About BIOFIT

The overall aim of the BIOFIT project is to facilitate the introduction of bioenergy retrofitting in the following five industry sectors: first-generation biofuels, pulp and paper, fossil refineries, fossil firing power and combined heat and power plants.

More specifically, the objectives of the BIOFIT project are:

  • To develop 10 concrete proposals (Case Studies) for bioenergy retrofitting for each of the named industries, together with industry and market actors that are committed to implement BIOFIT results
  • To obtain an accurate and complete overview of options for bioenergy retrofitting in said industries, as well as insight in the conditions under which each type of bioenergy retrofit is feasible and communicate this to the target groups
  • To involve, engage and support stakeholders and market actors, especially from industry by communicating results, disseminating knowledge, providing opportunity for dialogue, and developing best practices and tools
  • To evaluate framework conditions (legal, institutional and political) to identify -generic and industry-specific - barriers and enablers
  • To provide advice to policy makers at national and regional level to serve as input for more informed policy, market support and financial frameworks
