BIO-OIL - BLACK GOLD BUT CLIMATE-FRIENDLY
Will it really come - the end of combustion engines by 2035? Not necessarily, because fuels can also be obtained from our bio-oil! This is demonstrated by KIT (Karlsruhe) with its "reFuels - rethinking fuels" project launched in 2019. In the bioliq® entrained flow gasification plant, for example, bio-oil has already been successfully converted into a gas since 2013 and converted into gasoline and diesel according to the Fischer-Tropsch principle.
A great pilot project in our opinion - so Germany can continue to have gasoline in its blood, thanks to regenerative reFuels instead of eFuels. So that our green electricity is not already used up by the transport sector alone!
What is bio-oil?
A black, viscous oil with good pumpability and storage stability at approx. 30°C. The quantity produced and the associated calorific value are considerable: Thus, approx. 25% of the original wood calorific value is converted into pyrolysis oil. For a Kombi Power system with 770 kW electrical power and 7000 full load hours, this is approx. 930,000 kg per year! The heating value of the oil varies slightly depending on the water content and is approx. 2/3 compared to heating oil.
The BDI laboratory in Graz has already been able to test 200 liters of our bio-oil for usability in bio-refineries and has found that it has good boiling behavior. From our research projects, a whole range of other possible applications emerged, such as direct use in slow-running large engines, as a base material for biophenols in the chemical industry.
The pyrolysis oil is conventionally used in the Kombi Power System to provide heat and for post-combustion of the engine exhaust gases. However, the system can be easily modified to temporarily store the pyrolysis oil if required and to discharge it externally. Please contact us about possible customers!
