Move2LowC aims to produce biofuel for the air and heavy road transport of goods and passengers sectors. This project will allow the development of a technological rationale, up to TRL 6, and a technological exploration plan that supports the investment in the production of biofuels on a commercial scale.

The main objective of the Move2LowC project is the development of biofuels for sectors such as aviation and heavy duty road transportation, by establishing different technologies to at least TRL 6, whilst establishing an exploitation plan to support the investment in biofuel production on a commercial scale.
Biotrend will apply its specialist know-how and infrastructure to optimize and scale-up fermentation processes that allow the conversion of lignocellulosic hydrolysates into lipids that can be converted to biofuels, using oleaginous yeasts.
