Project

Methanol fuel synthesis from biomass-based gas mixtures

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

As a part of a large research project (SYNFUEL) with multiple universities and industrial partners, the project addresses a novel approach to produce sustainable biofuels: electrolytic hydrogen is added to biomass gasification productgas and thus expanding the biomass resources. Via a specialized catalyst it is possible to synthesize biofuels such as methanol and methane.

The student project goal is to produce a proof of principle: to show production of methanol and methane from gasified biomass by exploiting hydrogen and oxygen from SOEC electrolysis. The project will utilize existing small-scale catalytic modules capable of converting syngas to either fuel. The project will namely use synthetic gas mixtures.
