Waste2Fuels project partner met on February 19th and 20th 2019 in Berlin for the last time. During 2 days, in the presence of the project officer final project achievements and results were presented and discussed from the scientific and exploitation point of view.

Over 3 years, the project – funded under the LCE-11-2015 call of the H2020 programme – developed novel methods of uptaking agro-food waste for biobutanol production. Biobutanol is seen as a biofuel with many benefits compared to other existing fuels such as bioethanol or biodiesel.

Project results are available from the “Documents” section of Waste2Fuels webpage in the form of downloads of scientific posters and oral presentations, public deliverables and training materials.

Available training materials explain the background and challenges of topics covered in the project, present solutions and results as well as identify further areas of research. Downloads are available for the following topics:

  • Feedstock selection and pretreatment
  • Metabolic engineering for biomass conversion to butanol
  • ABE upgrading
  • Process simulation and process balances
  • Testing of butanol blends in burners and engines

Furthermore, program and public presentations of the Napoli Workshop “Towards biobutanol as fuel: biorefinery, processes and technologies” (9-10 July 2018, Napoli, Italy) (Link: http://www.waste2fuels.eu/napoli-workshop/) give an excellent overview on the scientific work in Waste2Fuels project.
