Gasoline from Wood


Gasoline from Wood via Integrated Gasification, Synthesis, and Methanol-to Gasoline Technologies 2011, NREL, Steven D. Phillips, Joan K. Tarud, Mary J. Biddy,and Abhijit Dutta. This report is a future look at the potential of the described biomass-to-gasoline process, based on calculations for a mature plant (also called the nth plant) and 2012 technology targets as established in the Multi-Year Technical Plan of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of the Biomass Program.

Direct Production of Gasoline and Diesel from Biomass using Integrated  Hydropyrolysis and Hydroconversion, Department of Energy, Terry Marker, Larry Felix, Dr Martin Linck, Michael Roberts.

Production of Gasoline and Diesel from Biomass via Fast Pyrolysis, Hydrotreating and Hydrocracking: A Design Case, Department of Energy DOE 2009. The purpose of this design case study is to evaluate a processing pathway for converting biomass into infrastructure-compatible hydrocarbon biofuels.  This design case investigates production of fast pyrolysis oil from biomass and the upgrading of that bio-oil as a means for generating infrastructure-ready renewable gasoline and diesel fuels.

Life Cycle Assessment of Gasoline and Diesel Produced via Fast Pyrolysis and Hydroprocessing, 2011 NREL, David D. Hsu. In this work, an LCA of the production of gasoline and diesel from forest residues via fast
pyrolysis and hydroprocessing, from production of the feedstock to end use of the fuel in a vehicle, is performed.

Biomass to Gasoline and Diesel Using Integrated Hydropyrolysis and Hydroconversion 2012, DOE, United States. Cellulosic and woody biomass can be directly converted to hydrocarbon gasoline and diesel blending components through the use of integrated hydropyrolysis plus hydroconversion (IH2). The gasoline and diesel blending components are fully compatible with petroleum based gasoline and diesel, contain less than 1% oxygen and have less than 1 total acid number (TAN). The IH2 gasoline is high quality.
