Hydroprocessing Expert

What does a hydroprocessing expert or hydroprocessing consultant do?  A hydroprocessing experts can design process using hydrogen to upgrade biofuels and renewable chemicals.   Hydroprocessing is used to remove oxygen, sulfur, and nitrogen from biomass-derived feeds and renewables to produce drop-in feeds.  A consultant can aid in the selection of appropriate catalysts, predict yields and hydrogen […]

Technology Evaluation Expert

What does a biochemical, biofuels or biomass technology evaluator do?  A technology evaluator provides an independent opinion about a new technology or application based on years of technical and commercial experience.   It is useful for understanding if the technology is worth commercialization at this stage and the potential the value of intellectual property. What is […]

Process Design

The process designer’s task is to lay out the process unit operations in a Block Flow Process Diagram (BFPD), in which the process unit operations are connected by the continuous process stream flows.  A process is the transformation of raw materials, into one or more products of commercial value. The process development aims for commercial […]

Biomass Gasification Expert

What does a biomass gasification expert or gasification consultant do?  Gasification is the process of turning some variety of feedstocks into higher value products. This is most often done by converting a material containing carbon (like coal, biomass, waste, petroleum coke, etc.) —into a syngas. This syngas is then burned to produce electricity, or it […]

Advanced Biofuels Expert

What does an advanced biofuels expert or consultant do?  When we speak of “advanced biofuels”, we are referring to second generation biofuels – as opposed to first generation biofuels.  First generation biofuels are generally made from food crops like virgin vegetable oils (soybean oil, canola oil, etc.) or sugar cane. Although there are exceptions, advanced […]

Biofuels Consultant

What does a biofuels expert or biofuels consultant do?  First, let’s define biofuels.  Biofuels refers to any fuel that is produced through a mainstream biological processes like agriculture as opposed to fuels which are produced through a geological processes like coal or petroleum.  Biofuels are normally derived directly from plants, or indirectly from agricultural, commercial, […]

What Does A Pilot Plant Expert Do?

Pilot plant experts work closely with research scientists to scale chemical and biological processes. They are familiar with the (typ.) four scales associated with process development – lab, pilot, demonstration, production – and the benefits and challenges associated with each. They need a strong grasp of chemical, mechanical, electrical, instrumentation and control engineering, as well […]

What is an Emerging Biofuel?

Within biofuels, examples of emerging technologies are: torrefaction to produce biocoal slow pyrolysis to produce biochar fast pyrolysis to produce pyrolysis oil and biochar hydrothermal carbonization to produce hydrochar hydrothermal liquefaction to produce biocrude stream treated to produce black pellets gasification to produce producer gas and/or syngas. With such early-stage ventures, an important early task […]

Biodiesel Expert

What does a biodiesel expert or biodiesel consultant do?  Biodiesel refers to a vegetable oil- or animal fat-based diesel fuel consisting of long-chain alkyl (methyl, ethyl, or propyl) esters. Biodiesel is typically made by chemically reacting lipids (e.g., vegetable oil, soybean oil, animal fat (tallow) with an alcohol producing fatty acid esters. Biodiesel is meant to be used in standard diesel engines and is thus distinct from the vegetable […]
