WASTE2ROAD – Biofuels from WASTE TO ROAD transport

The objective of WASTE2ROAD is to develop a new generation of cost-effective biofuels from a range of low-cost biogenic residues and waste fractions (contaminated wood, black liquor from pulp and paper industry, and municipal solid organic waste incl. food residues).

Through optimisation of European waste recycling logistics and development of efficient low-risk conversion pathways, high overall carbon yields > 45% can be obtained while reducing greenhouse gases emissions > 80 %.

Eleven partners from six European countries cover the whole value chain from waste management and pre-treatment, through subsequent transformation of waste to bio-liquids and intermediate refining processes within existing refineries to testing of the produced biofuels in engine and vehicle for road transport.
