The Bionic Group specializes in transformation technologies for biomass and other carbonaceous feedstock into liquid and solid fuels. This includes feedstock like municipal solid waste (MSW), plastic waste, scrap tires, energy crops and organic waste materials.
Bionic’s fuel technologies are all centered around the commercial application of advanced microwave technology to alternative fuel production processes. Microwaves are complemented by the latest in catalyst development available today.

The Bionic proprietary microwave technology "microfuel" works at temperatures below 350 ° C. The resulting light oils can be further upgraded into standard diesel and SPK jetfuel. In addition a valuable dry char is produced. It has excellent high-calorific properties and can be used for various applications from solid fuel to a carbon sequestering soil amendment. A related liquefaction technology converting coal, such as lignite or gasification char residues to liquid fuels is also under development.
Typical mf plants have a capacity per hour of up to 4 tons of dry biomass or 2-4 tons of MSW plastic content. They convert the feedstock into approximately one-two tons of liquid fuel per hour. Processing of high calorific plastic & tyre waste results in significantly higher liquid yields compared to biomass. Add-on microfuel technology allows processing of oil sludge from refinery residues and the decontamination of polluted soil in a contained system. The smallest decontamination units are installed in flip-containers for mobile use.
The Bionic technology has been developed over many years and various feedstocks have been tested in the laboratory. Compared to other depolymerisation systems on the market microfuel has numerous advantages resulting in higher outputs, very low catalyst consumption (<0,5%) and significantly better oil quality than all common pyrolysis systems. Specially designed extended lifetime microwaves, specifically for microfuel developed HF field modulation components and a fast "in-the-pellet" reaction transforming hydrocarbons in a single step into usable fuels, make all the difference. All modules, mostly made from stainless steel, comply with international production standards such as DIN/ASTM/ATEX and are produced by selected certified manufacturers for extended lifetime.
Microfuel systems are now available in various sizes, ranging from 1,000 ltr. oil output per hour up to clustered systems of up to 20,000 liters/hour or more.
Around the microfuel system several cutting edge technologies have been developed by Bionic R&D:
redundant vacuum systems to achieve optimal vacuum levels
desulfurization systems, using ionic salts, for upgrading to ultral-low-sulphur fuel
distillation systems for separation of phenols and organic acids from biocrude
effective microwave driven, biomass fed hydrogen generators
microwave driven hydrotreaters for oil stabilization
microwave driven liquefaction reactors for lignite char or coal to fuel processing
adaptation of solid state microwaves are in development for significantly longer lifetime and less maintenance
