Efficient Use of Biomass for low Emission Production of Renewable Energy and biotechnological valuable Products

The targeted climate protection goals require that renewable energy sources become the main energy source of the energy supply in the future. In order to achieve this ambitious goal, it is appropriate to link conventional and renewable energy or, even better, sustainable individual processes intelligently.

The EBIPREP project is being carried out by an interdisciplinary research group consisting of chemists, process engineers, bioprocess engineers and physicists specialized in sensors and process control. The aim is to develop new solutions for the usage of woodchips and the wood juice obtained during the mechanical drying process. Besides the woodchip gasification and the catalytic cleaning of the wood gas, the use of the wood juice in biogas plants and in biotechnological production of valuable substances, e.g. in enzyme production, plays the dominant role.
