Scenario envisioned at M24 for the future exploitation of the project results, which will be jointly developed by the project partners, with a prominent role of industry.

FAQ and answers for laypeople

To avoid misunderstandings by the public and to make sure everybody in our project team knows how to answer the most important questions.

Documentary film

A longer version of D62 to give more details about our fascinating project Aimed at the general public

Report on integrated sustainability assessment

The most sustainable pathways among the eForFuel value chains in comparison to all reference systems will be identified and depicted Potential barriers against and unintended sideeffects of the implementation of those scenarios will be analyzed Recommendations on strategies for a sustainable implementation of eForFuel value chains will be delivered

Set up and maintaining of project website, Facebook and Twitter accounts

Establishment and update of our online presence, allowing also for direct feedback of the public and stakeholders.

Presentation of formate-bioeconomy tools at one European Maker Faire

Presentation of key technologies and methods for the formate bioeconomy at one of the Maker Faire Events in Europe with the aim to connect to the community of frugal innovators

Report on life cycle assessment

Evaluation of the environmental impacts associated with the eForFuel value chains covering a wide range of impact categories The assessment includes the products entire life cycle from raw material acquisition through production use endoflife treatment recycling and final disposal

Interim report on definitions, settings and system description

This report will provide the goal and scope of the integrated sustainability assessment as well as all initial definitions, settings and qualitative system description, including technological parameters.

Report on techno-economic assessment

Analysis of the profitability and market competitiveness of the value chains A business model will be developed to evaluate the economic viability of each value chain An estimate will be made for the required investment for a commercial rollout Technological performance and possible risks will be analyzed
