This paper describes an ongoing development of a pilot­scale biorefinery based on three facilities for the production of second generation biofuels. The project aims at assessing the feasibility of different technologies to derive biofuels from non food crops, as well as testing non conventional feedstock for the production of biofuels on a pilot scale. The three facilities are: 1) 200 kWth Gasification facility for the production of syngas equipped both with a traditional wet syngas...
