Historical biofuel industry analysis – lessons for the future.

APAC has documented a historical analysis of the ‘turbulent’ Australian biofuel industry between 2006 to 2023, in a series of AUSTRALIAN BIOFUELS reports (documented below).  These reports contain the only independent detail analysis of developments, policy changes, grants ‘success’, feedstock analysis, economics, the rise and fall of industry plants, highlighting the policy (State and Federal) successes and failures over this period.

There are many lessons that can be learnt as Australia advances into the ‘new’ SAF/HVO biofuel era in Australia in 2024 onwards.
