Global Process To Improve Cynara cardunculus Exploitation for Energy Applications.

Objective

The proposal aims at demonstrating technical and economical feasibility of a global process for cardoon (Cynara cardunculus L.) exploitation for energy applications. This energy crop is appropriated for Mediterranean Area, where high problems about water i nsufficient exist. A combined process to produce a low-cost liquid biofuel from seeds and energy from lignocellulosic biomass is proposed. Different technologies for biomass energy conversion will be researched and compared. Additionally to increase compet itiveness and breaking the cost barriers, new heterogeneous catalysis for liquid biofuel production will be tested.
