Abstract

The goal of the project is to evaluate the economical feasibility of novel integrated biorefinery concepts in which high added value compounds are recovered and biofuel are produced with aid of sub/supercritical fluid-based technologies at different biomass processing steps. It will be evaluated the use of CO2 rich off-gases generated from a theoretical Brazilian sugarcane biorefinery producing first and second generation ethanol (being ethanol obtained from sugarcane bagasse employing cellulose hydrolysis in supercritical water method) to grow microalgae. The CO2 and the ethanol produced are proposed to be used, at its sub/supercritical state, in the microalgae high added value compounds recovery and product formulation (encapsulation and/or purification) steps. Also, other biomass resources rich in high added value compounds will be analyzed as raw material instead of microalgae in the biorefinery concept. It will be used computational modeling and simulation in order to develop an energetic self-sufficient and economically viable biorefinery concept. A computational framework will be developed for the systematic computer aided design and evaluation of polygeneration of products from the biomasses. The framework will be constructed to allow a holistic and consistent comparison of the different process and product options. Therefore, instead of considering sub/supercritical fluid processes as an isolated single step, in this research project, they will be evaluated taking an integrated approach to process development. The evaluation of the different proposed concepts will make use of the experimental data and thermodynamic calculation tools developed by the High Pressure Processes Group (HPP Group, University of Valladolid, Spain).
