October 08, 09: As Europe’s leading automotive fuel refiner and marketer, Total is committed to stepping up the development of second-generation biofuels, which are needed to improve the environmental profile of crop-based fuels and avoid the use of food crops as feedstock.
Already a partner in France’s Futurol project to develop second-generation bioethanol, Total has expressed an interest in actively participating in the BioTfueL project. In particular:
- it has offered to provide more than 30% of the financing required of the project partners;
- share the expertise and dedication of its R&D teams;
- and host a pilot unit to test the process at an existing plant, which would reduce the associated costs.
Total hopes that this project will be deployed as soon as possible.
