Techlology Brief The bioliq process, developed at the Karlsruhe Institut für Technologie (KIT) aims at the production of synthetic fuels and chemicals from biomass. The bioliq technology is based on a two step process with decentral pyrolysis for the production of transportable slurry from biomass (e.g. straw) and central slurry gasification and BtL production. At KIT Karlsruhe a pilot pl ant with 2 MW fast pyrolysis and biosyn- crude production and 5 MWth high pressure entrained flow gasifier operated up to 8 MPa (both in cooperation with Lurgi GmbH, Frankfurt), as well as the hot gas clean-ing (MUT Advanced Heating GmbH, Jena), dimethylether and final gasoline synthesis (Chemieanlagenbau Chemnitz GmbH) are in operation.

Additional Information Stage 1 (2 MW fast pyrolysis) completed, stage 2 (5 MW high pressure entrained flow gasification) under construction, Stage 3 (gas cleaning and methanol synthesis) and Stage 4 (Methanol to Fuel) in design.
