We are pleased to announce that on 7 September the UK’s Department for Transport awarded funding for the construction of three advanced biofuels plants in the UK as part of the Advanced Biofuel Demonstration Competition launched in December 2014. E4tech has acted as delivery partner for the Competition alongside Ricardo-AEA, with E4tech director Dr Ausilio Bauen acting as chair of a distinguished twelve-strong expert selection panel. The three demonstration plants will produce butanol, ethanol, and biomethane from whiskey residues, forest residues, and biogenic municipal solid waste respectively. This is a very important initiative in proving the long term potential of advanced biofuels and E4tech looks forward to seeing these projects successfully implemented. Best wishes to the teams involved!
