project: second consortium meeting in Sulzbach-Rosenberg, Germany
TO-SYN-FUEL project implements new integrated technologies in order to produce renewable liquid fuels replacing fossil fuels. These fuels are compliant with European standards for gasoline and diesel, and their production has already been demonstrated on a pilot scale.
The consortium meeting has been hosted by the project coordinator Fraunhofer UMSICHT in its premises in Sulzbach-Rosenberg, Germany, on the 25th of June 2018.
Discussions have taken place regarding the progress of activities relating to the research project TO-SYN-FUEL which will operate and demonstrate the production of Synthetic Fuels and Green Hydrogen from waste biomass.

The project coordinator took the opportunity to
present the limited hybrid vehicle Volkswagen XL1 to the partners. This
vehicle is diesel/electro driven, and is used for road applications and
promotional activities on the production and utilisation of TCR®-Diesel –
upgraded TCR®-Oil produced in Fraunhofer UMSICHT laboratories in co-work
with project partner VTS. The TCR®-fuel development is also supported by
the Bayerische Staatsministerium für Wirtschaft, Energie und Technologie
(the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Energy and

Susteen Technologies GmbH is commercializing the TCR®
technology and has built the first industrial prototype with a capacity of
7 tons per day which is currently going through a rigorous test program to
provide key inputs into the TO-SYN-FUEL demonstration plant.
