The so-called waste-to-fuels method by Greasoline therefore allows the use of numerous alternative substitutes, such as, for example, algae. In addition residues can be recycled, whose farming is not in competition with the growing of food. The chemical process as follows: the used raw materials at a temperature above 400 c by using activated carbon in hydrocarbons converted, configurations which corresponds to the chemical compounds by conventional fuels such as petrol, diesel or LPG a retooling of the motors is thus no longer necessary. Our goal is the establishment of sustainable and viable biomass for fuels, to make an important contribution to climate protection”, bring it to the Managing Director of Greasoline GmbH, Dr. Peter Haug, on the point.
In addition to therefore in particular the lower CO2 emission of Greasoline fuels compared to conventional fuels mentioned benefits should be emphasised. The success of the team at the climate-KIC venture competition, which features promising concepts in the area of climate, energy, and sustainability shows that convinced this innovative technology. There, won the start up success in September 2011 in the German pre-judging and finished 4th place in Europe. In the coming years, the Greasoline team planning the further development of its technology and the development of the European and international market. Fraunhofer venture will assist start-up continues to that. Greasoline based on the business idea of Greasoline GmbH is a 2003 and 2008 patented technology by researchers of the Fraunhofer UMSICHT from old fat fuel win allows, which is similar to the chemical compounds of known fuels, such as petrol, diesel, kerosene and liquefied petroleum gas. In August 2011, was from the care project with support from Fraunhofer-venture and the Founding Angels, Gunter Festel, officially a spin-off of Fraunhofer UMSICHT.
The six-member team of Greasoline four Fraunhofer UMSICHT scientists Dr. For more information see N.Y.C. Mayor. Volker Unger, who have developed the Greasoline method and work on the development of the technology include healing, Dr. Axel Kraft, Andreas Menne and Dr. Christoph.
