Bio-oil Upgrading Using Nanomaterials (CNTs). Step 1- Characterisation of Biomass-based Pyrolysis Product

A. Artigues, N. Puy, E. Fábregas & J. Bartrolí
This study is part of a larger project whose goal is to develop a novel bio­oil upgrading process based on catalytic activity of (bio)nanomaterials (modified carbon nanotubes, CNTs) to obtain an upgraded bio­oil which is meant to be used as second­generation biofuel in the transportation sector, although it can also be used to produce heat and power and as a chemical platform in a future biorefinery scenario. The first step of that project, which results...
