Biomass Technology and Chemistry
The research at the division of Biomass Technology and Chemistry (BTK) focus on the characterization and refining of biomass to different types of biofuels and other bio-based products. The group develops cutting edge technology for pre-treatment, modification, fractionation and densification of forest and agricultural biomass, as well as residues and waste from different industries for the production of electricity, heat and more premium products in bioraffinades. On-line quality control methods are developed and used both in our research pilot and in industrial plants. Much of our research is done in close cooperation with industry.
