JOINT WEBINAR: SUSTAFUELS, Three European Solutions Working on Algal & Renewable Fuels

On May 21, 2024, an informative webinar titled “SUSTAFUELS, Three European Solutions Working on Algal & Renewable Fuels” was held from 12:00 to 13:00 CET. This online event was a collaborative effort among three key projects—ALFAFUELS, COCPIT, and FUELGAE—aimed at advancing renewable fuel technologies. Attendees were introduced to the main concepts, ambitions, and methodologies behind these innovative European initiatives. The event was structured in six parts, including presentations on non-biological algal renewable fuels, detailed discussions on each project, and a Q&A session.

The webinar was moderated by Pablo Morales Moya from Sustainable Innovations (SIE), and featured a presentation from Javier Sánchez López of CINEA, who discussed the agency’s role in supporting climate, infrastructure, and environmental initiatives. Following the introductory segments, the spotlight shifted to the project coordinators. Charis Xiros from RISE Research Institutes of Sweden presented the ALFAFUELS project, Sary Awad from IMT Atlantique showcased the COCPIT project, and Silvia Morales de la Rosa from CSIC presented the FUELGAE project. Each coordinator provided insights into their project’s objectives, impacts, and collaborative efforts.

Participants had the opportunity to learn about groundbreaking renewable fuel solutions and their potential for carbon capture. The event underscored the importance of European collaboration in tackling environmental challenges through innovative research and development. Recordings of the session will be used for dissemination purposes, ensuring that the knowledge shared continues to benefit a wider audience interested in sustainable fuel technologies.
