Hydrogenation of TCR®-Oils - a Route to Renewable Chemicals and Fuels

Short Introductive summary

The Thermo-Catalytic Reforming (TCR®) enables the production of renewable fuel as well as the production of renewable chemicals from residual and waste biomass. TCR® is a process recently developed which is based on intermediate pyrolysis with integrated reforming. At temperatures up to 700 °C in the reforming zone, a hydrogen rich gas and a high-grade bio-oil are produced. The various advantages of using the TCR®-oil are the lower oxygen and water content compared to other bio-oils as well as the most important characteristic, its thermal stability, which makes it distillable and applicable for other thermal processes. The aim of this work is to generate renewable high quality hydrocarbons resulting by the hydrogenation of the crude TCR®-oil. Through hydrogenation, the hydrogen content was increased and the oxygen, sulfur, nitrogen content was significant lowered or respectively removed close to zero. In long term, the combination of TCR® and hydrogenation of the TCR®-oil is a promising approach to produce CO2 neutral fuels and chemicals to substitute fossil oil.

Presenter's biography

I studied chemistry in Munich and I get the Master degree in February 2018. In July 2018 I start with my PhD at Frauhofer UMSICHT institute branch Sulzbach-Rosenberg in the group for energy technologies.
