EU project FASTCARD moves forward advanced biofuels research via two pathways : Biofuels Digest


In Norway, EU-funded FASTCARD project used two different routes to meet European commitments to the production of advanced biofuels. The first involved the ‘liquefaction’ of biomass and is the closest to competing economically with fossil fuels, while the second employed gasification of biomass, which can be economically challenging over the short-term.

Research enabled the short- and long-term implementation of advanced biofuel production based on the rapid and risk reducing industrialization of nano-catalytic processes via liquid-based and gas-based value chains. The consortium combined it with micro-kinetic and process design level modelling to better understand the mechanisms and economics underlying these processes.
