In this project, an integrated refinery concept for the production of renewable fuels will be developed and demonstrated on a pilot plant scale, combining thermochemical, electrochemical and biotechnological processes. The use of biogenic residues will be combined with both power-to-X processes and carbon capture/sequestration (CO2-negative processes).
The project aims to scale up renewable fuel production processes to the final scale before production in the short term. The use of biogenic feedstocks is combined with both power-to-X processes and carbon capture/sequestration. With minimized energy and feedstock requirements, a wide range of fuels will be produced, designed for hard-to-electrify transportation applications. The fuels produced will also be tested and analyzed for their suitability.
Several TUM chairs, the Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy Technology (UMSICHT), the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology (IGB), the Technology and Support Center (TFZ) and the industrial companies Clariant Produkte GmbH, Martech GmbH and Volkswagen AG are participating in the project.
