Demonstration of advanced biofuels production from aquatic biomass

ID: LC-SC3-RES-27-2020

Deadline:   11.12.2019 17:00:00

Type of action: IA Innovation action

Deadline Model: single-stage

Callbeschreibung

Specific Challenge:

The security of feedstock supply is essential for the large-scale production of advanced biofuels which is a prerequisite for improving their competitiveness. The specific challenge is to increase the reliability of processes through diversifying and securing the sustainable supply of seaborne feedstock at large scale.

Scope:

Proposals will demonstrate aquatic advanced biofuel pathways which improve the economic viability of the subsequent energy production, including the upgrading technologies and valorisation of co-products. Proposals will address processes and technologies for advanced biofuels at a scale of 100-1000 tonnes from seaborne aquatic biomass such as macro-algae and/or fish residues in an energy-driven integrated biorefinery concept. Projects will demonstrate the full value chain with achievement of at least 70% energy output (fuel, heat and power) and environmental sustainability based on a life-cycle assessment. Long-term potential for large scale biofuel production should be considered. Proposals are expected to bring the technology from TRL 5 to 6-7 (please see part G of the General Annexes). The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of EUR 6-10million would allow this challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.

Expected Impact:

Supported projects are expected to enlarge the feedstock basis and improve the viability of technologies for sustainable fuels and energy production.

Cross-cutting Priorities:

Clean Energy
