Periodic Reporting for period 1 - FlexJET (Sustainable Jet Fuel from Flexible Waste Biomass)
Reporting period: 2018-04-01 to 2019-09-30
flexJET’s innovative process combines SABR technology from Green Fuels Research for the refining of biodiesel from organic waste fats with the TCR® technology from Susteen Technologies for the production of biocrude oil from organic solid waste. The primary ambition of this project will be to demonstrate and validate the technical and economic viability of the integrated SABR-TCR technology approaches, together with their environmental and social sustainability, as well as the cost-competitiveness, at commercial scale through the construction of a demonstrator that will also serve as an exemplar to facilitate rapid uptake and significantly de-risk subsequent commercial exploitation.
flexJET will achieve the following overarching objectives:
1) Demonstrate technical viability and cost-competitiveness of the production of aviation fuels
2) Validate logistical advantages through analysis of regional/local integrated supply and demand strategies and evaluate environmental and social sustainability
3) Contribute to the Renewable Energy Directive targets for renewable energy
4) Facilitate the commercial availability and medium term market penetration of advanced biofuels
