2 – Development of kinetic thermochemical models

Contents.

In this research line, we aim to develop and validate kinetic models for the thermochemical conversion of biomass into drop-in biofuels.

We use the data from research line 1 to fit kinetic models of the thermochemical process as well as models for bio-upgrading and refining. The kinetic models will provide reaction rates for biomass consumption and bio-oil production as a function of major variables such as temperature, residence time and water-to-biomass ratio. They also provide a prediction of bio-oil yield and products distribution to assess techno-economic process options.
