ABC-Salt is an exciting project that stands for Advanced Biomass Catalytic Conversion to Middle Distillates in Molten Salts. Nine European partners are working together to reduce dependence on fossil fuels by looking at how to produce liquid biofuels for the transport industry using a range of different waste streams. The aim is to create a process that works efficiently at laboratory level.

This four-year project launched in April 2018 and is funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. See our events page for news of workshops and summer schools which brings researchers of all levels together to share, collaborate and connect.
