Results will include design of optimal upgrading pathways for jet and marine fuels, as well as novel catalytic and fractionation approaches to reducing production costs.

What is the goal of the project?
- Establish the necessary sequence of refinery unit operations to effectively bring HTL-derived fuels and blend components to required quality (ASTMD4054, ISO8217, EN590 and 228) and quantify cost of these (hydrogen consumption, process conditions, retrofitting/greenfield CAPEX) (scientific/technical)
- Develop specific and novel combinations of catalysts, hydrotreater design and conditions to target the complex heteroatom structure of the whole biocrude or its fractions without compromising carbon efficiency and optimal boiling point range of the products (technical)
- Demonstrate the performance of the produced fuels in terms of GHG reduction and emissions in relevant end-user technologies by delivering more than 70 % reductions compared to fossil equivalents at an initial scale of more than 3000 barrels per day (North DK scenario, urban and agricultural waste) corresponding to investments of the order of 2 billion DKK (technical/implementation)
- Establish location-specific implementation scenarios based on optimized value chains for the specific markets of aviation and marine, including security of supply, freedom-to-operate, and roadmap to implementation including financial aspects (socio-economic)
- Demonstrate a cost competitive pathway for aviation and marine transport to reach well beyond 70 % CO2 reduction, and quantify the scale and impact of the proposed fuel pathway on the Danish CO2 reduction targets by fossil fuel displacement and sectoral integration with heating and electric (PtX) grids (sustainability)
- Contribute to implementation of the RED II directive in Denmark by establishing sustainability data on alternative fuels for aviation and marine transport (policy)
