This report is about the current progress on the proposed topic which is "Technology Assessment of Upgrading Bio-oil". The objectives of this project are to study on the methods availableof upgrading the bio-oil in terms of the advantages and disadvantages of each method. The methods that have been identified to upgrade bio-oil are hydrotreatment, catalytic cracking, emulfication and steam reforming. For each of the technology, estimated cost analysis and iCON simulation will be done. The methodology for this project is identifying technology available for upgrading bio-oil, extensive research will be done by analyzing relevant journals and obtaining information from applicable books, comparing results and findings from journals, obtaining estimated cost analysis for each technology and modeling by using iCON process simulation. In term of material costs, the most feasible technology would be emulsification. However, emulsification did not change the physical properties of the upgraded bio-oil. Thus, emulsification can still caused corrosiveness to the equipment that uses the fuel. For the time being, iCON simulation can only be done for steam reforming. From the simulation, the optimum operating condition for steam reforming is 5 bar for operating pressure, operating temperature of 800 °C and steam to carbon ratio(S/C)of5. u
