Abstract
The FLEXFUEL project aims to prove that organic waste, sludge from wastewater treatment plants, animal manure and energy crops may be converted to fertiliser and to ethanol and biogas for motor fuel. This type of treatment plant can be used all over Europe and can produce ethanol at the same price as upgraded biogas. Furthermore the project has as objective to demonstrate how a gradual change to increased use of ethanol may take place with public as wll as private owners of motor vehicles.
