Energy Transition and Environment

The world faces major threats due to unsustainable consumption of fossil resources and raw materials, and unsustainable land use. The whole society and all sectors need to make a U-turn in order to preserve our planet for future generations.

Uniresearch consultants have profound knowledge of the opportunities and challenges in the Energy Transition and are keen to support you to acquire funding for research and innovation in e.g. the following EU programs: Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy, Blue Growth, Biobased Industries, Mobility for Growth, Fuel Cells and Hydrogen and Climate action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials. Our services in project set-up and – management cover each development stage; from early stage research projects to demonstration projects.

The REDIFUEL partners work together to develop processes and technologies for producing drop-in renewable fuels, based on various biomass feedstock, for an ultimate renewable diesel biofuel.

The project goals are:

1) To develop chemical processes (Fischer-Tropsch & Hydroformylation) for producing biomass derived (renewable) drop-in fuels.
2) Scaling up of these processes for demonstrating production on a larger scale.
3) To develop a blending strategy for the drop-in fuels with the current diesel standards.
4) Showcasing the suitability of the newly biomass derived (renewable) drop-in fuels through testing them in Complete-Component Commonrail (CoCoS) test benches as well as test drives both on a dyno and on real roads.
5) To perform a viability performance check of the developed process(es) and to perform an overall impact assessment by the quantification of the environmental impacts along the entire supply and value chain.
