Energy from Biofuels



Winter Term, Thursday: 13:30 - 15:00

Script -> L2P

Contents of the course:

The ITV course shall give a basic understanding of biofuels production processes. The influence of biomass structure on the resulting biofuels composition, characteristics of biofuels, combustion modeling and energy balances are examined. The application and potentials of renewable fuels in IC engines, gas turbines and furnaces are evaluated. The potential and application of hydrogen is discussed.

  • Energy situation, outlook, and introduction to biomass

  • Biofuel conversion processes

  • Gasification, pyrolysis and fuel synthesis

  • BtL plants and applications

  • Direct combustion

  • Life cycle analysis

  • Combustion kinetics of biofuels

  • Biofuel application in IC Engines

  • Biofuel application in gas turbines

  • Potential and application of hydrogen in engines


The lecture "Energy from Biofuels" has a workload of 3 ECTS.
