Thermochemical Conversion Routes
The thermochemical conversion routes aim to produce furanics-based fuels from seaweed specific carbohydrates. Furanics refers to compounds which have a furan ring in their structure. The production of furfural from alginic acid has been demonstrated at analytical scale, i.e. mg/ experiment, and we aim further to develop this step to a continuous laboratory scale at the kg/hr scale. Furfural can then be used as an intermediate for the production of fuels. Furthermore, we aim to implement Avantium’s innovative fractionation scheme in the production of the furanics- based biofuels chain from threedifferent carbohydrates (e.g. alginate, laminaran and rhamnose) at the kg scale.
