WASTE2FUELS aims to develop next-generation biofuel technologies capable of converting agro-food waste (AFW) streams into high-quality biobutanol. Butanol is one of the most promising biofuels due to its superior fuel properties compared to current main biofuels, bioethanol and biodiesel. In addition to its ability to reduce carbon emissions, its higher energy content (almost 30% more than ethanol), its ability to blend with both gasoline and diesel, its lower risk of separation and corrosion, its resistance to water absorption, allowing it to be transported in pipes and carriers used by gasoline, it offers a very exciting advantage for adoption as engines require almost no modifications to use it.
WASTE2FUELS processes will continue to drive cost reductions and efficiencies in the biobutanol produced
WASTE2FUELS does not compete directly or indirectly with food or feed production and creates no burden on water resources.
