The present disclosure relates to thermal conversion of ketoacids, including methods for increasing the molecular weight of ketoacids, the method including the steps of providing in a reactor a feedstock comprising at least one ketoacid. The feedstock is then subjected to one or more C-C-coupling reaction(s) by heating the feedstock to temperature of 200-500 C. in the absence of a catalyst.


The present disclosure relates to catalytic conversion of ketoacids, including methods for increasing the molecular weight of ketoacids, the method including the steps of providing in a reactor a feedstock comprising at least one ketoacid. The feedstock is then subjected to one or more CC-coupling reaction(s) in the presence of hydrogen, and in the presence of a catalyst system having both hydrogenation activity and CC-coupling activity.


A method for treating a gas stream comprising hydrogen and propane, where a combination of membrane separation and elevated pressure distillation is used to separate the hydrogen gas from the propane gas.

Photofuel studies and advances the biocatalytic production of alternative liquid transportation fuels, which require only sunlight, CO2 and water. Microbial cells directly excrete hydrocarbon and long chain alcohol fuel compounds to the medium from which they are separated, without the need to harvest biomass. This significantly improves the costs and energy balances as only a minimum of nutrients is required for self-replication of the biocatalyst, whilst cell harvesting, drying and lipid extraction is omitted. Such minimum-input systems are compatible with operation on degraded or desert land which avoids the pitfalls of most of the currently available biofuel technologies. The products are drop-in fuels that fully or partially replace their fossil counterparts without the need for new infrastructure. To set a benchmark for alternative solar fuels, three research groups will collaborate in the advancement of the biocatalysts from TRL 3. The best biocatalytic system(s) will be up-scaled and operated outdoors in photobioreactors modified for direct fuel separation at a scale of several cubic meters (TRL 4-5). The identification of optimal future fuel blends with a fossil fuel base and Photofuel biofuels as additives, as well as the analysis of performance and emissions in car or truck engines, will be evaluated by the oil- and automotive-industry partners. The entire pathway will be assessed for environmental and economic performance as well as social acceptance of large scale production in rural communities and by the consumer. All results will be combined to a business development plan, which clearly identifies the opportunities but also the challenges prior to an economic fuel production in compliance to the EC Fuel Quality Directive.


Catalytic conversion of ketoacids is disclosed, including methods for increasing the molecular weight of ketoacids. An exemplary method includes providing in a reactor a feedstock having at least one ketoacid. The feedstock is then subjected to one or more CC-coupling reaction(s) in the presence of a catalyst system having a first metal oxide and a second metal oxide.

The present description is related to the field of cultivating algae. It introduces a method of cultivating algae by depleting the culture of an inorganic nutrient and exposing the alga to high intensity light to obtain algal cell mass having enriched lipid content and reduced chlorophyll content.


A composition, including 40-50 wt-% C14 paraffins, based on the total weight of the composition, and 35-45 wt-% C15 paraffins, based on the total weight of the composition, wherein the C14 and C15 paraffins are produced from a biological raw material.


The present invention relates to a method of producing biohydrocarbons comprising the steps of (1) providing an isomeric raw material obtained from a bio-renewable feedstock, preferably by deoxygenation, hydrodeoxygenation, hydrotreatment or hydrocracking, and containing at least 65wt.% iso-paraffins, and (2) thermally cracking the isomeric raw material to produce biohydrocarbons at a temperature (coil outlet temperature) of at most 825C.The biohydrocarbons can further be polymerized to obtain bio-polymers such as polyolefins, polypropylene, polyethylene or copolymers such as polyethylene terephthalate.The invention further relates to biohydrocarbons obtainable by the method.
