To meet short term European 20-20-20 objectives and long term targets of European Energy Roadmap 2050. an energy paradigm shift is needed for wih biomass conversion into advanced biofeuls is essential. This new deal has challenges in catalyst development which so far hinders implementation at industrial level: Firstly, biomass is much more complex and reactive than conventional feedstock; secondly development of such catalysts is tranditionally done by lengthy empirical approaches.
