Pulp and Paper Industry Wastes to Fuel

Project description

Turning pulp mill residues into biofuels

Cellulosic fibres for paper are made from wood via a chemical pulping process. This process extracts cellulose from wood, generating large residue streams such as bark and back liquor. These residue streams can be found on all pulp mills and can be converted into biofuels. The conversion is based on gasification followed by Fischer Tropsch fuel synthesis yielding a high-quality liquid transport fuel at a reasonable cost. The EU-funded Pulp&Fuel project will show how fuels can be produced efficiently without a negative impact on the pulp mill operations. The project studies supercritical water gasification adapted to wet resources and dry gasification adapted to dry resources such as bark. The aim of the project is to achieve high gasification efficiencies.
