Correction to: Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy  https://doi.org/10.1007/s10098-018-1529-z

In the original publication of the article, the second sentence of four paragraph in the subsection Energy and GHG mitigation benefits from a diversified SBF portfolio should be “Fuel oil has the biggest substitution potential for SBF: It could be substituted in the industrial and power sectors. However, within the power sector, there is strong competition with natural gas, as currently old fuel oil power plants are being replaced with combined cycle natural gas (CCNG) plants” instead of “Fuel oil has the biggest substitution potential for SBF: It could be substituted in the industrial and electric sectors, although few power plants are still burning fuel oil and there is strong interest to replace them with combined cycle natural gas (CCNG) plants”.

The last sentence of third paragraph in the Conclusions section should be “Currently, SBFs are not competitive in terms of costs with industrial NG, petcoke, and coal” instead of “Industrial NG, coke, and coal are the cheapest fossil fuels, and currently they are not economically competitive with SBF”.
