Course content
Acquisition of the principles of production of motor biofuels in green biorefineries with regard to solid, gaseous and liquid biofuels and their use for the propulsion of motor units. Use of generator gas production and pyrolysis gas production of rapid pyrolysis to drive gas turbines. Introduction to the methods of production of promising motor fuels. Hydrogen economy, fuel cells. With the simultaneous use of valuable biomass substances (especially phytomass) by chemical-technological cleaning and preparation operations (extraction, distillation, extrusion, acid and enzymatic hydrolysis, pyrolytic processes) and complete processing of waste from these productions in two ways: to pelletized solid biofuels for pellet boilers and anaerobically to biogas and by aerobic methods universal organomineral fertilizers in the composting process. With regard to the bioenergetic use of unprocessable biomass in the form of direct combustion, anaerobic digestion, gasification with the production of generator gas and rapid pyrolysis with the production of pyrolysis gases to drive gas turbines.
