ABSTRACT

Steeper Energy's proprietary Hydrofaction™ pathway for production of tomorrows diesel, jet and marine fuel, comprise conversion of biomass residues through hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) to liquid biocrude. Similar to petroleum crude oil, the oxygenated biocrude is an intermediate that needs further upgrading to meet liquid fuel specifications. On that basis, the thesis focuses on development of an integrated separation, demineralization and upgrading technology platform, so the Hydrofaction™ technology provides the entire path from tree to tank.
