Project Overview

Go Green! For A Better Tomorrow

This Idea is all about creating a biorefinery which makes use of the various bio-waste such as forest wastes, Food remains , and Crop residues and then process them into products which are beneficial to the world. Some of the products expected include Biofuels, Industrial solvents such as Xylose and 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural , Glucose which is widely used in the Food-producing industries and even Lignin, which is a widely used polymer. The main objective here is to reduce the level of green house gas emission which is caused by the widely used fossil fuels today, Thus, this project will then to produce biofuels which will serve as an alternative to fossil fuels. Chemically, biofuels do not cause the emission of green house gases. The approach is to start thus biorefinery with simple chemical processes such as Hydrolysis, Pyrolysis and Gasification which are hundred times more easier than the process involved in fossil fuel production.
