The development of sustainable options to replace our dependence on fossil fuels for transportation has emerged as a paramount challenge in recent years. Demand for renewable fuels is growing, especially for commercial transport, such as heavy-road, aviation and marine for which a green-electric alternative is still missing. Wastes (municipal/industrial), including non-traditional biomass, may be able to overcome the economic barriers of new alternative feedstock considering their high availability and low price. This tester lecture will provide an overview on new Waste-to-Fuels processes under development at UCL, which combine the most recent advances of fluidization engineering and catalysts design to efficiently generate biofuels from waste residues.
