Research Structure


The research activities of TMFB are organized in two major "Integrated Research Fields" (IRF): IRF-A "From Biomass to Biofuels" and IRF-B "From Biofuels to Propulsion". These research fields are linked by the "Core Interaction Field" (CIF) "Fuel Design".

CIF- Fuel Design

The Core Interaction Field strives to develop a model-based description of the entire process chain from biofuel production to fuel conversion in the combustion engine, eventually leading to the envisioned model-based fuel design.

IRF-A - From Biomass to Biofuels

The IRF-A addresses the conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to tailor-made fuels via selective chemical and bio-chemical transformation processes.

IRF-B - From Biofuels to Propulsion

The main aim is to describe and understand all properties of the new biofuels in order to modify and define desired fuel properties for clean and efficient combustion.

SCA- Supplemantary Cluster Activities

In SCA, interdisciplinary collaboration is explored within the Cluster of Excellence “Tailor-Made Fuels from Biomass.” Furthermore, methods and tools to improve the cooperation within the Cluster of Excellence are developed, adapted and implemented.
