报告题目: Current research on thermochemical conversion of
Biomass at the CNRS-Nancy
报 告 人: Dr. Anthony DUFOUR, Reactions & Chemical Engineering Laboratory CNRS, Université de Lorraine, Nancy, France
he talk will give an overview of current research developed at CNRS-LRGP Nancy France on the thermochemical conversion of lignocellulosic biomass. The main studied processes are pyrolysis & gasification to produce electricity, biofuels intermediates value-added chemicals such as aromatics.
A multiscale methodology is developed ranging from molecular to bioenergy chain scales.
The studies at molecular & mesoscopic levels give insight into the mechanisms of biomass pyrolysis & are used to design reactors. Conversely, the detailed mass & energy balances of processes point out process units with low energy efficiency &/or high environmental impact & stress the improvement of reactors & the need of more fundamental knowledge.
