Worldwide, the use of transport fuel derived from biomass increased four-fold between 2003 and 2012. Mainly based on food resources, these conventional biofuels did not achieve the expected emission savings and contributed to higher prices for food commod - ities, especially maize and oilseeds. Advanced biofuels based on forest biomass are not yet being produced on a large scale, but are expected to have a better life-cycle emission profile than conventional biofuels. The pathways from feedstock to advanced biofuel are diverse in respect to capacity, technology and final product. Three promising conversion technologies are presented below: pyrolysis, biochemical conversion and gasification
