Refinery integration, scale-up and certification for aviation and marine biofuels production.
Unlocking the potential of biofuels for aviation and marine in Europe and beyond
Advanced biofuels have the potential to save several gigatons of CO2 emission per year. However their development is hampered by several factors: a complex feedstock to be processed, the massive investments needed for each new refinery unit, the lack of certification for market adoption and social acceptance of the biofuel production itself. The REFOLUTION has a designed strategy to tackle these limitations.
The project consists in
Novel technologies for production of biofuels for aviation and marine sectors,
Paving the way for standardization and certification
Implementation in existing industry infrastructures, decreasing CAPEX and OPEX
Bringing new knowledge de-risking the technology
The Horizon Europe REFOLUTION project will deliver a cost-effective production of advanced biofuels in aviation and marine sector via a process that can be implemented in existing European refineries.
