In Renewable Energy the researchers work with processes and components for transforming biomass to heat, electricity and vehicle fuel, and also the recycling of nutrients and energy from society’s waste flows.
- Thermal conversion processes such as pyrolysis, gasification and combustion.
- Biological transformation processes such as digestion and fermentation.
- Domestic waste and waste water systems.
- Microalgae based systems.
- Recycling of nutrients from sludge.

Ongoing research projects
The project BBChina aims to establish a master course fully devoted to the whole bioenergy and biochemicals chain in three partner countries of higher education institutions (HEIs) of China. The master program “From the Field to Bioenergy, Biofuel and Biochemicals” will be a common and advanced interdisciplinary master program where the complex biomass chain is deeply analysed until the output of the biorefinery, to the bioenergy production, to the biofuel utilisation as well as to the integration with other Renewable Energy Sources.
