Project: 101084405 - CRONUS - HORIZON -CL5-2021-D3-03
The overall approach is built on insights from research on ‘sustainability transitions’ that analyses innovation within socio-technical systems.
The project will be delivered by 13 participant organisations representing 8 European countries
Functional prototypes developed from optimised lab-scale technological processes will be designed, constructed and tested
The overall objective of CRONUS is to develop, assess and test 5 new integrated and sustainable technological solutions for highly efficient biogenic effluent gases CUS within the biofuels value chain.
In order to achieve a strategic capture, utilization and storage of biogenic effluent gases within biofuels production lines, integrated processes will be up-scaled according to the optimized scenarios derived during lab scale investigation. In this context, 5 Functional Prototypes will be designed, constructed and tested in a relevant environment.
Detailed analysis and evaluation of inter and intraregional biogenic effluent gases within biofuels value chain
Engagement of society in the co-design, co-development and co-implementation of carbon negative biofuels innovations
Development of efficient, clean, sustainable, secure and competitive technological solutions for biogenic gases utilisation within the biofuels value chain
Comprehensive identification and assessment of the environmental and socio-economic impacts of the new proposed solutions through a life-cycle assessment
Definition of the guidelines for industrialisation and application of the biogenic gases CUS technologies
To bridge scientists and policymakers
To disseminate and communicate CRONUS objective and results
CRONUS will deliver a unique platform of novel technologies, suitable for easy integration to the existing biofuels production plants, able to upcycle dissimilar kinds of biogenic effluent gases to biofuels ready to be distributed within installed grids and biochar, as biogenic carbon sink.
