Flexible and resilient integrated biofuel processes for competitive production of green renewable jet and shipping fuels
FLEXI-GREEN FUELS is a consortium of 13 European partners that is coordinated by Hochschule Bremerhaven, University of Applied Sciences. The project started in January 2021 and will last for 3 years.
THE PARTNERS INVOLVED ARE:
University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven
Is the general coordinator of the project, acting each time as WP-leader regarding WP1, WP9 and WP6. BHV will provide the necessary support for day-to day administrative, financial, technical, scientific and organizational management of the project as a whole. Also, BHV will be responsible for the Dissemination & Exploitation and will be involved in Fuel upgrading and tests, focusing on the Downstream separation of new biofuel components or fractions.
Is establishing a full biomass processing pilot plant and will work on OFMSW hydrolysis, lipid extraction, and MEC optimisation and scale up, being WP-leader in WP3 and WP4. Hosting excellent laboratory facilities, AAU will be involved in WP4 on fungal sugar-to-lipid and acetic acid fermentation.
Aristotelio Panepistimio Thessalonikis
Is leading WP5 and is mainly involved in lignin fast pyrolysis, catalytic hydrogenation/deoxygenation and alkylation of lignin bio-oil light fractions, catalytic hydrotreating of heavier lignin bio-oil fractions and lipids, and catalytic conversion of hemicellulose sugars to jet fuel alkanes.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No. 101007130.
