Associated research grant:18/14938-4 - Waste2energy: integration of supercritical technologies and anaerobic digestion through an automated system for the production of biofuel precursors, AP.JP2
Associated scholarship(s):21/12762-9 - Subcritical water pretreatment of brewer's spent grains for bio-based products manufacturing in a biorefinery concept, BE.EP.DD


Biomass conversion and waste reuse technologies for the production of new energy-using products are emerging, among them sub-critical technology that uses water as a solvent in a clean and sustainable process. In order to improve this technology, it is proposed to assemble an experimental unit composed of series reactors and parallel hydrolysis in subcritical water. This research and technological innovation project is part of the rational use of renewable energy through biomass. The innovation of this project is the coupling of an inline sugar detector to quantify the fermentable sugars obtained after hydrolysis in high quality final subcritical water. The raw materials will be subjected to hydrolysis with water under subcritical conditions to obtain sufficient hydrolyzate for the tests to continue production of 2G ethanol and or anaerobic digestion and biogas production. Glucose and ethanol, furfural and HMF concentrations will be quantified using HPLC equipment. (AU)
