This EU-project aims to develop an innovative system for the treatment of biowaste and use of GHG emissions to produce biofuels, where macroalgae is used as a catalyser. Landfilling of biowaste is one of the major sources of methane emissions in Europe, but the treatment of biowaste still requires a strong support from the EU legislation. Therefore the project addresses difficulties in the direct utilisation of biowaste, cost-efficiency and pollution in its output products. This scenario shows the necessity to innovate in the production of cleaner renewable fuels, where the utilisation of biowaste as a feedstock and algae as a biomass source can be such an alternative way.

The kick-off meeting for Biowalk4Biofuels was held 8th and 9th April 2010 in the university of Rome La Sapienza (see picture).

NGVA Europe’s will help to establish a proper LCA (life-cycle assessment) of the various pathways that will be studied in the project and is also assisting with carrying out the evaluation of emissions and energy used when producing biogas (‘well-to-tank’ and ‘tank-to-wheels’ analyses). NGVA Europe will furthermore assist with promotion, marketing and dissemination of project results (work shops, site visits, reports) and also built the official project website http://www.biowalk4biofuels.eu/.
