ACFA was created in 2000 as a not-for-profit organization to promote the use of clean fuels in Asia and the Middle East. We believe that the use of clean fuels is one of the most compelling answers to improving the quality of air. Our mission is to promote and advance the interests of stakeholders in the use of clean fuels that benefit the environment by leveraging the economic, technical and environmental attributes of these fuels. ACFA operates by the principles of sound science and technology, cost efficiency and sustainability of the environment. ACFA focuses on fuel quality improvement and harmonization in the regions. We provide scientific information and data as well as technical expertise and knowledge to several national policymaking bodies to empower their clean fuels programs and efforts. We also collaborate with the oil and auto industries, non-government organisations (NGOs) and the academia to facilitate a scientific approach to fuels legislation across the region. ACFA is a proud partner of the United Nations Environment Program Partnership for Clean Fuels and Vehicles (UNEP-PCFV) and a Coordinating Council Member of Clean Air Initiatives for Asian Cities (CAI-Asia). ACFA publishes three different newsletters – Fuel for Thoughts, In Focus and In Conversation, to provide updated information on clean fuels and air quality. To subscribe to these complimentary newsletters, please visit www.acfa.org.sg. If you have further queries, please contact Ms Nurfarahislinda, Communications Manager, Asian Clean Fuels Association at e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.

The European Biodiesel Board (EBB) is a Brussels-based non-profit organisation established in 1997. We bring together producers of biodiesel (FAME and HVO) in Europe, gathering 34 members across 21 Member-States representing 75% of European biodiesel output. We represent biodiesel producers using all feedstocks: food/feed crops, waste, residues, and other innovative biogenic materials. Biodiesel is used primarily as a substitute for fossil fuels in transport and is key to decreasing EU transport emissions and dependence on imported diesel. The EBB promotes European biodiesel use and is committed to international standards for sustainability in GHG emissions and feedstock supply.

The organisation, established in 2010, promotes the beneficial uses of ethanol throughout Europe.
