AIM OF THE RESEARCH

  • Development of novel, chemical (catalytic) reaction pathways for the production of butanol and higher bioalcohols.

MAIN FIELDS OF THE RESEARCH

  • Evaluation of former and novel procedures for chemical production of butanol
    • Chemical degradation of biomass to obtain intermediate product(s)
    • Chemical steps to transform the intermediate product(s) to end product(s)
  • Development and optimization of catalytic reactions for the production of butanoland higher alcohols
    • Catalyst synthesis and characterization
    • Alcohol(s) synthesis over heterogeneous catalyzed reactions
  • Sustainability analysis and evaluation of atom economy of the new processes
  • The research will be carried out at the Oulu University (KokkolaUniversityConsortium Chydenius)
    • supervised by prof. Ulla Lassi
    • A Joint Degree with prof. J-M Leveque, Universitede Savoie, France
