RP1.10-07 Biomass to future fuels – A techno-economic assessment
This project will produce a techno-economic assessment for the co-gasification of agricultural residues and construction wastes in a solar hybridized dual fluidized bed gasifier for H2 and/or H2 carriers and Fischer-Tropsch liquids.
Compared with the use of dedicated crops, the use of residues as feedstock result in lower net impacts and emissions. The use of non-edible feedstock also avoids complications related to food supply. Moreover, the conversion of agricultural residues to biofuels can provide an additional revenue to the industries producing these wastes.
This project will identify the risks, challenges and economic benefits of using hybridised solar gasification for production of Fischer-Tropsch fuels, hydrogen and hydrogen carriers from agricultural, wood processing and construction wastes. In addition to providing a technical and economical overview of using solar energy for conversion of waste biomass to valuable fuels, the conversion efficiency and performance of conventional, non-solar reactor will also be evaluated and compared.
