Birmingham Energy Institute wins award for FlexJET project

July 14, 2020 |

In the UK, Birmingham Energy Institute is delighted to announce that their Horizon 2020 project, FlexJET has won the KETBio award for the most innovative project in Europe.

The FlexJET project converts waste biomass into sustainable jet fuel through the process of bio-refining, a concept which is decarbonizing the aviation industry. The project competed against over 300 EU projects and won this prestigious award following an expert screening by an external review panel who narrowed the 300 projects down to ten finalists. A public vote then determined which project would win first prize.

Moving forwards, FlexJET will soon be completing construction on Europe’s first pre-commercial demonstration plant for the production of advanced aviation biofuels, made exclusively from waste vegetable oil and organic solid waste biomass.
