Public perception and social acceptance of new technologies and products play an important role in market diffusion and full-scale commercialisation. The workshop aims to instigate discussion on various aspects of hybrid fuel production as being developed the project BioMates with funding from Horizon2020 (Grant Agreement No 727463) to gauge public understanding and expectations of hybrid fuels. This activity will be run online over a two and a half-hour period, using the ZOOM online platform as a side event at the 29th EUBCE 2021.

The workshop will open with a brief introduction to the BioMates Project, and will then focus on two interactive sessions, where participants address questions around the sustainability of hybrid fuel value chains, and the risks and enablers of market diffusion. Participants will be recruited from stakeholders attending the EUBCE and from various sectors, including education and research, business, NGOs, investors, policy-makers, and public agencies. This will allow for a rich and lively discussion that will draw out varied perspectives on hybrid fuels that may help inform policy making and investment decisions.
