I-CORE Research:

Thermal Conversion of Biomass into H2 and CO2

Renewable Fuels Production

The Blechner group will pursue conversion of CO2 and H2 into a range of liquid fuels by direct hydrogenation of CO2 to fuels or to materials such as methanol (that can be converted to gasoline by the MTG process), and develop novel catalytic processes for deoxygenation, isomerization and mild cracking of heavy paraffins from non-food oils to produce high-quality “drop-in” green diesel and jet fuel with minimum hydrogen consumption.

Research Group:

Prof. Miron V. Landau, Roxana Vidruk, Moshe Ravaev, Lior Frimat, Haim Israel





Supported by the I-CORE Program of the Planning and Budgeting Committee and The Israel Science Foundation
