The research focuses on the development of a new thermochemical process to convert biogenic carbon based residues into valuable storable products to contribute present energy, environmental and resource challenges. The Thermo-Catalytic Reforming (TCR®) is an intermediate pyrolysis combined with a unique integrated catalytic reforming step. The aim is to enable a harmonious coexistence of food and energy production with direct contribution to value creation at a domestic level. With these objectives, various biogenic and industrial residues like digestate, sewage sludge, municipal solid waste or sieve residues, and also blends thereof were tested and characterized in a TCR®-plant to produce high quality storable fuels like syngas, oil, and carbonizates. These products can be utilized by proven technologies like gasifiers or combustion engines. The research at Fraunhofer UMSICHT focuses on the integration of the TCR® technology with these technologies to enable a sustainable transition from the fossil fuel age to meet the political targets for 2020 and beyond.
