The integration of gasification with syngas fermentation is still in an early stage of development, where many questions exist concerning the syngas quality required. The challenge is to define the gasification conditions that will provide a H2:CO:CO2 ratio suitable for syngas fermentation, as well as to identify and remove the compounds that...

Gasification will play a mayor role in the energy transition by converting a wide range of organic and carbonaceous materials into a combustible gas, called product gas. This gas consists of H2 and CO (syngas) and instant chemicals, such as ethylene and benzene. Product gas can be used for a variety of end- products ranging from fuels to high...

Our European Unravel project will demostrate a sustainable and economically feasible biorefinery for the conversion of second generation biomass, such as forestry and agricultural residues, into chemicals and building materials. The Fabiola fractionation process lies at the heart of our work.

Biomass feedstock can be used for the production of biofuels or biobased chemicals to reduce anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Earlier studies about the techno-economic performance of biofuel or biobased chemical production varied in biomass feedstock, conversion process, and other techno-economic assumptions. This made a fair...

Within the BECOOL project, value chains based on lignocellulosic biomass are developed and investigated biomass growth, harvest, transport, thermochemical conversion and !nally catalytic synthesis of liquid biofuels. Pyrolysis is included in the thermochemical conversion as it can provide a valuable feedstock upgrading step prior to gasification...

In the present paper, laboratory produced, animal origin biofuels (swine lard and turkey lard had been used as raw material for biofuel production) were evaluated in terms of physicochemical parameters and compared with commercial mineral diesel fuel and its mixture with rapeseed oil methyl esters. Basing on the results of physicochemical...

We present guidelines for the configuration of industrial scale chromatographic separationof small molecules. We compared the performance of different axial packed beds, chan-neled monoliths and a continuous monolith assuming silica as base material. The calculatedmass transfer rates were used to calculate the height of a theoretical plate (HETP...

The recovery of 1-butanol from fermentation broth is energy-intensive since typical concentrations in fermentation broth are below 20gL -1. To prevent butanol inhibition and high downstream processing costs, we aimed at producing butyl esters instead of 1-butanol. It is shown that it is possible to perform simultaneously clostridial fermentation...

Innovation is characterized by uncertainties, high risks, large investments and late returns on investment which make it a complex process. This is particularly true for sustainable innovation where market forces alone cannot be relied upon to realize the desired transitions. Insight in the dynamics of such innovation processes is necessary in...

The natural lifestyle of Aspergillus niger made them more effective secretors of hydrolytic proteins and becomes critical when this species were exploited as hosts for the commercial secretion of heterologous proteins. The protein secretion profile of A. niger and its mutant at different pH was explored using iTRAQ-based quantitative proteomics...

Combustion behavior of various oxygenated fuels has been studied in a DAF heavy-duty (HD) directinjection (DI) diesel engine. From these fuels, it is well-known that they lead to lower particle (PM) emissions; however, for a given fuel oxygen mass fraction, there are significant differences in PM reduction. Although this can be traced back to...

The technological needs to achieve CO2 neutrality during glass manufacturing have been investigated by theoretical calculations on energy balances and experimental investigations on batch reactivity and fining efficiency. The concept is based on the assumption of utilization of woody bio fuel combustion directly over the batch blanket and glass...

India and neighbouring countries have become interested in promoting biofuels, as has been done with success in European Union. However, for them the barriers to the use of biofuels are still substantial. The ProBIOS project aims to promote biofuels for sustainable development in South and Southeast Asia. This was done by firsta thorough review...

For fuels produced from biomass, various conversion routes are availablethat follow from the different types of biomass that can serve as a feedstock. These conversion technologies are discussed in both technological and economic terms. For each route, the fuel characteristics of the biofuel are described and compared to those of the fossil fuel...

This report studies the large scale application of biofuels in roadvehicles in the Netherlands. As a result of the large emission of CO2 from road traffic and the lack of prospects for substantial reduction as long as energy demand is still increasing and fossil fuels are mainly used to meet this demand, a substitute for conventional gasoline en...
