Powering a Greener Future for Aviation and Marine Transport

FUEL-UP aims at transforming forest waste into advanced biofuels to enable the green transition and the decarbonisation of the aviation and the marine transport sectors

100% Biogenic Feedstock

FUEL-UP will demonstrate the production of renewable sustainable aviation fuels and marine fuels from 100% biogenic waste.

80% Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction

FUEL-UP aims at achieving up to 80% reduction in GHG emissions compared to fossil fuels and 47% compared to the state-of-the-art advanced biofuels as well as to provide scenarios for green hydrogen production.

Creating New EU Value Chains for Biofuels Production

FUEL-UP plans for development, roadmaps and scale-up will ensure that new value chains arise by 2030 and replicate by 2035 to then deploy at EU level by 2040 in 25 sites among the 12 potential countries in EU.

Paving the Way to Marine and Aviation Fuel Certification

FUEL-UP will pave the way to EU certification of processes and products in order to ensure that production is compatible with practical usage and it is socially accepted.
