The main impacts of this project are:
- Improved quality control of liquid and solid biofuels;
- Comparability of measurements;
- Improved operation, efficient use of the fuel, lower consumption and minimalized emissions;
- Fair trade.

Besides the impact on industrial and other user communities, BIOFMET will also have a significant impact of the metrology and scientific communities, on the relevant standard and also long-term economic and environmental impacts.
