Biomass and waste utilisation

See a video of some of our work on biomass utilisation here:

Biomass utilization has great potential to tackle a number of global grand challenges in energy and the environment. It represents a renewable feedstock which can reduce societal dependence on fossil resources. Biomass has a high energy content which can be converted into fuels or value-added chemicals. Our group investigates, e.g., hydrothermal systems which utilize high temperature water to break down biomass through a series of degradation reactions, exploitation of living organisms and extraction/conversion therein of the chemicals they produce, and effective utilization of bioethanol using fuel cells
