Eni, BASF Launch Bio-Propanol Biofuel Initiative (Ind. Report)
Eni, BASF
Date: 2021-07-30
Italian energy giant Eni SpA and German industrial conglomerate BASF SE are reporting a joint initiative to develop a new technology to produce bio-propanol as a drop-in transportation fuel that could reduce greenhouse-gas emissions by 65 pct to 75 pct compared to fossil fuels.

The joint initiative aims to develop bio-propanol from glycerin, a side product in the production of industrial biodiesel that Eni would buy from European producers, with a BASF catalyst. Bio-propanol produced in this way has better chemical properties than bioethanol and is therefore a valuable component for the preparation of premium gasoline, according to the release.
