Abstract

Aim : CERESiS aims to develop, assess and validate integrated biofuel production pathways linking land decontamination to appropriate bioenergy crops and environmentally & economically efficient advanced biofuel production. Objective 1 : Demonstrate the suitability and effectiveness of various conventional and novel species of energy crops for phytoremediation purposes in contaminated land , against a variety of the most common contaminants globally. Objective 2 : Demonstrate the potential of two novel thermochemical processes , i.e. Supercritical Water Gasification (SCWG) and Fast Pyrolysis (FP), for the production of biofuels and key biofuel precursors. Objective 3: Provide decision support to stakeholders and policy makers in order to achieve optimal win win solutions for site specific land decontamination through phytoremediation while simultaneously producing clean liquid biofuels.
