Welcome to Sustainable Biomass Resources and Technology Pathways for Biogas and Biorefineries (2021)

Description: The course will give an overview of utilizing biomass as a resource for energy, fuel, and biomass derived chemicals and value added products. The course will topics in:  

  • Sustainable biomass 
  • Different types of biomasses available (e.g. woody biomass, forest residues, agricultural residues, energy crops, algae, etc.) 
  • Competitive pretreatment technologies and how do they differ in physical and chemical characteristics 
  • Biomass conversion technologies with focus on biochemical (anaerobic digestion and fermentation processes) conversion processes and methanisation 
  • Biorefinery approach and how processes can turn biomass into fuels and higher value products;   
  • How to obtain advanced biofuels from biomass 
  • How are economic and environmental assessments performed for biorefineries  
  • How will policies shape the future of R&D in the biomass to resources sector

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
