You Wascaly Lignocellulose, deconstruct: The Digest’s 2017 Multi-Slide Guide to Catalytic Conversion of Biomass to Hydrocarbon Fuels

September 14, 2017 |

The US Department of Energy is supporting a project led by Pacific Northwest National Lab to develop a new deconstruction technology to provide low ash and low impurity sugars and sugar-derived intermediates from lignocellulosic feeds for use in catalytic and biochemical conversions.

As the researchers note, “catalysis and biochemical conversions of sugars and sugar-derived compounds can produce open-chain hydrocarbon fuel components not available through other methods,” but “ash fouls catalysts and scales reactors in catalytic processing; while organic and inorganic impurities inhibit catalysts and fermentations.”

Mike Lilga and Deanna Auberry lead the research team which prepped these illuminating slides on the project’s progress and promise for the DOE Project Peer Renew meet-up.
