Market outlook and EU-funded R&I actions on Sustainable Aviation Fuels

Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is a promising technology to decarbonize the aviation sector and substitute the fossil-based fuels which are causing airplanes to emit 2% of the global CO2 emissions. Due to their importance, EUBCE will feature multiple presentations dedicated to SAF and advanced biofuels throughout its conference programme.

In this workshop, international experts from companies and research institutions will present the state of the SAF market and the most recent EU-funded research and innovation actions which are aiming to develop SAF products from a variety of biomass sources and with innovative bioconversion routes.

SkyNRG will present the findings of their updated market outlook for SAF, which evaluated the likelihood of achieving the volumes of SAF established by the EU aviation fuels blending mandate towards 2030, the requirements for capacity scale-up in the long term, and the various scenarios impacting the realization of this mandate.

The Bio4A project aims to test the logistic chain of advanced sustainable aviation biofuels under market condition as well as assessing the socio-economic sustainability of the entire supply chain. On top of this, the project will also investigate alternative feedstocks for SAF, namely drought resistant plant species grown on marginal Mediterranean lands, as well as evaluate the use of biochar to increase the fertility of the soil and stock carbon where the feedstock is grown.

The GreenFlexJET project delivers a blueprint for the production and distribution of a novel SAF technology from a diverse range of organic waste feedstocks. Its innovative process combines Sustainable Aviation through Biofuel Refining (SABR) technology for the refining of biodiesel from organic waste fats with the Thermo-Catalytic Reforming (TCR®) technology to produce biocrude oil from organic solid waste.

The FLITE project will design, build, and demonstrate a production facility that uses innovative ethanol-based Alcohol-to-Jet (ATJ) technology to produce synthetic paraffinic kerosene (SPK) from wasted-based ethanol with a significant GHG reduction relative to conventional jet.

The activities of GLAMOUR project are focused on an innovative integrated process converting the waste bio-based feedstock such as crude glycerol into aviation and marine diesel fuels, notably syngas. In the long term, GLAMOUR results could unlock low-cost feedstock, increase the biofuels production and generating a scalable business.

Advanced liquid biofuels for net zero: the significance of sustainability

As stated in IRENA’s low-carbon pathway, a five-fold increase in production capacity of biofuels is needed by 2050 to meet current international climate targets. As competing demands for biomass are also projected to increase over this period, innovative feedstocks and technologies need to not only be researched and developed, but also deployed and promoted by adequate policies. Advanced biofuels are the form of biofuels that have grown from these legacy sustainability concerns over competing uses for resources, such as land and biomass, and also GHG emission reduction targets.

The side event looks at the inherent significance of sustainability in advanced biofuels’ production and use, and aims to share experiences in order to draw useful lessons for sustainable expansion of the sector to contribute to net-zero goals. The roundtable discussion will consider sustainability challenges for advanced biofuel value chains, how they can be overcome in future operations, and what can be done to clarify common misconceptions.

The side event is organized as part of the GBEP work on advanced liquid biofuels. In 2021, the Global Bioenergy Partnership undertook a collection of experiences in advanced liquid biofuels across four continents. The collection takes a deep-dive into a selection of different experiences in advanced liquid biofuels to detail their variety not only in terms of technology and development phase but also in their benefits, drivers and barriers.

UNRAVEL Workshop: Novel lignocellulosic biorefinery for mixed and complex biomass to support new value chains in a European bioeconomy

In 2016, the Paris Agreement entered into force as the legally binding international treaty on climate change. Its goal is to limit global warming to well below 2° Celsius, compared to preindustrial levels. To achieve this long-term temperature goal, countries aim to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible to achieve a climate neutral world by midcentury. One of the pillars of the European Union to reach treaty targets foresees more sustainable products and production processes that minimise the use of fossil resources. A major challenge for the transition towards a low-carbon bio-based economy is the development of new value chains for innovative added-value products based on sustainable and industrially viable biomass. Lignocellulosic biomass is an abundant and renewable resource from plants mainly composed of polysaccharides, such as cellulose and hemicelluloses, and an aromatic polymer - lignin - and represents an important category of feedstocks suitable for biorefinery processing. It has a high potential as an alternative to fossil resources to produce second-generation biofuels, bio-based chemicals and materials. Especially biomass residues that originate from forestry or agriculture could be sustainable feedstocks for higher value products that could help to avoid competition over hardwood with a generally high demand.

Recent studies indicate that the feedstock availability in the EU can be sufficient to provide a significant part of the carbon needed for material use such as polymers. However, competition exists over certain lignocellulosic feedstocks from various sectors, with bioenergy currently being one of the most abundant applications. Future scenarios will therefore have to consider biomass availabilities and assure higher feedstock flexibilities of biorefinery processes to ensure their economic feasibility at industrial scales. Furthermore, environmental and biodiversity aspects will play important roles in the future success of lignocellulosic value chains.
This side-event of the 30th EUBCE comprises presentations and a panel discussion and is organised by the BBI JU UNRAVEL project. It will give the audience insight in:

  • Breakthroughs on the way to high value applications from complex and mixed lignocellulosic biomass, combining a new biomass upgrading concept with organosolv fractionation and a continuous lignin precipitation technology
  • Environmental and socio-economic aspects of lignocellulosic value chains, future prospects, challenges and remaining barriers
  • The challenges and opportunities that in the future may arise from utilising the same type of second generation feedstocks for different sectors, among those energy and bio-based materials, growing feedstock demands, the risk of competition and the role of climate change and biodiversity strategies and programs.

    TO-SYN-FUEL plant to produce renewable fuels

    To-Syn-Fuel project partners have been working hard to build the pre-commercial plant to demonstrate the conversion of dried sewage sludge to drop-in bio-fuels and green hydrogen using Thermo-Catalytic-Reforming technology.

