Periodic Report - SUPER METHANOL (Reforming of crude glycerine in supercritical water to produce methanol for re-use in biodiesel plants)

Project ID: 212180
Funded under: FP7-ENERGY

Abstract

This is the periodic report of the SUPER METHANOL project, funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). SUPER METHANOL aims to produce methanol from crude glycerine, and re-use the methanol in a biodiesel plant. The project aims to improve the energy balance, the carbon performance, the sustainability and the overall economics of biodiesel production, and to reduce the sensitivity of biodiesel plant economics to volatile methanol and glycerine prices.

The document describes the project context and gives information on the work performed so far under its work packages. Additionally the summary discusses the expected results and their impact.
