Refinery integration, scale-up and certification for aviation and marine biofuels production
REFOLUTION is a Horizon Europe funded project aimed at delivering a cost-effective production (reduce the CAPEX by 50% and OPEX by 45%) of advanced biofuels for the aviation and marine sectors via a process that can be implemented in existing European refineries.
The project will develop and demonstrate an innovative process to convert biomass derived pyrolysis oil (FP) into advanced biofuels combining different co-processing technologies. It will apply Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) co-processing of bio-oils for aviation and marine applications at TRL7, and hydrotreating bio-oil for marine at TRL6 targeting the integration with refinery for large-scale biofuel production.
REFOLUTION is gathering 14 leading EU entities, with a strong commitment of industry. The partners involved cover the full biofuel value chain to deploy risk-mitigation pathways for successful implementation into existing refineries.
The project will deliver a comprehensive toolbox of models, standards, social assessment and exploitation pathways for interfacing with current refinery models and available documentation for further replication in other existing refineries.
