This project aims to improve the production processes for 2nd generation biofuels. Using ‘high gravity’ techniques which have higher raw material concentrations, the project will improve the economic feasibility of this promising technology.
Improving the feasibility of second generation biofuels: Objectives
- Advance technologies for production of 2nd generation liquid biofuels.
- Expand the knowledge-base on the subject.
- Use Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) as a tool to evaluate environmental impacts.
- Develop an economically feasible process towards high gravity, i.e. operating at the highest raw material concentrations as possible.
