The Scottish Biofuel Programme - Linking Scottish Business with Expertise in Biofuels

The Scottish Biofuel Programme (SBP) provides a wide range of expertise, engaging directly with small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the Scottish business sector, facilitating the conversion of biomass waste to energy; test and implement conversion of biomass waste to energy and the production of sustainable biofuels.

The Programme supports projects investigating diverse waste streams, and their conversion into biofuels.  Specifically, it offers expertise on biomass conversion to energy by anaerobic digestion, as well as conversion to biobutanol, bioethanol or biochar.  Feedstock analysis, carbon accounting, and opportunities afforded by cultivation of algae in waste streams are also part of the Programme. The SBP will work with you to tailor a solution specific to your needs.  Based on your business by-product or waste, the Programme will identify the right biofuel channel for you.

What we do for businesses:
The Scottish Biofuel Programme benefits companies by providing:

  • Analysis of waste streams, and identification of potential commercial opportunities.
  • Highlighting of financial and environmental gains.
  • Tailored advice on current legislation around biofuels and energy from waste.
  • Access to a £70k per year Development Fund.

The Scottish Biofuel Programme is a partnership: University of Abertay Dundee, Edinburgh Napier University, Edinburgh University, The Scottish Agricultural College and Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS).  The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund, the Scottish Government and Scottish Enterprise.
