REDIFUEL: Robust and Efficient processes and technologies for Drop-In renewable FUELs for road transport

Abstract : This paper introduces the work of the joint project "Robust and Efficient processes and technologies for Drop-In renewable FUELs for road transport" (REDIFUEL). The overall aim is to enable the utilization of various biomass feedstocks for an ultimate renewable EN590 diesel biofuel in a sustainable manner. REDIFUEL's ambition is to develop new technologies, solutions and processes to reach high conversion efficiencies for renewable fuel production. The proposed drop-in biofuel contains high-cetane liquid (C11-C21) bio-hydrocarbons and C6-C11 bio-alcohols showing exceptional combustion and pollutant mitigation performance. Environmental and social aspects are also considered by carrying out a comprehensive Biomass-to-Wheel performance analysis. First artificial fuel samples simulating the final product have been synthesized and analyzed with regard to fuel relevant properties, showing very promising results.
