Periodic Report 2 - PROPANERGY (Integrated bioconversion of glycerine into value-added products and biogas at pilot plant scale)

Project ID: 212671
Funded under: FP7-ENERGY

Abstract

This is the periodic summary report for the PROPANENERGY project which received funding under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). Its main aim was to develop a biorefinery process of raw glycerol from biodiesel production to produce the value-added chemical 1,3-propanediol (PDO), biogas and fertiliser, achieving thereby a complete use of the substrate and a zero release of waste material in the production. t scale and allows an easy integration into a biodiesel or a biogas plant. This innovative concept would lead to a complete use of glycerine and methanol residue from biodiesel production for a simultaneous production of energy and of two value-added products. The results achieved during this reporting period are stated.
