Bio-oil components as a basis for a biorefinery, producing green chemicals, transportation fuels and energy
The Bio-oil Refinery project aims at developing technology for producing and fractionating bio-oil components as a basis for a biorefinery producing green chemicals, transportation fuels and energy.
Biomass liquefaction is done by fast pyrolysis, which is a pretreatment technology that is very flexible with respect to feedstock.
Fast pyrolysis also brings efficient energy densification, which makes the technology suitable for decentralised bio-oil production of wood waste materials with favourable transport costs.
The project is a cooperation between PFI, Aston University and partners from industry and is managed by PFI. The project is partly funded by the Research Council of Norway (The RENERGI programme).
