NEW PHYSICAL PROCESS TO PRODUCE BIOFUELS FROM BIOMASSES AND SYNTHETIC FUELS FROM WASTE AND BYPRODUCTS
- The process has been generated by the Innovation Managers of the Company on the basis of the comprehension of new physical phenomena and the technologies that can be applied to them.
- The process consists in cracking both organic molecules and water, and in favoring the recompositing in typical molecules of raw oil (petroleum). The process is continuous, simple and easily reproducible on any amount of material. The process works at normal ambient pressure and temperature.
- The process is fed with materials which are not competitive with food sources European Directives 2015/1513/CE - ILUC, Indirect Land Use Change.
- Positive balance of CO2 .
- The plants can be also of small or medium production sizes, to be fed with the by-products/waste available in limited areas or in single companies (principle of Sustainable Energy).
- Zero emissions from process.
- Self-energy generation with small share of products.
- The process enhances the circular economy, in the sense of being able to use the liquefaction products in the same places where waste or by-products or biomasses are produced/collected/ processed.
- The products (diesel fuel and gasoline) don’t involve changes to the existing methods of storage, transport and usage.
- The total production costs of biofuels/synthetic fuels are similar and even lower than corresponding fossil products.
- The biofuels/synthetic fuels are free of harmful substances of fossil fuels.
COMPARISON BETWEEN THE ALREADY KNOWN TECHNOLOGIES AND THE NEW PROCESS LIQUE-F
The production of synthetic fuels and biofuels is the focus of research and development all over the world, however, to the current state of the art, there are no simple, economic and efficient technological processes such as LIQUE-F.
