Rapid pyrolosis biofuel with increased energy density

Description:

Patent Pending in Brazil, Mexico, Canada, Europe and US.

US Patent

 

The technology provides significantly improved methods for converting biomass, including woody biomass, and spent pulping/fractionation liquors, into highly deoxygenated fuels and chemicals.

 

The feedstock is treated with an alkali formate which is then heated and distilled, condensing the vapor product to form a pyrolysis oil that contains less than 30% oxygen by weight.  Lower oxygen content results in biofuel with higher energy density.
