Redifuel – Project progress

Successful cooperation in the EU project Redifuel

Our project team has succeeded in operating a plant for the production of green fuel from biomass by remote control.
The VTTs biomass gasifier was successfully connected to INERATEC’s Mobile Synthesis Unit (MOBSU) to produce fuel from renewable carbon sources. Furthermore, the flexibility of the plant was confirmed by several load cycling tests. This is particularly important when using renewable energies (e.g. solar, wind), as their availability can fluctuate considerably. A new catalyst also made it possible to achieve a high content of olefins, an important intermediate product in the chemical industry. These can subsequently be flexibly refined into various end products, such as green fuels. Results from the test campaigns will directly be transferred to recent industrial scale projects.
