The pretreatment process is a key technology for processing of plant based raw material by overcoming the biomass recalcitrance and/or disintegrating the biomass structure into its main components, making them available for downstream processing i.e. enzymatic hydrolysis and fermentation to biofuels or chemicals. Achieving a uniform and cost efficient pretreatment has especially proven a challenge when moving from lab scale to industrial scale.

BioGasol has specialized in continuous pretreatment equipment for lignocellulose utilization. This poster will present the technical realization of a continuous biomass pretreatment system,techno-economic evaluation and scale up from pilot to commercial scale.

This presentation will show results of the development and building of a commercial scale continuous pretreatment system.
