Techno-economic Assessment of Biomass Pre-processing project – deadline 29 August 2014

The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) is launching a new project in its Bioenergy programme and is seeking partners to deliver it. The Techno-economic Assessment of Biomass Pre-processing project will provide an assessment of the economic and performance trade-offs associated with pre-processing options, and the value they may provide compared with more conventional technology improvement approaches. 

The project will assess and compare two different bioenergy system approaches – one without any significant pre-processing steps between feedstock production and energy conversion process and one incorporating intermediate pre-processing activities.  These steps may include processes to densify biomass to aid transportation and storage; processes to improve biomass handling; and/or processes to modify the chemical composition of the raw biomass feedstocks.
