1 – Development of Thermochemical Conversion Process

Contents.

In this research line, we aim to design biorefineries based on hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) of biomass.

Currently, thermochemical conversion is the most competitive route to transform lignocellulosic biomass into drop-in biofuels. Experiments with the various sources of biomass from the selected case studies will analyse the influence of major reactor variables such as temperature, residence time and water-to-biomass ratio. The results of this research line are used to develop kinetic models in research line 2.

Expected Results

  • Yields and characteristics of the different products from HTL.
  • Influence of feedstock properties and HTL process conditions on bio-crude production.
