15th May 2015 - First of May 2015 SYNCOM started the new research and innovation project “Photofuel”

Photofuel - Biocatalytic solar fuels for sustainable mobility in Europe. Photofuel studies and advances the biocatalytic production of alternative liquid transportation fuels, which require only sunlight, CO2 and water. Microbial cells directly excrete hydrocarbon and long chain alcohol fuel compounds to the medium from which they are separated, without the need to harvest biomass. To achieve this aim 12 research and industrial parties have joined forces under the lead of Volkswagen AG. The project will be funded by the European Union with 6 Million € during a four year period from May 2015 to April 2019. SYNCOM role is the classical project management and support by their experience in administration of European R&D projects. Further information:
