1. Planned Activities:

This SunGrant project consists of five interrelated research topics: Biomass Fractionation, Biomass Gasification, Supercritical Phase Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis, Catalyst Characterization, as well as Process and Product Design, Integration and Optimization. Each of these research topics have specific tasks that were outlined in the project description. In the previous report (submitted in April 2011), the plans for the next quarter were listed as:

A. Biomass Fractionation:

I. Fractionation Optimization Studies

II. Production Runs under Optimized Conditions

III. Lignin Precipitation and Purification

B. Biomass Gasification:

I. Characterize Woody Biomass Lignin from Fractionation Studies

II. Sustained Optimized Production (Fractionated Feedstock)

C. Supercritical Phase Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis:

I. Incorporate Product Upgrading Catalysts in SCF-FTS Reactor

II. Sustained Fuels Production from Simulated Syngas

III. Sustained Runs on Biomass Derived Syngas from Gasification Studies

D. Catalyst Characterization:

I. Utilize Advanced Analytical Techniques for Catalyst Characterization E. Process and Product Design, Integration and Optimization:

I. Development of Process Simulation Models

II. Process Integration and Optimization of Fuels Production Systems

III. Evaluation of Economic and Environmental Performance Metrics IV. Life Cycle Analysis of Products and Production Routes
