The mission of the biomass research programme is to develop innovative and energy efficient thermochemical conversion processes for biomass feedstocks producing high grade bio-fuel products. In near and long term perspective biomass will become key as a source for renewable fuels and intermediates for carbon containing products. The biomass research programme is dedicated to adding value and sustainability to a wide range of products and to provide a viable route to large scale, sustainable production of bio-fuels.
Research is conducted to the highest international level in process development and design, optimization and integration, product upgrading and end use applications. Main mission is the development of drop-in biofuels, from process to end use application with focus on applicability to the existing hydrocarbon infrastructure.
The biomass research programme offers an excellent, exclusive and highly motivating student environment with high grade laboratory facilities and supervision. Students have the unique possibility of contributing and implementing and to follow their own ideas supported by application oriented and up-to-date project work.
