[Source: Research & Innovation] Final Conference of the EU-funded SusFuelCat FP7-Project Utilizing biomass as a renewable energy source is an important step for reducing Europe‘s dependence on fossil fuels and decreasing greenhouse gases. Biomass can serve as a base material for energy carriers like hydrogen. One advantage that hydrogen offers over fossil fuels is that when combusted it produces only water vapour instead of CO2. The EU research project SusFuelCat focuses on the production of hydrogen based on aqueous phase reforming (APR). Catalysts are the key components here and are responsible for efficiently converting biomass into hydrogen.
