Biomass pretreatment and fractionation reactors
Lab-scale batch organosolv reactor
6 x 2.5 L (total volume) metallic (stainless steel) cylinders that allow treatment at temperatures up to 200 oC. Air-heated reactor.
Semi-pilot batch organosolv reactor
50 L (net filling capacity) stirred stainless steel reactor, capable of operating up to 300oC (currently available steam for heating limits to 230 oC) and design pressure is 50 bar (suggested upper limit is 40-43 bar). 3 HP ATEX Zone I IIA/IIB motor with helixane stirrer (10-100 rpm). CE-PED 2014/68/EU certified.
Semi-continuous semi-pilot organosolv reactor
Capable of treated up to 5kg biomass per run. Heating by steam in double-wall jackets (30 bar steam – 230 oC). Operates up to 30 bar internal pressure and is certified to operate with solvents. Certified according to PED 2014/68/EU, Fluid groups I and II.
