Title: BP Biofuels

BP Biofuels
a growing alternative
Name Bob Saunders Title Russian Standards
Conference, DBERR, 14th Nov 2008
  • CEN Structure for developing Biofuels specs
  • Work Programme for development of Biofuel specs
  • Drivers for Bio-fuel standards
  • Justification for Industry participation
  • Impact on Suppliers
  • Sustainability standards for Bio-fuels

Committee of European Norms
  • European Commission Mandate
  • CEN (Technical Committees)
  • National Standards Bodies

Trade Associations
Consumer Groups NGOs
National Governments
Industrial Companies
Structure of Technical Committee 19
  • Gaseous Liquid fuels specs test methods for
    both fossil and renewable fuels
  • Over 30 Working Groups but key WGs are
  • WG 21 Gasoline specification
  • Task Force Bio-Ethanol
  • Task Force E85
  • WG 23 Autogas specification
  • WG 24 Diesel Specification
  • Task Force Bio-diesel
  • WG 25 Light Heating Fuel specification
  • Others investigate and develop appropriate Test

Current Specs Work Programme
  • EN 228 Gasoline spec WG 21
  • already allows 5 bio-ethanol
  • developing 10 spec due 2010
  • Developing E 85 links with ethanol TF
  • EN 590 Diesel spec WG 24
  • Already allows 5 FAME
  • B7 spec is currently out for consultation, due to
    publish Aug 09
  • B10 is on the work programme
  • EN 14214 Bio-diesel spec (FAME)
  • Working on improving Test Methods particularly
    thermal stability
  • EN 14213 FAME for Heating Fuels dormant
  • EN 15376 Bio-ethanol specification

Global Harmonisation of Biofuel Specs
  • Initiative of European, US and Brazilian
    Governments, Feb 2007
  • Work programme
  • Establish contact with experts in the regions
  • Exchange specifications and test methods
  • Compared test methods and highlight difference in
  • Compared specifications and listed in 3
  • A similar
  • B different but could be harmonised
  • C different and too difficult to harmonise
  • White Paper published early 2008
  • Conference planned in Rio de Janeiro Jan 09,
    share results and develop next steps

Drivers for Change
  • Key drivers in moving towards sustainable
    mobility solutions
  • Security of supply energy diversification
  • Climate change issues
  • Biofuels address both these issues.

Drivers for Biofuel Standards
  • Political
  • European Commission to aid implementation of
  • Biofuel Directive sets aspirational targets
  • Fuel Quality Dir. sets GHG reduction targets on
    transport fuel suppliers
  • Renewable Energy Dir. sets mandatory targets on
    transport fuels
  • Protect the consumer (Industry customers)
  • Minimise operational problems
  • Performance
  • Safety
  • Environmental
  • Develop a market

Industry perspective
  • Justification for Industry Participation
  • All stakeholders need to be engaged
  • Maximise benefits for industry
  • Protect interests of industry product liability
  • Protect Customers
  • Impact on Suppliers
  • Legal specs in some countries
  • Commoditises product
  • Allows free movement of goods within Europe
  • Consistency of feedstocks and products
  • Reducing costs

Bio-fuel Sustainability Standards
  • Background
  • UK with Dutch governments developed
    Environmental standards for biofuels
  • Dutch govt mandated NEN to propose the
    development of European std through CEN
  • RED/FQD will include sustainability principles
    and criteria, therefore need for common standards

Recent CEN Biofuel Initiative
  • Created a new Technical Committee May 08 TC
  • Already met twice with the support of 14 member
    states so far
  • Convenor elected Dutch academic prof Helias Udo
    de Haes
  • Title agree Sustainably produced biomass for
    energy applications
  • Expert Working Group structure
  • WG 1 Terminology
  • WG 2 GHG methodology
  • WG 3 Environmental sustainability incl
  • WG 4 Social and economic issues
  • WG 5 Auditing and verification
  • WG 6 Indirect effects
