In pursuit of economical biomass conversion, our team conducts applied research and develops novel process technologies, focusing on thermochemical conversion of biomass through pyrolysis and gasification pathways.
By combining our collective experience in advanced gasification research and catalytic conversion technologies with our state-of-the-art equipment and test systems, we are uniquely equipped to address client needs for catalytic fast pyrolysis, biocrude stabilization, and biocrude upgrading. We also perform comprehensive economic and life-cycle analyses for biofuels and bio-derived chemicals technologies.
Catalytic fast pyrolysis process for conversion of biomass including agricultural/forestry residues and municipal solid waste into liquid intermediates suitable for recovery of sustainable chemical building blocks. The product slate can be controlled by catalyst selection and use of reactive environment beside other process conditions. Liquid yields (> 20wt%) depend on feedstock and process conditions.
