RESTOENE2: Use of agro-forest and oily residues to produce clean transportation fuels

Program of R&D activities between research groups of “Comunidad de Madrid”, co-funded with the European Social Fund, coordinated by ICP-CSIC.

The present research program, which is a logic continuation of the previous RESTOENE Program supported by the CAM, proposes a strategy, with an attractive multidisciplinary approach, the conversion of agrofood residues into clean transport fuels (with a very low impact in carbon footprint). This is an especially interesting alternative in the CAM because the importance of the transport sector and the great volume of agroforestry residues generated in it.

The technologies envisioned for the development of this program include: fractioning of lignocellulosic material, catalytic pyrolysis, enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulose and hemicellulose, sugars fermentation for the production of bioethanol, thermal and catalytic conversion for the production of biooils, bioethanol photoreforming, desoxygenation of Obearing pyrolysis products, use of hydrogen and bioethanol in fuel cells.
