Production of DME from biomass and utilisation as fuel for transport and for industrial use

Objective

The overall project objective is to demonstrate production of environmentally optimised synthetic biofuel from lignocellulosic biomass at industrial scale. The final output of this demonstration is dimethylether (DME) produced from black liquor through the production of clean synthesis gas and a final fuel synthesis step. In order to check technical standards, commercial possibilities and engine compatibilities the bio-DME will be tested in a fleet consisting of 10 Volvo trucks. Research, development and demonstration will be made of improved fuel production systems and conversion technologies for the sustainable production and supply chains of DME from biomass. DME produced from black liquor can be considered as an added-value product considering a pulpmill as a biorefinery
