By means of the bioliq® process, fully synthetic diesel or motor fuel can be produced from straw and other agricultural and forestry residues.
The process comprises four stages: In the first stage, the dry residual biomass is subjected to decentralized flash pyrolysis to form a substance of high energy density similar to crude oil. This substance, the so-called biosyncrude, can be transported over long distances in an economically efficient way and is subjected to further central processing. The high-pressure entrained flow gasifier converts the biosyncrude into a tar-free synthesis gas at temperatures above 1200°C and pressures of up to 80 bar. This synthesis gas is mainly composed of carbon monoxide and hydrogen. By means of downstream hot gas cleaning, impurities, such as particulate matter, chlorine, sulfur, and nitrogen compounds, are separated from the syngas. In the synthesis stage, this synthetic gas is converted into customized fuels or basic chemical products.
