Johanna Kihlman (Inventor), Irene Coronado (Inventor)

Research output: PatentPatent


The invention relates toa method and apparatus for treating a side water fraction (1) which comprises at least one undesired compound and which is formed in a thermochemical treatment of biomass.The side water fraction (1) comprising at least one undesired organic compound is treated by means of a reforming treatment (2) in order to convert the organic compound into at least hydrogen (5) and optionally also other compounds (6) selected from the group comprising organic com- pounds, hydrocarbons, carbondioxide, carbonmonoxide and their combinations. The reforming treatment (2) is catalyzed by Ni/NiAl2O4 catalyst (3).Further, the in- vention relates to the use of the method.
