FLEXI-GREEN FUELS

Published: 13 December 2021

Flexible and resilient intergrated biofuel processes for competitive production of green renewable jet and shipping fuels, Horizon 2020, 2021-2023

The goal of the EU-funded FLEXI-GREEN FUELS project is to advance the production of next-generation biofuels for aviation and shipping, by developing improved technologies for converting lignocellulosic biomass residues and the organic fraction of municipal waste. The project plans to develop and optimise three methods of converting sugars into lipids. These lipids will be further converted towards aviation fuels (C8-C17) and/or bunker type shipping fuels (>C18). Techno-economic and life-cycle assessment analyses are conducted to benchmark the new biofuels against conventional aviation and shipping fuels to quantify their capabilities.

The project is  funded by E.U. H2020-LC-SC3-2020-RES-RIA: LC-SC3-RES-1-2019-2020 (Dnr 101007130).
