TN Agricultural Experiment Station (TAES) Small Scale Demonstration Plant

TN Agricultural Experiment Station (TAES) is developing a small scale demonstration plant to facilitate research and development (R&D) in new process methods and will integrate feedstocks and conversion methods. Two primary units include a solvent fractionation reactor (to isolate pure polymer components from lignocellulosic material) and a fluidized bed pyrolysis reactor to produce bio-oils. Facility also will include twin screw extruder for further modification of residual lignin and a small bioreactor to produce ethanol from carbohydrate product stream. Effort also will include the production of relatively low volume high value chemical coproducts.
