On 30th April 2020, the activities of the BioSFerA project were launched. The Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant will have an important role to play in the scale-up of this technology.
BioSFerA aims to develop a cost-effective interdisciplinary technology to produce sustainable aviation and maritime fuels. Thus, biogenic residues and wastes will be gasified and the syngas will be fermented to produce bio-based triacylglycerides (TAGs).
The objective of BioRen is to develop competitive drop-in biofuels for road transport from the organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW). A higher value fuel is targeted: glycerol tertiary butyl ether (GTBE) is a promising fuel additive to both diesel and gasoline that improves engine performance and cuts harmful exhaust emissions (e.g. fine dust).
Falcon: Fuel And chemicals from Lignin through enzymatic and chemical CONversion.
FALCON aims to convert this lignin-rich industrial waste of 2G biofuel plants to higher value products, in particular shipping fuels, fuel additives and chemical building blocks. This would be the next consecutive step in turning waste to products, thus minimizing waste and simultaneously providing new alternatives for fossil resource based processes.
Project Scope The Ghent Syngas Cluster project aimed at developing and demonstrating new innovative technology to convert syngas, a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen gas, into green chemicals, sustainable fuels and green electricity. To achieve this, a study was performed to check the technical and economic feasibility to construct a demonstration unit at the Bio […]
