WP3: Extraction of high value by-products

Improvement of the economic performance of energy carriers by investigating methods for the recovery of high value chemicals and nutrients from pyrolysis condensates and HTC processes.

Study the chemical reactivity and effectiveness of the bioliquids and their fractions as precursors of thermosetting polymers.

Identification of the best conditions for the isolation of high value chemicals from the conversion.

Identification and investigation of possible applications for high value chemicals.

Optimization of HTC process parameters and separation of nutrients from the process water to close the nutrient cycle.

Project structure

The project addresses the complete value chain from feedstock potential, the investigation of pyrolysis and hydrothermal carbonisation conversion technologies, the optimisation of transport and logistics to the exploitation of the energy carrier and its by-products. The techno/economic and environmental assessment includes the complete supply chain.
