CAT2BIOL – Towards the selective production of 2nd generation bio-alcohols in zero-waste biorefineries

Industrial catalytic processes exist to convert (bio)-synthesis gas into methanol or paraffin products. However, at present, there is no process yet to produce selectively higher alcohols, even though these would be preferred products, due to their advantageous features both as liquid energy carriers as well as platform chemicals. The aim of the project is to develop solid catalysts for this process.
