BioSFerA Final Event: Setting the course for aviation and marine fuels for the transport of tomorrow

In this global context of energy transition, the EU-funded project BioSFerA  provides a sustainable solution for jet and bunker biofuels production. The innovative and cost-effective model in which biogenic residues and wastes are valorised to obtain high quality advanced biofuels for aviation and maritime transport represents a valid sustainable alternative to common fossil fuels. After four […]

Project Coordinator CERTH hosts the BioSFerA Consortium in Thessaloniki

Another successful meeting for BioSFerA and its Consortium: project coordinator CERTH has hosted the last General Assembly of this year at their premises in Thessaloniki. The project is getting closer to the end and this meeting was the occasion to make the current state of play of activities and achievements. The Consortium proceeds with the […]

BioSFerA hydrotreatment process: a step forwards to our drop-in biofuels

BioSFerA project is approaching last months of its journey and within it, a new and important activity is closing the loop of its research. The hydrotreatment process represents the final step of the innovative BioSFerA model, based on the combination of a gasification and double-stage fermentation process. Main objective is the upgrading of the extracted […]

Scaling-up the integrated syngas fermentation pilot process

Following the successful integration of the gasification plant and gas fermentation mobile plant at VTT Bioruukki pilot center (Espoo, Finland), VTT and Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant (BBEPP) started the piloting activities last May. The campaigns focused mainly on feeding different purity-grade real syngases to the microorganism to test the effect of impurities on the […]

Find us in ECOMONDO

Even this year, BioSFerA attends to ECOMONDO, the famous international fair and exhibition on green technology held in Rimini (Italy) from 7th to 10th of November. Ecomondo, the ecological transition ecosystem, is the place for industry, stakeholders, policy makers, opinion leaders and local authorities to meet and talk. It brings together and systemises the key […]
