This workshop is part of EU Refolution project, which aims to demonstrate the cost-effective production of advanced biofuels for aviation and marine sector via a process that can be implemented in existing European refineries.

The project especially targets aviation and marine transport, aiming to overcome obstacles in the way of creating CO2 reductions by using advanced biofuels instead of traditional fossil fuels.

A special Refolution Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) framework has been developed in the project to tackle the sustainability and responsibility issues regarding this demonstration process.

In this workshop we discuss the sustainability and responsibility questions based on the Refolution RRI framework.

The workshop is part of Refolution stakeholder communication process.

We invite all kinds of stakeholders to come and to discuss the sustainability and responsibility threats and advances together with us.
