6ieme RB: Bio-refinement of lignocellulosic materials




by Christophe » 23/09/09, 16:24

I think I'm going to participate in this day (I participated in the 4ieme on fast growing plants in 2007: 4ème Rencontres de la Biomasse What resources for the biofuels of tomorrow? - 2007).

This will be interesting in the context of Laigret project! I will go on behalf of the association.

Hereby, the asbl ValBiom is pleased to invite you to the 6th Biomass Meetings entitled "Biorefining of lignocellulosic materials", which will take place on October 21, 2009 in Gembloux, Belgium.

We wish to invite to this event all those who near or far participate in development or are interested in biorefining.

You will find the detailed program as well as the modalities of inscription in attachment or on our Internet site www.valbiom.be (links below). Your confirmation of participation must be received by Monday, October 12 2009. For practical information, please contact Valérie Thiels (v.thiels@cra.wallonie.be, + 32 (0) 81 627 142).

Hoping to see you many on this day,

I beg you to believe, ladies and gentlemen, in the assurance of my highest consideration.

If it's as good as the 4ieme day, a lot of info should be available in digital form.

Ay, I'm coming back from Gembloux! Waw, needed a level in (very) high biochemistry to follow everything! I did not understand 1 conference on 2 ... There were fewer people than 2007 day on fast growing plants (and because it was much more specific).

To summarize: 2nd generation biofuels (conversion of cellulose and lignin into ethanol) are, except "surprise", (very) far from being developed ...

I think they will not be competitive (with respect to gasoline) before 20 or 30 years. Opinions diverged today. For simplicity: the 2ieme generations will be on the horizon 2015 more expensive to produce (50 to 60 cents / L output biorafinery) than the 1ere generation which currently are already unprofitable without tax exemption ...

Other conferences concerning biomaterials based on lignin and cellulose to replace products of petroleum origin (solvent, polymer binder, bitumen, etc.) but here too high cost but some "good surprises".

I think cellulosic processing for bio-materials will come before the market as energy use!

As soon as the conferences are ready, I balance them ...

it gives us time to make Laigret :D

Uh yes we can say that ...

When you see their R&D budget .... if we had a 1/10 of it for Laigret, it would be a hit !! What am I saying: 1% would be enough !!! : Cheesy:

Information related to biofuels of 2 ieme generation and which shows the complexity of the biochemical operations necessary:

Here are the documents of some of the conferences of the day in .pdf, attention as said above it is of the "high level" and I put only the most accessible (the others, of level chemistry biology university, are available on this page :

1) Second Generation Cellulosic Bioethanol: Limiting Factors and Difficulties (contains a lot of data on landfill waste and wood). It was said that at the end of 2 years, there was almost no more than cellulose in all waste dump ...

2) The future of the biorefinery, a comparison between an oil refinery and a biorefinery

3) Biorefineries in Europe 25 : energy, non food agriculture and biofuels in the Europe of 25, key figures.

4) Futurol project by Procethol 2G: presentation of a bioethanol refinery of 2ieme generation

Maloche is the one with the numbers at 6 zeros :)

5) Vapocracking and steam explosion, ligno-cellulosic application

6) Second generation lignins and green chemistry

And the last 2 classified in biomass because it is more about green chemistry than biofuels:

7) Technose program: green chemistry and new molecules of plant origin

8) Biohub and biorefinery: new products and processes of green chemistry by Roquette
