Regenerative Brennstoffe

The lecture is intended to provide a basic understanding of the production of different biofuels by chemical and biotechnological methods and their use in combustion processes.

The ITMC lecture deals with the raw materials available for chemical production, the raw material change, the chemical value chain and the chemical reaction technology as a basis for the conversion of biomass.

The AVT.BioVT lecture deals with the breeding and cultivation of energy crops, biological processes for the digestion of renewable resources (hydrolysis) and fermentation processes. The considered processes are evaluated with respect to their efficiency and practicability.

The lecture of the ITV deals with the specifics of fuel properties, combustion modelling and energy balances of renewable fuels. Furthermore, the application and potentials of regenerative fuels in working machines such as combustion engines and gas turbines and in furnaces are part of the lecture and the potential and application of hydrogen as energy carrier and fuel is considered.


The lecture "Regenerative Fuels" consists of three sub-lectures, held by AVT.BioVT, ITMC and ITV and has a total of 5 ECTS.

The content of the lecture is examined in a joint written exam, which is taken every semester.

Teil III (ITV)

Wintersemester, Thursday, 8.30 - 10.00 am

Vorlesungsunterlagen aller Vorlesungsteile -> RWTHmoodle 

Übungsunterlagen aller Vorlesungsteile -> RWTHmoodle

Der ITV teil soll ein Grundverständnis über die Prozesse der Produktion von Biokraftstoffen geben. Der Einfluss der Biomasse-Struktur auf die resultierende Biokraftstoff-Zusammensetzung, Eigenschaften von Biokraftstoffen, Verbrennung Modellierung und Energiebilanzen werden untersucht. Die Anwendung und Potenziale von erneuerbaren Kraftstoffen in Verbrennungsmotoren, Gasturbinen und Öfen werden ausgewertet. Das Potential und die Anwendung von Wasserstoff werden diskutiert.
