Description

The course will give an overview of biomass resource studies and mapping; What is sustainable biomass and how to certify; types of biomass (e.g. woody biomass, forest residues, agricultural residues, energy crops and algaes etc.); pretreatment technologies & physical and chemical characteristics; biomass conversion technologies; mainly focused on biochemical (anaerobic digestion and fermentation processes) conversion processes; Bioefinery processes into fuels and higher value products; advanced biofuels from biomass; liquid biofuels for transportation; biogas and methanization; value-added processing of biofuel residues; economic and environmental assessments; policies and future R&D.

  • The role of biomass resources in the global renewable energy supply.
  • Sustainablity & biomass mapping.
  • Substrate characteristics & pretreatment methods.
  • Conversion processes and conversion technologies for liquid and gaseous biofuels
  • Anearobic digestion and optimized biogas production – incl. Study tour during the course.
  • Biorefinery production of advanced biofuels and other medium to high value refinery products.
