liquid water present

Feedstocks: All types of biomass, domestic, agricultural and industrial residues, wood

Also wet feedstocks, no drying required

Chemistry: Oxygen removed as Carbon Dioxide

Products 45 Biocrude(%w on feedstock, dry basis)

25 Gas (> 90% CO2)

20 H2O

10 dissolved organics (e.g., acetic acid, methanol)

Thermal efficiency: 70 - 90 %

htu product
HTU Product

Biocrude Heavy organic liquid

Not miscible with water

Oxygen content 10 - 18 %w

LHV 30 -35 MJ/kg

Applications

Biocrude as such: (co)combustion in coal- and oil- fired power stations

After upgrading (hydrogenation): premium diesel fuel; kerosene

luboil base stock

chemicals feedstock (cracker)

htu product flexibility
HTU PRODUCT FLEXIBILITY
  • Direct combustion as a liquid
  • (replacement of fossil fuels)
  • Combustion as a solid fuel
  • (cofiring with coal)
  • Emulsified fuel (type “Orimulsion”)
  • Replacement of charcoal
  • Upgraded product

THERMAL EFFICIENCY

Definition:

th = (LHV of biocrude output) * 100 %

(LHV of feed) + (LHV from external fuel)

For present process design:

th = 55.62 * 100% = 74.9 %

72.98 + 1.3

(Theoretical maximum for this case is 78.6 %)

upgrading of biocrude by hdo
Upgrading of biocrude by HDO
  • Principle of catalytic Hydrodeoxygenation has been
  • demonstrated
  • Upgrading cost compensated by higher product value
  • Diesel fraction has excellent ignition properties
  • Potential applications:
      • Transport fuel
      • Kerosine
      • Fuel in high-efficient gas turbine
      • Feedstock for chemicals (via ethylene cracker)
      • Etc. etc.
