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.
