A small group of people in The Netherlands, active in the bio-energy field and/or formerly involved in the activities of FACT, decided to save the intellectual heritage and knowledge generated by the Foundation FACT, that was established by late prof. C, Daey Ouwens in 2005, but due to insufficiënt financial resources had to close down in 2014.
Therefore the group has created a new foundation to make sure that the knowledge that is generated by FACT will remain available in the public domain for practitioners and researchers in the field. Uploading of relevant documents is ongoing.
Moreover, they want to create a forum where practitioners, researchers, policymakers and other stakeholders can meet to exchange information.
The aim of the Foundation BFF is to enhance the production and use of sustainable fuels in developing countries through exchange of knowledge and further collect and distribute knowledge in this area. The focus will be on developing countries, rural communities, small scale/low tech or in any case applicable in the context of the country.
Two members of ARRAKIS are board members of the new foundation, namely Flemming Nielsen and Jan de Jongh.
