Scientists turn wood into biofuel at DTU Chemical Engineering's pilot plant (360 video)

Click around in the pilot plant of DTU's Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering in Denmark as a researcher is pouring bio-oil from the huge H2CAP equipment. It's a new process for turning 2. generation biomass into diesel and gasoline which has now been developed. It's an integrated process for high pressure pyrolysis of biomass and catalytic hydrogen upgrading of bio-oil before it is condensed as liquid product. In the process small wood chips are heated to typically 450 ° C in a hydrogen-containing atmosphere and at a pressure of about 15-30 bar in the presence of a catalyst in a fluid bed reactor. The project is called H2CAP and is a collaboration between DTU's department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering and department of Mechanical Engineering as well as Stanford University, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the Danish company Haldor Topsøe. The project is funded Innovation Fund Denmark. For more information go to: http://www.kt.dtu.dk/english/research/chec/projects/h2cap

DTU Chemical and Biochemical Engineering new Building 228A short preview

Quick preview of new Building 228A construction process. DTU Chemical Engineering is a fast-growing department—in terms of both staff and research results. With new state-of-the-art facilities, DTU Chemical Engineering is able to expand the framework for research, education, and innovation. The new building 228A is part of a larger transformation of DTU Lyngby campus.
