This video in Danish is part of a TV service by DR – Denmark’s Radio (dated 06 July 2020), focused on the potential of sustainable advanced fuels as a bioenergy carrier in Denmark.
It features Lasse Rosendahl, Professor and Head of Department of Energy Technology, Aalborg University and coordinator of the NextGenRoadFuels (NGRF) project and Claus Uhrenholt Jensen, Senior Process Specialist & Department Manager, Steeper Energy APS. The two teams work together at the continuous bench scale 1 HTL plant, at Aalborg University and first biofuels batches are shown on the video.
NextGenRoadFuels project is proving the HTL technology pathway as a viable, sustainable and efficient route for production of liquid drop-in fuels for road transportation from urban organic residuals.
The outstanding feedstock flexibility of advanced HTL technology and state-of-the-art, low-H2 upgrading techniques will be applied to low value, aggregated urban wastes, in order to obtain cost competitive, high volume, sustainable drop-in quality synthetic gasoline and diesel fuels.
New innovative process steps will be designed and existing steps optimized to address the additional challenges encompassed by such feedstocks, with the objective to demonstrate all main process steps at >TRL5.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 818413.
