Techno‐economic comparison of biogas cleaning for grid injection, compressed natural gas, and biogas‐to‐methanol conversion technologies

Technologies to upgrade biogas to value‐added products have great potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide economic benefits. However, the costs of conventional upgrading methods,...

A novel risk analysis methodology to evaluate the economic performance of a biorefinery and to quantify the economic incentives for participating biomass producers

In this paper, a novel risk analysis methodology is presented to evaluate the economic performance of a biorefinery given the volatility in the market price of the final product and the variability...

More than ethanol: a techno‐economic analysis of a corn stover‐ethanol biorefinery integrated with a hydrothermal liquefaction process to convert lignin into biochemicals

High‐value chemicals from lignin could increase the profitability of lignocellulosic biorefineries. Besides lignin from the paper and pulp industry, ethanol plants produce lignin as a waste; thus,...

Impacts of feedstock properties on the process economics of fast‐pyrolysis biorefineries

Feedstock properties are an important factor affecting the process yields and economics of fast‐pyrolysis biorefineries. This study develops a fast‐pyrolysis process model sensitive to feedstock...

Second‐generation bio‐based plastics are becoming a reality – Non‐renewable energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) balance of succinic acid‐based plastic end products made from lignocellulosic biomass

Bio‐based and bio‐degradable plastics such as polybutylene succinate (PBS) have the potential to become sustainable alternatives to petrochemical‐based plastics. Polybutylene succinate can be...

Biotechnological advances in lactic acid production by lactic acid bacteria: lignocellulose as novel substrate

The production of high added‐value products from lignocellulose is proposed as a suitable alternative to petroleum‐based resources in terms of environmental preservation, sustainability, and...

On the challenges facing the handling of solid biomass feedstocks

With a major global emphasis on the management of waste, alternative resources and a shift to environmentally sustainable technologies, demand for large volumes of heterogeneous solid biomass...

Current state of bioethanol fuel blends in Mexico

Environmental damage concerns combined with low levels of domestic gasoline production and high import amounts makes it imperative for Mexico to seek renewable biofuel sources. This paper focuses...

Cellulose micro‐ and nanofibrils (CMNF) manufacturing ‐ financial and risk assessment

Conversion economics, risk, and financial analyses for an industrial facility manufacturing cellulose micro‐ and nanofibrils (CMNF) from wood pulp is presented. Process data is based on mass and...

Global biomass trade for energy – Part 1: Statistical and methodological considerations

Many countries have limited, low‐cost biomass resources to satisfy their own demand for bioenergy. International trade of biomass in various solid and liquid forms is consequently increasing. The...
