Project summary

The BIKE Project aims at supporting the implementation of Directive (EU) 2018/2001 on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources (RED II Directive) by providing scientific evidence for the market potential of low ILUC-risk value chains for biomass, biofuels and bioliquids in Europe. It develops a full sustainability assessment and a certification module for the low ILUC-risk value chains, and guidelines and recommendations to promote their large-scale replication.

AKI contributes to the evaluation of biomass supply options meeting the criteria set out in the RED II Directive, and to the development and implementation of an ISCC add-on for the certification of biofuels from low ILUC-risk feedstock. AKI participates in the assessment of the existing infrastructure and biofuel processing plants, and of the potential for large-scale deployment of flagships and FoaK plants converting low-ILUC feedstock into advanced biofuels. By evaluating the legal, institutional, and political framework, AKI helps in formulating policy recommendations to boost the market uptake of low ILUC-risk biomass, biofuels and bioliquids.
