PROJECT OVERVIEW

PROJECT

Objectives

WASTE2FUELS aims to produce biobutanol as a sustainable alternative fuel contributing to decentralised energy production towards EU energy security. The project will enlarge the current biomass feedstock basis by the development of next generation biofuel technologies capable of converting unavoidable agrofood waste streams into high quality biobutanol.

Innovation

This project aims to develop novel and optimise existing technologies in order to convert unavoidable AFW (food waste and agricultural residues) streams into high quality biofuel for use as a direct substitution for virgin fossil fuels. It has the potential to significantly reduce the burden on land use for biofuels not only in Europe but worldwide, along with dramatically improving conversion efficiencies of current biofuel production technologies.
WASTE2FUELS processes will continue to drive cost reductions and efficiencies in the biobutanol produced
- Waste2Fuels,
WASTE2FUELS does not compete directly or indirectly with food or feed production and creates no burden on water resources.
