  • Bio4Energy Researchers' Meeting: New Activities, Leaders

    Have you ever wondered what artificial intelligence is and how it can be used in research and development on bio-based technologies? Or what the cost would be replacing the use of fossil fuel-based petrol and diesel with renewable methanol as a transport fuel in Sweden? Bio4Energy is publishing some clues below, contained in presentations given at the most recent Bio4Energy Researchers’ Meeting, which is a biannual event where researchers, students and technicians who are members of the research environment meet and trade notes on their latest progress. This autumn, they met 15 November for a seminar at Skellefteå, Sweden.

  • Bio4Energy Results on Large-scale Hydrogen Production Part of IVA 'Progress in Research & Technology 2017' Speech - Video

    In August, Bio4Energy researchers and partners unveiled a scheme that could enable large-scale production of hydrogen based on renewable electricity. This month, the director of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA), Björn O. Nilsson, acknowledged it his annual speech Progress in Research and Technology 2017.

    He did so approximately 25.15 minutes into the speech. We publish it here, with permission. Bio4Energy wants to thank Pär Rönnberg, writer at IVA, for coordinating contacts with us.

  • Bio4Energy Set to Continue as Strategic Research Environment

    Bio4energy cmykThe research environment Bio4Energy has been granted a continuation of it activities at least until the end of 2020.

    This has been confirmed with the unfolding of events this week, starting with the release of the Swedish government's proposal for research and innovation work by the academy and research institutes for the years 2017-2020, and confirmation by the vice chancellor's advisor on infrastructure issues at Umeå University, This email address is being protected from spambots.

    "In line with the government directives, the strategic research areas hosted by Umeå University will continue. However, this is on the condition that you continue having a set aside, strategic funds, so that we will be able to adjust our activities in accordance with any new directives that the government may specify" in its forthcoming Letter of Regulation, said Sommarin, who is also chair of the Bio4Energy Board, commenting on the research bill.

  • Bio4Energy Thermochemical Conversion Technologies

    thermochemica_600lResearchers on the Bio4Energy platform for Thermochemical Conversion Technologies develop thermal technologies based on gasification and combustion of forest-sourced biomass or organic waste. Photo used with permission.Researchers on the platform Bio4Energy Thermochemical Conversion Technologies have set out to develop a complete set of experimentally validated sub-models that can be combined in different ways to predict all technologically important processes for thermal conversion of biomass, including reactions with containment materials. On the side of technology development, gasification, combustion and pyrolysis are the cheif methods studied.
