Chemical Looping gAsification foR sustainAble production of biofuels


To further develop Chemical Looping Gasification, which has by now only been investigated in lab-scale up to 25 kWth feedstock input, using a broad range of pilot plants up to a size of 1 MWth.

To demonstrate next generation sustainable liquid biofuels full process chain including biomass pre-treatment, gasification, syngas treatment, Fischer-Tropsch (FT) synthesis, and FT-wax hydrocracking.


To lead  biomass (straw) pretreatment optimized methods and trials.  Including heat treatment , pelletizing, washing or additives (following the activities performed in SECTOR project around the production of solid sustainable energy carriers from biomass by torrefaction.

Economic assessment of feedstock supply.

Environmental assessment of the whole production process.
