Advanced liquid biofuels production from bio-waste

  • 2020-2022

PROJECT SCOPE

  • Demonstrate the feasibility of hydrothermal liquefaction technology (HTL) at TRL 4 as a simple, sustainable and efficient solution for the production of advanced liquid biofuels from bio-waste. In short:
    • Produce bio-crude from:
    • Sewage sludge
    • Organic fraction of municipal solid waste
    • Define the improvement treatments (upgrading)
    • Evaluate co-processing strategies
    • Bio-crude production in continuous

CENER ROLE

  • Project leader & coordinator
  • Raw materials, operating conditions and pre-treatment stages selection
  • Design and construction of a continuous pilot plant for bio-crude production
  • HTL tests execution to produce biocrude both batch and continuous
