Advanced biofuel production with energy system integration


To develop a long-term joint European Community Research & Innovation Agenda (ECRIA) on the integration of biofuels production and surplus grid electricity valorisation.

To solve key bottlenecks in biomass conversion technologies. i.e. efficiency, pre-treatment, gasification, gas cleaning to valorize lignin-rich residue & syngas fermentation for the sustainable production of biofuels & chemicals


To lead the optimization, upscaling (40L) and validation of 2 syngas fermentation routes for 1-butanol and butiric acid production, using thermophilic bacteria as biocatalyst and self produced syngas (2 MWt fluidized bed gasifier) as carbon source.

Sustainability Assessment of syngas fermentation route
