Biomasses can act as building blocks for much more than just energy. Conversion into polymer products and composite materials are especially interesting with respect to re-cycling of materials and being an alternative to oil-based products. One of our main research areas is the application of hydrothermal processes, these mimick the natural formation of fossil fuels. At the Center for Biorefining Technologies (CBT) we have developed pilot scale reactors for hydrothermal liquefaction and carbonisation to produce sustainalbe bio-crude and hydro-char in the hundreds of kgs.
Our aim is to establish the Center for Biorefining Technologies as a central point in Denmark for upscaling and integration of biorefining technologies.
The Strategic foci of the Centre for Biorefining Technologies are:
The Centre has a wide range of pilot scale equipment available in the kg-ton scale per hour. We are always eager to collaborate if you wish to test your biorefining technology at larger scale.
Examples of our pilot scale equipment includes:
