Liquefy thy forest: The Digest’s 2018 Multi-Slide Guide to liquefaction of forest biomass for hydrocarbon fuels

January 29, 2018 |

A team of researchers from Iowa State led by Robert Brown and supported by the DOE’s Biomass Technologies Office is aiming to demonstrate the liquefaction of forest biomass for hydrocarbon fuels, as a viable path to stable intermediates for hydrocarbon fuel blendstocks.  In many ways, this project inherits work developed at Catchlight Ventures that at one time had the promise of $2.12 per gallon biofuels — but was moved over to Iowa State for further R&D when Catchlight Energy de-emphasized the technology in the early 2010s.

The research team prepared this illuminating overview of the technology’s promise and progress for the most recent DOE Project Peer Review meetings.
