Integration of waste-derived alternative fuels in Israel

Integration of waste-derived alternative fuels in Israel's transportation system

The world's transportation system is almost entirely based on oil-derived fuels, fed into internal combustion engines (ICE). Energy supply and demand markets – especially for transportation – are not economically unfettered and sustainable. According to the IEA, without targeted and active policies greenhouse gases and pollutants emissions from the energy sectors will more than double by 2050, all the while dealing with increasing fuels supply side difficulties and scarcity. The pathway to steer away from this future entails the dissemination of cleaner and more efficient transportation alternatives.
