Projects in the Field of the Supercritical Water Gasification of Biomass

Current projects of the workgroup "Supercritical Water Gasification of Biomass": 

  • Participation in the Kopernikus project P2X (project co-funded by: Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF))
    Within the Kopernikus project P2X long-chain alcohols should be recovered by synthesis gas fermentation under high pressure. Therefore the reactor concept should be optimized. Especially the influence of high pressure on the gas-liquid mass transfer will be investigated. The simulation results will be compared and validated with experimental results.
