The production and conversion of chemical energy carriers is often carried out by catalytic processes. In the case of renewables, this can be applied in particular to the biomass gasification route with its subsequent catalytic synthesis processes, e.g. SNG synthesis.
The numerous process requirements depend on both the raw materials and the desired products. Therefore, in many cases, new process concepts, e. g. dynamically operable catalytic reaction units with a high level of process integration, have to be developed.
R&D-work at EBI-ceb focusses primarily on the appropriate concepts and the fundamental theoretical and experimental issues that arise concerning process layout and design.
