New project: FUEL-UP

📢 We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Horizon Europe funded project FUEL-UP!

On the 6th and 7th of February, FUEL-UP Consortium gathered in Brussels, hosted by SINTEF, for the project kick-off meeting. Coordinated by SINTEF, with a consortium of 12 partners from Norway, The Netherlands, Turkey, Czech Republic, Belgium (Avecom), Germany, Luxembourg and Italy, FUEL-UP aims at producing simultaneously key renewable sustainable and available fuels and marine fuels from 100% biogenic feedstock through pyrolysis and downstream upgrading of pyrolysis oils to advanced biofuels, reducing GHG emissions of the aviation and marine transport sectors.

Advanced biofuels are an essential solution for achieving the EU objectives for tackling climate change. They can provide 14% of global transport fuel and 45% of global aviation fuel by 2050.

FUEL-UP will validate, at demo scale (TRL7), a route to produce sustainable liquid biofuels from lignocellulosic streams with 45-50% aviation fuel, 30-35% in the marine diesel range and 20% heavy naphta at TRL7.

A big thank you to Sintef team for their great hospitality and the excellent organisation of this meeting!
