Sustainable biofuels are important for decarbonization of hard-to-abate sectors such as aviation, shipping and heavy-duty road transportation. BioValue and BECOOL are two sister projects under the European Union´s Horizon 2020 initiative that addresses these issues through research and development from laboratory to semi-industrial scales. The goal of the BioValue/BECOOL partnership is to explore synergies between Brazil and the European Union for biomass production, diversification of production chains and logistics for the development and sustainable deployment of advanced biofuels, with a focus on aviation biofuels, using standalone and integrated thermochemical and biochemical routes. LNBR coordinates the BioValue initiative, which is funded by Brazilian State Funding Agencies and Companies, involving a partnership of twenty Brazilian Scientific and Technological Institutions, Universities, Research Foundations and Companies.
