Tailor-Made Fuels from Biomass (TMFB)

Duration: 2017 – 2018 (Bridge Funding)

Funding: Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation) (DFG), Wissenschaftsrat (WR)

Project Partners: Various institutions of RWTH Aachen University supported by partner institutions


Goal of the (sub-)project is the analysis and design of sustainable supply chains for fuel production considering a hybrid approach of Biomass- and Power-to-Fuel technologies. On the input side, interdependencies with the electricity system will be considered. On the demand side, risk perception as well as acceptance will be taken into account. Furthermore, an integrated assessment considering economic, ecological and social criteria will be conducted.

For a successful implementation, an interdisciplinary cooperation with chairs from the field of social science (Prof. Ziefle), technical thermodynamics (Prof. Bardow) as well as power (Prof. Moser) and process engineering (Prof. Mitsos) will be established.
