To-Syn-Fuel project partners have been working hard to build the pre-commercial plant to demonstrate the conversion of dried sewage sludge to drop-in bio-fuels and green hydrogen using Thermo-Catalytic-Reforming technology.

With the plant now fully operational, the To-Syn-Fuel project is inviting you to a project webinar to view the facilities and meet some of the team.

During this event, consortium partners will introduce and describe how main project activities are progressing and which results from current analysis are available to prepare the final part of the project.

The H2020 To-Syn-Fuel project and its new process with different integrated technologies will be introduced by the project coordinator.

Characterisation of processed feedstock, sewage sludge, and main products from the process, H2-rich syngas, biochar and bio-oil, will precede a presentation on the assembled demonstrator working plant showing the Thermo-Catalytic Reforming (TCR®) implemented in a new process integrated with hydrodeoxygenation (HDO) and pressure swing adsorption (PSA) technologies.

First results from the study conducted to know the stakeholders perceptions towards the integrated project technologies will be presented.

As To-Syn-Fuel is designed to set the benchmark for future sustainable development within Europe, by providing a valuable example of sustainable renewable fuels and green hydrogen production to the rest of the world, while successfully addressing energy, environmental, economic and social needs, some further promotional initiatives to engage industry will be proposed.

A round of questions and answers from participants to presenters will close the event.
