Fuelling a sustainable future

In 2022, the power industry and the transport sector experienced an increase in their GHG emissions, unlike other sectors in the EU, such as buildings. Transport is one of the leading sectors in the EU that witnessed a high increase (of 15%) in CO2 emissions during the last 30 years (1990-2021). To decarbonise these sectors, an array of policies is suggested, such as increasing taxes for polluting aviation fuels and reducing the use of fossil fuels.

At the same time, waste and residue feedstocks can be utilised to produce biofuels for transport, effectively reducing GHG emissions. The International Energy Agency (IEA) highlights the need to diversify the biofuel production technology and use advanced feedstocks to minimise environmental impacts.

The use of RFNBOs (Renewable Fuels of Non-Biological Origin) is another promising alternative, as these fuels demand much less use of water resources and land to be produced than crop-based biofuels, deriving from feedstocks, such as maize and wheat. Another way of sustainable fuel production is through algae cultivation, but their use is still being researched and developed.


FUELPHORIA is aiming to create sustainable value chains for advanced biofuels and renewable non-biological fuels. The project will contribute to the electrification and replacement of fossil-based heat and fuel in buildings, industry and the transport sector.
Feedstock suppliers, technology providers and end-users will collaborate and play a role during the progress of the project, ensuring the supply of sustainable feedstock, its conversion to renewable fuels and the transportation of the end-products. FUELPHORIA plans to overcome existing technical issues and establish the design of innovative business models. In overall, nine value chains will be tested in Europe, and a Kenyan University will explore the possibilities of EU export of renewable and biofuels to Africa.
