The Karlsruhe bioliq® Process – Integrated Processes to Produce Synthetic Fuels
and Bulk Chemical Products from Dry Residual Biomass – Tuesday 27th March 2018.


Biomass-to-Liquids (BtL) – The bioliq® Process

The bioliq® pilot plant covers the complete process chain required for producing customized fuels from residual biomass. For energy densification of the biomass, fast pyrolysis is applied. The liquid pyrolysis oil and solid char obtained can be processed into intermediate fuels of high energy density. Fuel and chemicals production from syngas requires high pressures. Therefore, syngas production is already performed at pressures up to 80 bar by entrained flow gasification. Gas cleaning and conditioning are conducted at the same pressure at high temperatures allowing for optimal heat recovery and thus improved energy efficiency. In the bioliq® pilot plant the purified syngas is firstly converted into dimethyl ether and then further to gasoline.

There is no extra charge to join the site visit, although places are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis. Please confirm your attendance when booking for the conference to avoid disappointment.
