ETIP Bioenergy Working Group 2 "Conversion” Webinar - Pyrolysis Oil

The European Technology and Innovation Platform Bioenergy is an industry-led stakeholder platform engaged in the development of sustainable bioenergy and competitive biofuel technologies. One major task of ETIP Bioenergy is to address the technical and economic barriers to the further development and accelerated commercial deployment of bioenergy technologies for the widespread sustainable exploitation of biomass resources.

A series of webinars is being held with the purpose of providing information from industry and academia and to allow the audience to pose their questions to the experts.

The first webinar will be held on 25 May 2020, 14:00 – 15:30 CEST on the topic of PYROLYSIS OIL.

Speakers are Tony Bridgwater, Professor of Chemical Engineering at Aston University in Birmingham, specialising in thermal conversion of biomass for production of fuels and chemicals, and Gerhard Muggen, managing director at BTG-BTL, and as such responsible for the overall business and the commercialisation of the pyrolysis technology. There will be time for questions from the audience after each of the presentations. Dina Bacovsky, Chair of WG 2, will moderate the webinar.Tony Bridgwater will provide a presentation on the basics of pyrolysis technologies such as how the process works, properties of the product, and limitations of the process. Gerhard Muggen will explain the BTG-BTL technology, possible applications for the resulting pyrolysis oil, and the progress in the industrialisation of the technology.
