Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2011028783A2] A process is disclosed for converting cellulose to liquid fuels. In the process the cellulose is dissolved in an Ionic Liquid medium. The conversion process may comprise pyrolysis, thermal cracking, hydrocracking, catalytic cracking, hydrotreatment, or a combination thereof. The dissolved cellulose is preferably hydrolyzed, prior to the conversion reaction. The Ionic Liquid medium preferably is an inorganic molten salt hydrate.
