The bioCRACK process can convert as much as 18 percent of biomass into fuel intermediates for diesel production. This process was operated in pilot scale over two years. Beside fuel intermediates, pyrolysis oil is formed in the bioCRACK process. In the second technology development step pyrolysis oil was upgraded by continuous hydrodeoxygenation in lab scale. Results show a carbon yield from pyrolysis oil of 50 percent. The boiling range of upgraded pyrolysis oil is between diesel and gasoline.
