FlexJET

Year(s): 2018
Sector: Bioenergy

FlexJET is a project funded by Horizon 2020 EU’s research and innovation programme. The project will build a pre-commercial demonstration plant for the production of advanced aviation biofuel (jet fuel)  from waste vegetable oil and organic solid waste biomass (food waste), demonstrating the SABR-TCR technology (traditional transesterification (TRANS) and Thermo-Catalytic Reforming (TCR) combined with hydrogen separation through pressure swing adsorption (PSA), and hydro deoxygenation (HDO) and hydro cracking/ isomerisation (HC)) to produce a fully equivalent jet fuel (compliant with ASTM D7566 Standards). This project will deliver environmental and social sustainability mapping and validate a comprehensive exploitation business plan, building on already established end user interest with existing offtake agreements already in place with British Airways.
