Bio-Oil and Beyond: The Digest’s Multi-Slide Guide to RTI’s Catalytic Upgrading tech for Thermochemical Intermediates to Hydrocarbons

January 26, 2017 |

To “Demonstrate an advanced biofuels technology that integrates a catalytic biomass pyrolysis step and a hydroprocessing step to produce infrastructure compatible biofuels,” that’s the ratuional behind a DOE project with RTI in the lead, aimed at optimizing the catalytic biomass pyrolysis process (1 ton/day) to achieve a high degree of deoxygenation, while maximizing the bio-crude production,  improve bio-crude thermal stability, evaluate the impact of bio-crude quality in the hydroprocessing step, minimize hydrogen demand of the integrated process, maximize biofuels yields.

David C. Dayton of RTI gave this illuminating overview of the technology at the DOE’s Project Peer Review sessions.
