New tool to improve the sustainability of the transport sector

There is no single fuel solution for the future and therefore other alternatives based on the global combination of alternative fuels need to be explored. That is why BIOLCA has been developed. It is a tool that helps to specify, select and encourage more sustainable fuels, and has been developed through a Basque consortium in which TECNALIA is participating.»
