New technologies can be integrated within an existing refinery to cost-effectively blend next-generation transportation fuels

The European Union (EU) is actively defining the total goals and requirements for automotive fuels. As part of this on-going effort, the EU has defined clear targets to increase usage of renewable materials as part of the transportation fuels market. Biomass-based renewable fuels are produced outside of refineries. However, there are profitable opportunities to incorporate bio-mass-based materials into the refining industry. Modern biofuels or components can be produced and used as part of upgrading processes for a refinery. Novel technologies can manufacture premium fuel component biomass materials and integrate into the refining scheme. Bioether production can provide potential process
