biofuels are a cost-effective option for reducing traffic emissions. No new vehicles or distribution infrastructure will be required for their use.
UPM Biofuels is part of a three-year project co-ordinated by the Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT) that seeks to increase the share of biofuels in combustion engines to at least 50 per cent in 2017 and 70-90 per cent in 2019.
BioSata is the largest co-ordinated demonstration project for advanced biofuels in Europe.
