The Mission of the European Biofuels Technology Platform is to contribute to:
bulletthe development of cost-competitive world-class biofuels value chains,
bulletto the creation of a healthy biofuels industry, and
bulletto accelerate the sustainable deployment of biofuels in the EU

through a process of guidance, prioritisation and promotion of research, technology development and demonstration.

The European Biofuels Technology Platform is supervised by a Steering Committee. The activities are carried out by the members of Four Working Groups. Member State representation is now mainly provided through the EC Steering Group for Strategic Energy Technologies. There is also liaison with national biofuels platforms and bioenergy associations. The EBTP is supported by a Secretariat that receives partial financial support from the European Commission under FP7 Grant Agreement Number 241269.
