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.
