Impact of Biofuels on the Oxidation Stability and Combustion Pollutants of Heavy Duty and Jet Fuels

Project description

Setting a new standard for sustainable biofuels

In the fight against climate change and pollution, limiting harmful emissions of the transport sector is critical. In an effort to reduce this sector's carbon footprint, sustainable biofuels are often an alternative for propulsion systems that cannot easily be electrified, such as those found in aviation or road freight. However, there are still unknowns regarding the interactions of biofuels and conventional fuels as well as their effects on the environment. The EU-funded BioSCoPe project will develop a framework to test the intricate ageing characteristics and combustion effects of biofuels in detail. The goal is to help improve the development of biofuels, promote their use in transport and set new standards in biofuel quality.
