Next Generation Bio-butanol

Challenge: First generation biofuels (ethanol and biodiesel) exhibit a number of limitations relating to their sustainability, performance, and high production costs.

Solution: Biobutanol is an exciting alternative to first generation biofuels due to its chemical characteristics, making it more fuel efficient and suitable for use in gasoline engines. The ButaNexT project developed highly efficient production processes to convert sustainable feedstocks for the next generation of biobutanol.

Duration: May 2015 – April 2018
