Material use of biogenic raw and residual materials, CO2 and water
The innovation field of Regenerative Resources in the two working groups Biomass Fractionation and Chemical Processes deals with the development of innovative processes and processes for the material use of regenerative resources (lignocelluloses, carbohydrates, oilseed, protein fractions, CO2) for the production of chemicals. Biogas and syngas also play an increasingly important role.
Value chain from raw material to product
With the existing know-how, a wide range of process steps for the development of processes from the laboratory (TRL 3-4) to the pilot plant scale (TRL 6) can be covered. This combines processes to investigate complete value chains from raw material supply and conditioning to the isolation of material flows and its chemical transformation as well as implemented processes for effective product separation and purification. Sample quantities from kilogram to ton scale can be provided.
The techno-economic evaluation of the processes plays a decisive role in the implementation in biorefinery concepts. Together with partners, we conduct assessments that serve as the basis for further process and plant design on a demonstration or industrial scale.
