The major objective of IEA Bioenergy Task 42 for 2010 – 2012 is to assess the worldwide position and potential of the biorefinery field, and to gather new insides that will indicate the possibilities to come to new breakthrough, competitive, sustainable, safe and eco-efficient processing routes for the simultaneous manufacture of transportation fuels, (CH)power, food, feed, and added-value bio-based products (chemicals, materials).

The information provided can be used by national and international governmental organisations to develop bioenergy-related policies, industrial stakeholders for focusing their RTD and deployment strategies on the most promising (i.e. sustainable) biomass value chains, NGOs to be included into their renewable energy scenarios, and research institutes and universities to focus their applied and strategic research programmes.
