The REFUEL project, a report commissioned by the EU's Intelligent Energy Europe program to examine the biofuels potential in Europe, concludes that EU biofuels targets can be met with conventional feedstocks and current technology without major agricultural land use changes or environmental consequences. The two-year REFUEL-project is coordinated by the Energy research Center of the Netherlands, and implemented by a consortium of seven European institutes with different disciplinary backgrounds.

The role of the Central and Eastern European countries will be pivotal, as this region has most of the feedstock potential.
