BioTfueL® project: entry into the industrialization and commercialization phase

Bionext and its partners have just successfully completed the test program on BioTfueL® demonstration units, a crucial step in the development of this technology that will allow the production of low carbon footprint biokerosene. This demonstration made it possible to validate, develop and optimize the process chain on a semi-industrial scale on 4 different types of biomass after 1000 hours of gasification and more than 1500 hours of torrefaction.

Renewable energies

The energy transition and tackling climate change depend on the development of new renewable resources. IFPEN proposes processes for the production of fuels, bases for the chemicals sector and gas from biomass. IFPEN also uses its expertise acquired in the field of oil and gas to offer solutions for the

Biofuels

Biofuels OVERVIEW AND CHALLENGES There are three principal reasons driving the development of biofuels: the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (GGEs) from the transport sector, the creation or maintenance of agricultural and forestry activities, energy independence. Public policies aimed at supporting biofuels were first introduced in the 1990s in Europe
