Thermal Biomass Utilization

Focus of the research are biological resources and remnants, which haven't been used for energy production because of their composition, for example straw, miscanthus, weeds. The most problematic properties are low caloric values and energy densities, high water, ash and pollutant contents. These problems are approached with innovative solutions. Starting points are optimization of resources and exploration of new technological processes. We try to produce either new fuels or fuels with optimized properties such as higher solidness or caloric values for the enhancement of burning properties.
