CASCATBEL Governing Board meets on 28th June 2017 in Mülheim an der Ruhr (Germany) to assess HDO pilot plant results

The 13th Governing Board meeting of CASCATBEL project was held on 28th June 2017 in Mülheim an der Ruhr (Germany) and joined representatives of 13 partners to discuss final steps in the project.

Intense work had been performed in the last months as several work-packages were close to finish and an important milestone was approaching. In the meeting, available pilot plant results were analyzed in order to determine the best catalyst for the hydrodeoxygenation step and optimum reaction conditions. Special attention was also dedicated to WP9, which had recently been launched, and aims to design and optimize the complete process, as well as to determine the commercial feasibility at commercial scale.

The CASCATBEL project has received funding from the European Community's Seventh
Framework Programme FP7/2007-2013 under Grant Agreement nº 604307
