Material efficiency is a key factor in making advanced biofuels, with solutions based on the use of waste and residues, enabling increasingly sustainable fuel production without compromising global food production or biodiversity. Renewable wood-based biofuels can substantially reduce transport emissions while maintaining sustainable production methods.
We benefit from the lifecycle of wood-based biomass with optimal efficiency. As a raw material, wood provides a very good starting point, as evidenced by the renewable BioVerno fuel made from a residue of pulp production at UPM. We are also developing new raw material concepts based on sustainable land use with low risk of causing indirect land use change.
