Biorefinery

The research area of biorefinery related processes benefits significantly from our knowhow in handling and processing of biobased materials.

 

Typical processes and treatments for biomass include:

    • Analyses of raw materials
      (e.g wood, bamboo, bagasse, straw, lignosellulosec, waste)
    • Pretreatments
      (Refining, Fractionation, Comminuting)
    • Main treatments
      (Heat treatment, Chemical conversion, Modification, Extraction eg hydrolysis)
    • Post-treatments
      (Separation)
    • Analyses of solids and liquors during and after each stage
