1st Technical meeting of heat-to-fuel project

Next 20-21 November, the group of Energy Storage of IREC will host the first technical meeting of the "Heat-to-fuel" project. HtF is a Horizon 2020 EU-funded project carried out by 14 partners from across Europe that aims to deliver the next generation of biofuel production technologies supporting the de-carbonisation of the transportation sector, aiming at to deliver cost-competitive technologies achieving biofuel prices below €1 per litre. Heat-to-fuel will upgrade alternative, residual biomass feedstocks and conversion of excess heat to liquid fuels in a combined Gasification, Fischer Tropsch and Aqueous Phase Reforming plant. At the end of the project, the know-how acquired will allow scalability at a demonstration level before commercialization, representative of the next generations of sustainable biofuel technologies. The project started on September 2017 and will last four years. Besides IREC, Güssing Energy Technologies (project coordinator), TU Wien (Austria), Beta Renewables (Italy), IREC (Spain), IChPW (Poland), RECORD (Italy), POLITO (Italy), Bioenergy2020+ (Austria), CRF (Italy), CEA (France), Johnson Matthey (UK), Atmostat (France), R2M (Spain) and Skupina Fabrika (Slovenia) are involved in the project.

22a Setmana de la Ciència

Per celebrar la 22a edició de la Setmana de la Ciència, els dies 14, 15 i 17 de novembre de 2017, l'IREC oferirà diferents tallers amb activitats variades:

Les energies renovables son indispensables per minimitzar el canvi climàtic que ja està succeint. El problema d'aquestes fonts d'energia és la seva intermitència en la producció. Els investigadors de l'IREC treballen per desenvolupar un sistema que permet emmagatzemar aquesta electricitat que ve de les fonts renovables en forma de gas, que es podrà utilitzar en el moment que la demanda energètica ho necessiti. Així s'aconsegueix una font d'energia més flexible i neta.

En aquest taller els investigadors explicaran el funcionament del sistema power to gas. Posteriorment es farà una visita als laboratoris de l’IREC.
