This project will develop the key technological principles for enabling strong (50 – 90%) energy reduction in perhaps the key bottleneck in biomass utilization: water removal and drying. Electric driving forces will be used to draw water from the solids.
Water removal is typically done through evaporation. The technology developed in this project is aimed at high viscosities and semi-solid or solid materials, and does not use evaporation but electric driving forces to draw water from the solids.
Three different approaches are used:
This project is carried out in close collaboration with key industries in the food, biomass and paper and pulp industries.
