‘Blue Bird - Concomitant generation of energy and chemicals from biomass waste streams’ (5.4111) is a 2-year TKI innovation project financed by RVO (reference TEBE 115001) in which a number of technologies have been developed for the recovery of valuable compounds (BTX, ethylene) from gasification product gas in co-production schemes. The implementation of co-production allows the reduction of the production cost of bio-SNG by harvesting valuable compounds. Moreover, the production cost can be further reduced if low-cost biomass residues are used as feedstock (as the humins considered in this project). The co-production technologies studied include liquid absorption for bio-BTX harvesting, adsorption for the capture of bio-ethylene, and catalytic conversion of ethylene to aromatics (reactive separation). Moreover, the thermochemical valorization of humins (a by-product from Avantium’s YXY biorefinery process for sugar conversion into chemicals) has also been assessed in this project. The research and development work was complemented with a market analysis and environmental impact assessment (LCA). This report summarizes the main achievements of the project.
