Through thermochemical conversion processes widely different types of biomass can be converted to advanced fuels and chemicals.

The overall challenge for this platform involves generating fundamental understanding needed to support technical development of thermochemical conversion of forest-based biomass, side streams, recycled fibres, underutilised fractions, and to make the corresponding technologies competitive to those for fossil fuels.

Key areas of research: development of new and existing thermochemical processes, increased fuel-flexibility, co-production of high value products, development of tools for process optimisation

Participants: UmU (Applied Physics and Electronics), LTU (Energy Engineering, Experimental Mechanics), RISE
