Valorisation of liquid and solid fractions of 2nd generation biofuel production processes

  • 2016-2018

PROJECT SCOPE

Valorize different fractions produced in 2G biofuel production plants  that nowadays, do not have a clear industrial use, especially lignin rich fractions, among others.

As for the phenol-derived products, high value-added aromatic compounds of wide use in fine chemistry, pharmaceuticals and food are foreseen.

CENER ROLE

  • Characterization & selection of residual biomass from forestry
  • Termochemical pre-treatment and enzimatic hydrolysis trials:
    • Laboratory screening tests
    • Pilot plant runs (200l reactor)
  • Lignin stream valorization:
    • Depolymerization routes à hydroxylated polyethers & phenolic aromatic products.
    • First trials ongoing
