This event is organised in the framework of the project MUSIC ( supported by the European Commission within Horizon 2020.

The MUSIC project aims to facilitate market uptake of three types of intermediate bioenergy carriers (IBC’s: torrefied biomass, fast pyrolysis bio-oils, and microbial oil) by developing feedstock mobilisation strategies, improved logistics and IBC trade centres.

Biomass, such as agricultural or forest residues, can be processed into energetically denser, storable and transportable intermediary products analogous to coal, oil and gaseous fossil energy carriers. IBCs may replace fossil fuels in the energy (power & heat) production sector, the transport sector, within energy intensive industries (e.g. steel production) and for the production of bio-based materials. IBCs contribute to energy security, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and provide a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels in Europe.

This workshop will present and discuss the outlook for advanced biofuels to decarbonize maritime transport with a special focus on the prospects of using pyrolysis oil-based fuels. Speakers will represent  different actors within the sustainable shipping eco-system.
