An increased use of biofuels (Vegetable Oil, Biodiesel, Bioethanol, Biogas) can contribute greatly to reducing environmental pollution from transport. However, there are still relatively few people and companies that use biofuels for their vehicles. One of the reasons for this is a lack of awareness and insufficient knowledge about these fuels.
The main objectives of the BIOMOTION Project were to increase the use, knowledge and acceptance of biofuels by providing information, motivation, cluster building and supporting regional implementation strategies.
The BIOMOTION Project gathered information on the production and use of biofuels through its tour in the different participating regions. It then gathered this information for analysis by expert cluster groups and storage in the Biofuel Network.
The BIOMOTION Project produced the following results:
- It created and established an expert cluster to bring the results gathered in the partaking regions to the transnational Biofuels Network;
- It created and established seven Biofuel Information Centres, one in each participating region;
- It initiated and supported best practise examples;
- It motivated biofuel use through conducting its BioMotion-Tour;
- It established value added chains for rural areas 'from field to tank'.
This project promoted more sustainable development.
