Activities The consortium of NextGenRoadFuels will carry out the following activities 9 Developing innovative strategies for collecting and pre-treating urban residues, building on existing logistics infrastructure while providing a higher added value through HTL processing. 9 Studying different combinations of pre-treatment, HTL processing and upgrading, as well as their integration. 9 Evaluating the environmental and sustainability impacts of the of the process proposed in the project. 9 Applying a full risk management strategy by considering all aspects (technology, economic, business, etc.) to achieve project objectives and ensure future implementation. 9 Setting up an integrated approach along the value chain, both at lab-scale and pilot-scale, to allow in-depth understanding and optimization of process parameters in a holistic approach. 9 Carrying out process simulations and associated techno-economic assessments to define future industrial-scale implementation for an increased biofuels production capacity. 9 Defining and assessing efficient business strategies for the successful implementation and replication of the developed value chains at European and global level. 9 Promoting knowledge-sharing on HTL pathway and for producing renewable fuels amongst all relevant stakeholders, media and citizens.
