Valorisation of Pyrolysis Products
Valorization of Waste Lignocellulose Biomass Residues Sequestered from Quebec’s La Tuque Forests into Renewable Biofuels for Long-haul Transportation Sectors via the IH2 Technology (Project B.E.L.T)
Short Introductive summary
A country’s national goals must not only take into account technological advances in engineering, science, and agro-economics but also focus on equitable energy consumption and distribution to meet the needs of a growing population without sacrificing the needs of future generations and the wealth of ecosystems. Population growth inevitably leads to high energy demand, especially from the industrial and commercial sectors, which is mostly met by large quantities of oil, natural gas, coal, and other fossil fuels that are harmful to the environment. The introduction of the concept of renewable energy production and use has brought a series of benefits in terms of combating the climate crisis and reducing dependence on costly foreign energy imports. It is imperative that each country conduct a thorough review of its own situation, strengths, and weaknesses; and implement solutions tailored to its own characteristics. In the case of Canada, water and forest biomass are emerging as key renewable inputs. Our project will, therefore, focus on producing bioenergy from local biomass, which will ensure a definitive but progressive transition to a greener economy.
