Excerpt

BASF and the energy company Eni are jointly developing a new technology to produce biopropanol from glycerol, which is a by-product of industrial biodiesel production. The sugar alcohol will be converted into propanol using a catalytic hydrotreating process. The new approach involves subjecting a catalyst to a high-pressure hydrogenation reaction to produce biopropanol with a high yield and purity while minimizing byproducts, according to BASF. Biopropanol offers the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 65 to 75 % compared to fossil fuels and can be blended with gasoline as a drop-in biofuel, the company claims. Because of its better physicochemical properties compared to bioethanol and its very high octane number, biopropanol is a valuable ingredient for the production of premium gasoline.