    With the plant now fully operational, the To-Syn-Fuel project is inviting you to a project webinar to view the facilities and meet some of the team.

    During this event, consortium partners will introduce and describe how main project activities are progressing and which results from current analysis are available to prepare the final part of the project.

    The H2020 To-Syn-Fuel project and its new process with different integrated technologies will be introduced by the project coordinator.

    Characterisation of processed feedstock, sewage sludge, and main products from the process, H2-rich syngas, biochar and bio-oil, will precede a presentation on the assembled demonstrator working plant showing the Thermo-Catalytic Reforming (TCR®) implemented in a new process integrated with hydrodeoxygenation (HDO) and pressure swing adsorption (PSA) technologies.

    First results from the study conducted to know the stakeholders perceptions towards the integrated project technologies will be presented.

    As To-Syn-Fuel is designed to set the benchmark for future sustainable development within Europe, by providing a valuable example of sustainable renewable fuels and green hydrogen production to the rest of the world, while successfully addressing energy, environmental, economic and social needs, some further promotional initiatives to engage industry will be proposed.

    A round of questions and answers from participants to presenters will close the event.

    Electrochemical routes for bio-liquids transformation

    Biomass conversion into chemicals, fuels and materials is seen as essential pillar of the future green society.

    In combination with electricity production from renewable energy, this can lead to highly sustainable, CO2 neutral process configurations.
    Electrochemistry enables the conversion of bio-based streams at mild conditions. This minimises degradation and enables the process integration of bio liquid production and upgrading at the feedstock source.

    In this session recent developments within the H2020 project EBIO and the topically closely related H2020 projects LIBERATE and Selectively are presented. Based on lab scale studies new insights into the fundamental reaction mechanisms will be discussed during the first two presentations. The session will conclude with a presentation focussing on the design and operation of a pilot unit for electrochemical lignin conversion and product separation.

    Verifying a functional business model based on the Phy2Climate approach: Pitfalls, opportunities and strategies in place

    The European project Phy2Climate (P2C) combines the remediation of contaminated soil through plants and the processing and use of resulting biomass as bio-combustibles. The aim of the workshop is to verify Phy2Climate’s approach from a practical and economical point of view. Together with participating experts and stakeholders we will have a look at process proposed by P2C and the draft of an overall business model as well as the models for the contributing parties in the overall process.

    It is the implicit goal to identify potential obstacles as well as opportunities that may affect the feasibility of following through this approach. Participants of the workshop will be conveyed the projects findings from a process and economic point of view and will be invited to share their expertise to improve the realization and pursuit of the P2C overall goal of combining phytoremediation and the production of biofuels and bio-char in a beneficial manner.

    Participants of this workshop will gain essential insight on the opportunities of the P2C-approach which joins the benefits of gentle remediation of contaminated soils with production of bio-combustibles with low CO2-impact or possibly C02 reduction potential.

    Decarbonisation options: Biochar, BECCS and Geopolitics

    Session Description

    This session covers three diverse topics of clear relevance for understanding best decarbonisation options. Firstly it looks at the option to increase the carbon capture of advanced biofuel chains by including slow pyrolysis and valorise the biochar as soil improver and carbon storage solution. Secondly, the BECCS potential for Germany is explored taking a diversity of BECC options into account. Lastly a presentation discusses how geopolitical developments and the EU regional bioenergy regulation (RED II) are likely to act as barriers that directly reduce Europe’s access bioenergy and potential to mitigate GHG emissions towards 2050.

    Squaring the circle between phytoremediation and biofuel production

    The aim of the workshop is to discuss the regulatory and policy framework at the intersection of nature-based contaminated land/soil management and biofuels areas and highlight existing gaps and blind spots, with a view to develop proposals to overcome such gaps. The vision is to facilitate the use of biomass grown in contaminated land for the purpose of phytoremediation to produce clean biofuels for the transport sector.

    The current policies and regulatory frameworks for management and clean-up of contaminated sites in Europe do not include biofuel production as a valuable, mutually reinforcing option to remediate sites and generate clean energy. At the same time, all energy and climate policies and their associated projections envisage an increasingly significant role for biofuels for transport up to at least 2030, creating therefore the need for mobilization of significant amounts of (sustainable) biomass feedstock.

    Considerations related to the land use change effects, as well as the introduction of the low-iLUC risk feedstock concept, have sparked an interest on the exploitation of marginal and contaminated land for biofuels’ feedstock production. It is therefore necessary to identify and eliminate the policy and regulatory barriers that may hinder the use of contaminated land for biofuel production.

    The workshop will be organized on the based of preliminary findings from three H2020 projects (CERESiS/GOLD/Phy2climate).

    MUSIC Workshop: Use of pyrolysis oil and other advanced biofuels to decarbonize maritime transport

    This event is organised in the framework of the project MUSIC (www.music-h2020.eu) supported by the European Commission within Horizon 2020.

    The MUSIC project aims to facilitate market uptake of three types of intermediate bioenergy carriers (IBC’s: torrefied biomass, fast pyrolysis bio-oils, and microbial oil) by developing feedstock mobilisation strategies, improved logistics and IBC trade centres.

    Biomass, such as agricultural or forest residues, can be processed into energetically denser, storable and transportable intermediary products analogous to coal, oil and gaseous fossil energy carriers. IBCs may replace fossil fuels in the energy (power & heat) production sector, the transport sector, within energy intensive industries (e.g. steel production) and for the production of bio-based materials. IBCs contribute to energy security, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and provide a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels in Europe.

    This workshop will present and discuss the outlook for advanced biofuels to decarbonize maritime transport with a special focus on the prospects of using pyrolysis oil-based fuels. Speakers will represent different actors within the sustainable shipping eco-system.
