Takin’ out the oxygen with electro-deoxygenation: The Digest’s 2017 Multi-Slide Guide to upgrading bio-oil

Takin’ out the oxygen with electro-deoxygenation: The Digest’s 2017 Multi-Slide Guide to upgrading bio-oil

September 18, 2017 |

The US Department of Energy is supporting a project to demonstrate the techno‐economic feasibility of upgrading biomass derived pyrolysis oil using electro-deoxygenation process. A ceramic membrane that selectively transports oxygen under an applied electric potential is integrated with a fast pyrolysis unit for in-situ removal of oxygen to stabilize bio-oil. Overall, the research team led by Elango […]

New study highlights fast pyrolysis bio-oil yields of 17-27% from cellulosic feedstocks

New study highlights fast pyrolysis bio-oil yields of 17-27% from cellulosic feedstocks

April 26, 2015 |

In Washington state, a new study released in the journal Energy & Fuels is providing the first, fully integrated assessment of common feedstocks from the field to refinery-ready crude fuel, based on hydrotreatment or fast pyrolysis. The assessment capture valuable feedstock performance data (yields) during each step throughout the process, and examined six different pure […]

DOE announces $12M funding opportunity for bio-oil, pyrolysis R&D

DOE announces $12M funding opportunity for bio-oil, pyrolysis R&D

December 17, 2012 |

In Washington, the US Department of Energy announced up to $12 million for up to five R&D projects that will improve the carbon, hydrogen, and separation efficiencies in bio-oil production and upgrade processes. The aim of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (DE-FOA-0000812) is also to boost biofuel yields from non-food-based lignocellulosic feedstocks such as agricultural residue, […]

DOE to award up to $15M for bio-oil R&D; catalysis, separation, analytics in focus

DOE to award up to $15M for bio-oil R&D; catalysis, separation, analytics in focus

April 13, 2012 |

In Washington, the DOE is making up to $15 million available to demonstrate biomass-based oil supplements that can be blended with petroleum.  These “bio-oil” precursors for renewable transportation fuels could be integrated into the oil refining processes that make conventional gasoline, diesel and jet fuels without requiring modifications to existing fuel distribution networks or engines.
