The BIOTURBINE Project
|BIOTURBINES - Project Brochure|
The main objective of this project is to assess the technical feasibility and market potential of liquid biofuels-burning microtubine systems for power/heating applications.
Opportunities will be identified to use this innovative and efficient technology for distributed power generation, while additionally contributing to the market development of biofuels in Europe.
Microturbines (small gas turbines with a power range from 20 kW to 250 kW) constitute an innovative technical solution for the production of electrical and thermal power.
Thereby, one of the major advantages of the microturbine technology is its potential to operate on a wealth of fuels, such as natural gas, biogas, diesel, gasoline, methane as well as liquid biofuels.
Within this project the application opportunities of a variety of Biofuels for (niche) power and heat production markets in the European Union will be investigated.
