Procedure for formulating, testing and evaluating fuels in five phases

  • In phase 1, the REF4FU partners define the portfolio of possible fuel components for the various application sectors, for which refinery concepts are designed in WP 4.
  • In phase 2, the potential fuel design space for the various fuel applications is defined in WP 2 and WP 3, which is possible by combining the various fuel components.
  • In phase 3, systematic screenings of the fuel formulations of the design space proposed in phase 2 are carried out for each application sector in order to identify those products that can be used in current and future fuel scenarios.
  • In phase 4, the product areas identified in phase 3 and the associated process routes will be evaluated technically, ecologically, and economically in WPs 2, 3, and 4, and synergies and optimization potentials will be identified.
  • In phase 5, the various individual assessments are brought together in WP 5 and evaluated against the background of the regulatory framework concerning possible implementation.
