Biomass fuel production

From the simple oil press up to the most modern wood gasification to produce by the Fischer Tropsch method something like Diesel from wood.

Not at all like diesel looks the product of the lab arrangement. Then in the lab it is refined to diesel. 1 liter of diesel-like fuel from 10 kg of wood will possibly be it.

Immediately beside wood power plant in Güssing is a research equipment for the possibility to generate a fuel similar to diesel of wood.

Not only for people, also healthier for the diesel : cold-pressed oil. By temperatures more than 60 degrees would reach phosphorus and wax in the oil which damage a diesel.

Independence of the oil price and self-sufficiency were the purposes for the construction this vegetable oil refinery. Who expects now high-complex technology like with an oil refinery

With which will we prepare our fields when the crude oil comes to an end? Wolfgang Löser has already thought about it years ago and presents his solution with sunflowers.

With the product gas from the wood gasification a diesel similar fuel is produced here in the research laboratory.


Wood to the motoring Wood to the motoring
In emergency times like the oil shortage in the 2nd world war already once practiced: Motoring with wood. With modern technology it also goes without carried along wooden stove in the car.

After in the oil press the press cake was produced the vegetable oil stores several weeks in an tank. After some weeks are 3 layers of different products.

With the cold press the yield is about 10% less than with hot-pressed oil. These 10% of oil remain in the press cake, an especially high-quality animal feed.

A farmer needs about 10% of his cultivation surface in order to have enough fuel for his tractor. A ha brings about 1000 liters sunflower oil per year in central Europe.
