FLEDGED consortium combines 10 legal entities from 6 EU countries, including 3 universities, 3 research centres, 1 SME, 2 complementary technology providers and 1 industrial end user.
Partners involved in the consortium are leading institutes in their respective fields and cover all the key units of the biofuels production chain. The industrial partners provide industrial expertise and exploitation potential, while technical-scientific higher education and research partners provide R&D competences in experimental testing, component modelling and materials developmen:
- flexible SEG process will be developed through experimental tests by University of Stuttgart and CSIC, component modelling by Lappeenranta University and economic and scale-up study by SHI-FW;
- SEDMES process will be developed through experimental tests by ECN part of TNO and CSIC, component modelling by POLIMI and ECN part of TNO and economic and scale-up study by Frames;
- overall and comprehensive system analysis will be ensured through process integration and economic analysis by POLIMI and Frames, study of risk and socio-economic aspects by INERIS, sustainability analysis by QUANTIS.
Moreover, commercial exploitation of the results of the research is ensured at different levels by the industrial partners, that are potential technology providers and potential short-term end-user of the technology.
