BioTFuel: Driving with plant-based fuels
Straw and waste wood as starting materials
Using plant-based fuels instead of gasoline or diesel can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 90 percent. However, there is a risk that cultivating biomass could take up arable land that could otherwise be used for food crops. In collaboration with French partners we are therefore researching a production method based on second-generation biomass, mainly waste and residues such as straw and wood offcuts that do not compete with food crops.
