Abstract [en]

A number of different technologies for producing renewable motor fuels have been studied; some effects of applying CO2 capture to the production of renewable motor fuels are shown in this article. Some of the technologies studied are well suited for CO2 capture. However, it is shown that these technologies' CO, capture advantages are not enough to offset their shortcomings described in previous studies, which show that the largest sustainable CO2 reduction from biomass in Sweden may be achieved by producing fuel pellets for coal substitution or using the biomass in combined heat and power plants. A conclusion of this article is that even with CO2 capture added to the respective technology, it is inefficient to use renewable resources for motor fuel production. Therefore, the high Swedish subsidies of the production of motor fuels appear sub-optimal, also when the possibility of CO2 capture is considered. Nevertheless, incorporating CO2 capture in the production of renewable motor fuels from biomass might be a cost effective way of reducing CO2 emissions.
