From the 27th of August until today, 1st of September 2023, the 15th European Congress on Catalysis (EUROPACAT) is ongoing in Prague: a biannual congress dedicated to the studies in the field of catalysis, related industrial areas and beyond. This year, the congress is held in the Prague Congress Centre, Prague, Czech Republic.
Sakis Sakis Dimitriadis from CERTH brought there BioSFerA with a poster and oral presentation on “Triacylglycerides to marine and jet biofuel via hydrotreating”. The work shows the results of the TAGs upgrading via hydroprocessing targeting jet- and bunker-like biofuels achieved during the project. The analysis focuses on the optimisation of the operating parameters, highliting the importance of temperature and pressure and how they could influence the TAGs upgrading. Overall, the choice of the optimum operating parameters is very important and depends first of all from the targeted products (bunker or jet range biofuels).
