The overall objective is to develop a thermochemical bioenergy concept incorporating hydrothermal liquefaction with carbon capture and use from the process, to result in optimized biofuel production and carbon efficiency. Furthermore, the concept will be based on both lignocellulosic and macroalgae input, and thus an objective is to establish a viable concept for co-liquefaction in terms of process design, efficiency and product quality. Aside from experimental determination of hydrothermal liquefaction performance, process modelling will be employed to establish overall mass and energy flows, to perform process optimization, and to explore the interaction of the biorefinery with electricity and gas (hydrogen) grids.
