Cellulosic Biofuels

Hydrogenation of Biofuel Intermediates

New biochemical and thermochemical routes for the production of cellulosic ethanol, diesel, and other advanced biofuels may produce chemical intermediates (vegetable oil, animal fats, ethers, pyrolysis oil, algae oil, etc.) that must be hydrogenated to yield the desired end product. Air Products is the world’s largest producer of hydrogen and has been a leading global supplier to the crude oil refining and bio-refining industry for more than 70 years. We can help you select the best hydrogen supply mode for your hydrogenation process based on your demand, geography, and usage pattern.

Hydrogen

In the production of fossil fuel substitutes from cellulosic feedstocks, many biofuel intermediates of the production processes need to be hydrogenated to produce a saturated final product. As the world's largest hydrogen supplier, we can supply volumes up to 130,000 Nm3/hr (120 million scfd).
