General Description of the Research Project This project aims to develop the technology to produce high-quality bio-fuels and chemicals from agricultural resources and residual wastes which are abundant in Thailand, an agriculture country. The target is gasification and catalytic chemical conversion of biomass resources such as agricultural non-edible biomass resources and agricultural waste such as rice straw. Highly efficient production of syngas (mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen) which is suitable for catalytic conversion, high-performance catalyst to produce a various high-quality bio-fuels with high selectivity and high yield, bio-fuel manufacturing, quality evaluation, and field test will be demonstrated. In addition, LCA (life cycle assessment) analysis and social system analysis will be studied for social implementation. Human resource development and outreach will be highly considered.
