Carbon Negative Biofuels from Organic Waste

“CARBIOW project will convert the organic fraction of waste to carbon-negative biofuels…”

“…and will generate a new negative carbon footprint construction materials”

Making possible the impossible!


CARBIOW (Carbon Negative Biofuels from Organic Waste) is a Research and Innovation Action funded by the European Commission under the Horizon Europe Programme, which addresses green transition and circular economy by proposing novel technologies that cover the whole process of conversion of organic waste to maritime and aviation biofuels.

The goal of CARBIOW is to establish an efficient and scalable process to convert the Organic Fraction of Municipal Solid Waste (OFMSW) and other hard-to-utilize solid organic wastes to biofuels.

The project recieved 4.8 million euros from the EU’s Horizon Europe programme, after scoring the maximum amount in the evaluation process (15 points).

The consortium is composed of 12 partners spread around Europe: FeyeCon, Universiteit Maastricht and VERTORO from the Netherlands, IVL Svenska Miljoeinstitutet from Sweden, NIC from Slovenia, Svaheia Eiendom AS from Norway, Sumitomo SHI FW from Finland, Technische Universitat Darmstadt from Germany, VITO from Belgium, and  BIOPLAT, Cementos La Cruz, and the leader, Fundación Tecnalia Research & Innovation, from Spain
