Výskum integrovaných technológií výroby motorových palív druhej generácie z biokvapalín (APVV)
Research of second generation biofuels production technology (APVV)
Project aims and objectives
The project is intended to develop upgrading of bio-oils from fast pyrolysis and Hydro Thermal Upgrading (HTU) that, following appropriate treatments of the products, would enable their use as liquid fuels for transportation.
The subject of the project is also the development and testing of the catalyst for aldol condensation of biooil oxygenates and catalytical elimination of oxygenates and their transformation to hydrocarbons.
The second generation of biofuels should preferably use the waste materials. Products will be fully compatible with existing fuels from oil, thus eliminating storage and logistical problems. In principle, more technological procedures are examinating, taking into account the automotive strategy, logistics, transport, raw materials, CO2 savings, compatibility with existing fuels and the possibility of integration with existing refinery technologies.
Suggested methodology for the project implementation
Briefly, the research direction can be described as follows:
