Pyrolysis is a well-known process for biomass upgrading, and a great deal of works are available about it. However, they focus on conventional lignocellulosic samples, and the information about any other less common samples, while still valuable, is very difficult to find. For instance, Brazilian ginseng (Pfaffia glomerata) is a feedstock without hemicellulose and a […]
Dentro del marco del proyecto europeo SHYMAN el Grupo de Procesos a Presión ha colaborado con la Fundación del Centro de Supercomputación de Castilla y León situado en el CRAI-TIC (Centro TIC de Recursos para el Aprendizaje y la Investigación) del Campus de la Universidad de León. Para más detalles de la colaboración se puede […]
A suitable technique to upgrade biomass is an essential point in order to make it possible to develop a sustainable economy based on biomass sources. One likely and green option to extract chemicals from biomass is hydrothermal processing. A process that only requires water, high temperature and pressure to fractionate biomass. In the same way, […]
In this research, the heat and pressure integration possibilities of the supercritical water hydrolysis process are analyzed. The main objective is to improve the global energetic efficiency and therefore reduce the consumption of utilities.
