Biofuels from WASTE TO ROAD transport

Objective

WASTE2ROAD will develop a new generation of cost-effective biofuels from a selected, well-defined range of low cost and abundant biogenic residues and waste fractions. Through optimisation of European waste recycling logistics and development of efficient low-risk conversion pathways, high overall carbon yields > 45% can be obtained while reducing greenhouse gases emissions > 80%.
The established consortium covers the full value chain, from a) waste management and pre-treatment based on designated streams from households; b) the subsequent transformation of waste to bio-liquids through fast pyrolysis and hydrothermal liquefaction, c) production of advanced biofuels through intermediate refining processes combined with existing downstream refinery co-processing technologies deploying sustainable hydrogen production, and d) assessment of the end-use compatibility of the obtained biofuels for road transport applications.
Correlations will be established between the quality and properties of diverse waste fractions, the relevant process parameters and final properties of the biofuel's: aiming to provide a unique understanding of the technical aspects related the whole value chain, as well as to assess and optimize the environmental, economic and social benefits.
Throughout the whole value chain development, emphasis will be on risk-mitigation pathways to maximize further exploitation of the results in industrial implementation. Specific attention will be paid to risk management, while establishing connections with stakeholders and relevant standardisation bodies to secure the future exploitation of the project’s results.
