FUNDING BIOFUELS RESEARCHERS
JOINT RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
15 PROJECT PARTNERS
Applications for BRISK2 are now closed, this website will remain active until 31-Oct-2024 but will not be monitored during that time.
Boost your biofuels research with one of our 15 project partners
Funded by EU Horizon 2020, BRISK2 aims to improve the success of international biofuels research and implementation.
BRISK2’s main activity is to provide researchers from around the world with access to biological and thermal biomass conversion facilities across Europe by facilitating Transnational Access (TA).
Eligible researchers can apply to utilise the unique facilities and expertise of any BRISK2 research partner outside of their home country. Funding is available for short-term experimental research visits, along with a capped grant for travel, accommodation and subsistence.
Applications are assessed all year round and individuals or groups of researchers at any stage in their career from industry and academia are welcome to apply. Where travel is not available we may be able to accommodate virtual visits. Our teams of experts at any of our facilities will conduct the experiments on your behalf and send you your results. Furthermore, should your engagement result in a paper, we will assist in open access publications.
End of the projectAnd the technical concept worked!The ABC salt project aimed to effectively convert waste biomass streams to middle distillates using molten salt pyrolysis in combination with catalytic hydrotreatment at a TRL level of 3-4. The ultimate technical...

In order to reduce dependence on fossil resources, new biomass feedstocks need to be developed to produce bio-based materials and bio-based energy. However, new biomass feedstocks can differ significantly from classic biomassfeedstocks, such as wood. These differences...
