Title (EN) REDUCTIVE BIOMASS LIQUEFACTION
(FR) LIQUÉFACTION RÉDUCTRICE DE BIOMASSE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention provides methods, reactor systems, and catalysts for converting in a continuous process biomass to less complex oxygenated compounds for use in downstream processes to produce biofuels and chemicals. The invention includes methods of converting the components of biomass, such as hemicellulose, cellulose and lignin, to water-soluble materials, including lignocellulosic derivatives, cellulosic derivatives, hemicellulosic derivatives, carbohydrates, starches, polysaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, sugars, sugar alcohols, alditols, polyols, diols, alcohols, ketones, cyclic ethers, esters, carboxylic acids, aldehydes, and mixtures thereof, using hydrogen and a heterogeneous liquefaction catalyst.
(FR)La présente invention concerne des procédés, des systèmes de réacteurs et des catalyseurs pour la conversion en processus continu de biomasse en composés oxygénés moins complexes utilisés dans des procédés en aval destinés à produire des biocarburants et des produits chimiques. L'invention a pour objet des procédés de conversion des composants de biomasse, tels que l'hémicellulose, la cellulose et la lignine, en matériaux hydrosolubles, y compris des dérivés lignocellulosiques, des dérivés cellulosiques, des dérivés hémicellulosiques, des glucides, des amidons, des polysaccharides, des disaccharides, des monosaccharides, des sucres, des alcools de sucre, des alditols, des polyols, des diols, des alcools, des cétones, des éthers cycliques, des esters, des acides carboxyliques, des aldéhydes, et des mélanges de ces produits, en utilisant de l'hydrogène et un catalyseur hétérogène pour la liquéfaction.
