The goal of the BIOREFLY project is the construction of a 2,000 ton/y bio jet fuel plant. It will use lignin cake obtained from the conversion of both dedicated energy crops and agro residues in the second generation bioethanol production biorefinery in Italy. Even if the plant will have a quite small size comparing to the big commeracial plants, it will be a prove of concept for the next scale-up to a full commercial scale.
The BIOREFLY plant will produce a fuel that respects Jet A/Jet A-1 specifications. This biofuel will serve for testing in turbines, aircracft engines and demonstration flights.
