CSIRO creates sustainable fuels forum

CALTEX, the Biofuels Association of Australia and the South Australian and Victorian governments are among the members of the CSIRO's newly formed Future Fuels Forum (FFF).

CSIRO creates sustainable fuels forum

Emissions trading, future fuels and international oil supply are some of the factors that will be discussed as the forum examines the main challenges for Australia in arriving at a secure and sustainable transport fuel mix for road, rail, air and sea to 2050.

"Cost effective transport underpins our lifestyles and economy. We need to start work now to ensure the sector can continue to deliver its many benefits and address its environmental impact along with other important issues relating to fuel security and supply," said Dr John Wright, director of the CSIRO Energy Transformed National Research Flagship.

The FFF will provide input to decision makers in industry and government on strategic policy and future investment.

It will draw on the expertise of forum participants and use economic modelling technology to map out future scenarios.

"We expect some healthy debate that will result in the development of a diverse set of scenarios for Australia's fuel and transport future," Dr Wright said.

A report will be released on the FFF's findings in June.
