BioTfueL project is part of a global energy transition movement. It was launched in 2010 by a consortium of six partners: TOTAL, IFP ENERGIES NOUVELLES, THYSSENKRUPP INDUSTRIAL SOLUTIONS, AVRIL, CEA, AXENS.

What is BioTfueL?
BioTfueL aims to develop a thermochemical conversion of biomass into second generation biodiesel and biokerosene. These fuels have a particularly favorable environmental impact (more than 90% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional fuel).

To this end, the Bionext consortium began the construction of 2 experimental plants in North of France. From 2017, these facilities will deliver essential R&D data for a process extrapolation to a more industrial scale.

What is the involvement of AP2E in BioTfueL?
For this project, AP2E was selected to supply with 3 ATEX gas analysis systems. These on-line instruments will monitor several compounds present in the gas flows generated by the gasification platform (multiple purposes: process, R&D, safety…).

Advantages conferred by AP2E patented technologies were key arguments in obtaining the contract: multi-gas analysis possibility, high sensitivity and high selectivity, fast response time and low maintenance costs.

Once again, this success confirms AP2E as a major player in the world of gas analysis solution providers in Europe for process and safety applications. Click here to learn more about ProCeas® Biogas & Syngas analyzer


SAFIRE – ProCeas® measurements in upper atmosphere

Based in Toulouse, SAFIRE is a unique investigation project for environmental research, as well as aeronautic developments.

It operates 3 instrumented airplanes for inflight measurements in upper atmosphere (40.000 feet). AP2E supplied with a ProCeas® CO analyzer to be installed onboard the airplanes. ProCeas® was selected for its strong performances in inflight conditions.

Indeed, ProCeas® is not impacted by pressure variations due to its patented low-pressure sampling (LPS). The measurement cell is thermo-regulated and is not affected by sample temperature fluctuations. Click here to learn more about ProCeas® CO analyzer
