Biofuels Assessment on Technical Opportunities
and Research Needs for Latin America (BioTop)

Project website

The objective of the BioTop Project was to identify opportunities and needs for improved first and second generation biofuel conversion technologies in Latin America. BioTop created and supported specific Research and Technology Development (RTD) cooperation between Latin America and Europe.

BioTop was implemented by a consortium of 10 partners from Europe and Latin America, including Risoe National Laboratory for Sustainable Development at the Technical University of Denmark (Risoe DTU), one of URC's parent organizations.

Within the Project, Risoe DTU was responsible for:

  • Survey women’s participation in the RTD field of biofuels in Latin American countries;
  • Asses tools for sustainable biomass production; and,
  • Develop scenarios and roadmaps for biofuel RTD in Latin America.
