NET-Fuels 6-month Review at Fraunhofer UMSICHT

From 18-19 April, the team met at Fraunhofer UMSICHT in Sulzbach-Rosenberg, Germany to discuss progress over the first 6 months of the project.

A representative of each the project organisations gave an overview of their work to date. This included updates on project management, data management, oxy-combustion modelling, bio-electrical-methanisation design, soil enrichment, exploitation planning, and dissemination and outreach.

The team then enjoyed an evening meal at Sperber Bräu: Brauereigasthof; a traditional Bavarian restaurant and brewery in the heart of the historic town of Sulzbach-Rosenberg.

"This included visiting the 500kg/hr waste conversion facility developed in the ToSynFuel project."

On the second day, the team were given a tour of the Fraunhofer facilities. This included visiting the waste conversion facility built as part of the ToSynFuel project. This facility is able to convert up to 500kg/hour of sewage sludge into drop-in bio-fuels, bio-oils, syngas, and green hydrogen.

Central to this facility is the unique Thermo-Catalytic Reforming (TCR) technology. TCR is being developed and optimised as part of the NET-Fuels project to work on farming waste.
