Heat-to-Fuel is a project funded under Horizon 2020. The project is being implemented by 14 European partners who will be developing the next-generation biofuel technologies, thus promoting decarbonisation of the transport sector.
The partners of the Heat-to-Fuel project have over 100 years of combined expertise in biofuel production. They also incorporate state-of-the-art demonstration facilities and key industry and academic partners.
In 2013, the transport sector was responsible for 31.6% of total final energy consumption in Europe. Most of the energy-generating products used are imported fossil fuels such as diesel and kerosene. The decarbonisation of diesel and kerosene production as alternative energy sources is a very important factor in reducing CO2 emissions in this sector. Heat-to-Fuel is a leading research project focused on using the opportunity to develop efficient technologies and processes for the decarbonisation of fuels in the transport sector.
