BioSFerA

April 2020 - March 2024

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).

SHEALTHY

May 2019 - April 2023

SHEALTHY aims to assess and develop an optimal combination of non-thermal sanitization, preservation and stabilization methods to improve the safety (inactivation of pathogens and spoilage microorganisms), while preserving the nutritional quality (up to 30%) and prolonging the shelf-life (up to 50%) of minimally processed F&V products.

BioRen

November 2018 - October 2022

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).

BIOCON-CO2

1 January 2018 - 31 December 2021

BIOtechnological processes based on microbial platforms for the CONversion of CO2 from iron&steel industry into commodities for chemicals and plastics

Marisurf

September 2015 - August 2020

The MARISURF project will use marine bacterial strains to produce new SAs. To ensure the newly discovered SAs satisfy their requirements and demands, MARISURF will place the industrial end-users in a leading role in guiding the search for new SAs.

Falcon

January 2017 - December 2020

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.
