Abstract [en]

Our modern society is in many ways built with and dependent on fossil fuels, which are used for energy production as well as for transporting humans and goods. Without the oil, many of the things we take for granted would not be possible. During the last century, the use of oil has increased steadily and will probably keep increasing as the world population and the economic well-being for many people increase. Since the oil is a finite resource, we will have to find other fuels that can replace it if we want to keep the same rate of development in the future as the availability of petrol fuels will decrease with rising prices as a result. Furthermore, fossil fuels have the disadvantage that they produce harmful emissions when combusted and thus affect the climate and air quality locally and globally. In this report we present a number of renewable fuels which could work as substitutes for diesel as fuel for trucks. The alternatives are evaluated along the three dimensions of sustainable development in a qualitative and a quantitative analysis. The result of the study shows that it will be difficult to completely replace the diesel with renewable fuels by 2030, but that the best alternative available today is biogas, which should be focused on for further development.
