Advanced Technologies and Systems for Efficient Energy Conversion with Low Environmental Impact (SMARTE)

National and international projects and collaborations (MiSE project “Bioenergy Efficient”, European project R2H, ODE project with the Polytechnic of Nantes, FLEX-ICE-GE project with NASA), concerned: production and characterization of biofuels; use of biogas and syngas in MGT; small generation / cogeneration systems; hybrid energy grids. In particular, the combustion and the formulation of pyrolysis oils from algae and bioslurry formed with the char produced by pyrolysis has been studied; biodiesel by enzymatic esterification; emulsions with microchannel systems
