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 […]
