Stakeholder consultation is an essential component of this project. ILUC is a controversial topic and quantifying ILUC effects is difficult and highly debated.. The consortium aims to perform the project in a transparent and inclusive way, involving stakeholders throughout the project.
Relevant project documentation is circulated among a wide range of stakeholders, all of which are invited to submit comments, questions or suggestions to the project mailbox ILUC@ecofys.com. Several rounds of meetings have been organised with stakeholders in the ethanol supply chain, biodiesel supply chain, advanced biofuels producers and NGOs:
- November 2013: presentation of the project and suggestions of improvements for the model,
- February 2014: discussion on selection of improvement, baseline assumption and scenario design.
Minutes of the past meetings are available here.
