  • Patent number: 10876049
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for producing mixtures of hydrocarbons and aromatic compounds for subsequent use as fuel components (preferably in the C5-C16 range) by catalytic conversion of the oxygenated compounds contained in aqueous fractions derived from primary biomass treatments, which can comprise at least the following steps: (i) bringing the aqueous mixture containing the oxygenated compounds derived from biomass in contact with a catalyst comprising at least W and/or Nb, and combinations of Nb and W with other elements, (ii) reacting the mixture with the catalyst in a catalytic reactor at temperatures between 50° C. and 450° C. and under pressures of 1 to 120 bar; and (iii) recovering the products obtained by a liquid/liquid separation process of the aqueous and organic phases.
    Type: Grant
