Objective 5. Feedstock Conversion/Refining
The Feedstock Conversion/Refining research team will perform a detailed economic analysis on the performance of a refinery based on pyrolytic processing of biomass into liquid fuels and provide biochar to other researchers on the project.
The team concentrates on two highly focused goals:
- Estimate energy efficiency, GHG emissions, capital costs, and operating costs of the proposed biomass-to-biofuels conversion system using techno-economic analysis; and
- Prepare and characterize biochar for agronomics evaluations by CenUSA Bioenergy's Sustainable Feedstock Production Systems research team.
