Biomass and energy conversion laboratory focus on biorefinery, which is a facility that integrates biomass conversion processes and equipment to produce fuels, power, and chemicals from biomass. The biorefinery concept is analogous to today’s petroleum refineries, which produce multiple fuels and products from petroleum. By producing multiple products, a biorefinery can take advantage of the differences in biomass components and intermediates and maximize the value derived from the biomass feedstock.

 

Biomass and energy conversion laboratory’s biorefinery concept is built on two different ‘Platforms’ to promote different product slates. The first platform is based on subcritical water. The other platform is based on thermochemical conversion processes and focuses on the pyrolysis  of biomass feedstoks and by-product conversion processes.
