TAKE-OFF is an industrially driven project that aims to produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) from CO2 and hydrogen, in a cost effective way. The TAKE-OFF technology is based on conversion of CO2 and H2 to SAF via ethylene as intermediate.
The aim of the project is to deliver a highly innovative process which produces SAF at lower costs, higher energy efficiency and higher carbon efficiency to crude jet fuel product than the current benchmark Fischer-Tropsch process.
EHLCATHOL action aims to completely transform a large volume of Enzymatic Hydrolysis Lignin (EHL) waste of the 2G bioethanol production from lignocellulose biomass, to produce high performance fuel blends, in particular high heating value jet-fuel, high octane gasoline and high cetane number diesel.
The project's target is to develop a novel technology that fully takes the advantage and utilizes the energy of the waste-EHL, transforms it to high quality liquid fuels applicable in hybrid cars, heavy-duty transport vehicles, ships and jet airplanes, thus, doubling the energy efficiency of the 2G bioethanol production chain and contributing to achieve the targeted carbon neutral EU by 2050.
The FLEXI-GREEN FUEL project will advance the production of next generation biofuels for shipping and aviation by developing and improving integrated technologies for a complete conversion of #1 lignocellulosic residue biomass (LIGN) and #2 the organic fraction of municipal waste (OFMSW)
Project targets are to significantly reduce the cost by improving the performance of the produced biofuels regarding the efficiency, the envronment and society.
