Chinese researchers visited Green Fuels

Published: 21 August 2014

A Chinese delegation visited the DEMO-plant Green Fuels as a first step towards a possible research collaboration. They both got to hear about Luleå university of Technology’s research within the Renewable energy field and a tour of the Green Fuels plant.

The researchers come from the Guangzhou Institute of Energy Conversion, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) which is the leading institute of biomass and bioenergy in China..

– In summary, the expectation from CAS is to start the cooperation with us in the area of black liquor gasification, says Xiaoyan Ji, Associate Professor at Luleå University of Technology.

– I find the technic very interesting but we have to modify it for Chinese conditions. For example we don’t have access to waste products from paper mills in the same way as you do here at the Green Fuels plant, says Xio-Li Yin, professor at Guangzhou Insitute of Energy Conversion.

– We do not currently have any collaboration with the Institute of Energy Conversion but it is a very prestigious organization and we would like to, as a first step, exchange ideas and information with them to identify potential areas for collaboration. Black liquor gasification is of course one possibility but we expect there could also be other areas within renewable energy that would be of interest. When we have identified the areas of mutual interest we will try to find ways of working together, says Rikard Gebart, professor at Luleå University of Technology.
