Call For Tender - Execution of a fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) pilot process using pyrolysis oil

Under the Renewable Energy Directive, fuels produced through co-processing can be accounted for their bio-based part. The European Commission sees the need for a verifiable option for allocating that bio-based content. As co-processing in a refinery is no constant factor, a viable alternative to Carbon14 testing – which is quite imprecise at the low levels of bio-based content - is required.
