Bio2oil IVS is involved in several projects for the scale up of the HTL technology and is open to new collaborations...
Already in the 1920s, the concept of using hot water and alkali catalysts to produce oil out of biomass was proposed. This later served as the foundation of what is today called hydrothermal liquefaction or HTL. Hydrothermal liquefaction gained interest among researchers in the 1970s during the oil embargo, and […]

Carbon balance for use in high particulate matter primary filtration of wastewater feed
The WWT industry is a sector that has benefited from incremental innovation over decades but has not seen any radical change. Bio2oil aims to revolutionize wastewater treatment in order improve resource efficiency in the circular economy, or in other terms create value out of wastewater. Our approach includes the primary […]
