AdvBioFuels is ann innovative approach of biofuels.
This project covers all the features of the Partnership Program “Applied Research Collaborative Projects”. Its thematic area is Energy under the research direction 2.1.: Sustainable energy systems and technologies, enerfy security, aligning with the research topic 2.1.4. Promotion of clean energy, environment protection measures and reducing of the greenhouse gas emissions.
The importance of this research area is ruled by Renewable Energy Directive implemented by European Union in 2009, The Directive stipulates the utilization, by 2020, of carting fuels produced from renewable sources.
POTENTIAL APLICATIONS / BENEFITS
Besides the actual state of the art, the project as a whole will ensure:
ü A better valorization of the molasses and glycerol (both industrial byproducts)
ü The reduction of the fossil fuel dependency, by replacing it with advanced biofuels,
ü Biofuels with improved properties (freezing point, viscosity, volatility, CFPP, solubility inwater etc.),
ü Promoting new, cheaper technologies to obtain advanced biofuels,
ü A reduction of the negative impact of the carting (transportation) field on the environment,by using a renewable source of energy, produced in greenway.
