This report provides a comprehensive overview of technology options for biojet fuel production. It includes process descriptions and economics for the main routes for the best in class technology developers, as well as a discussion of market potential for North America, South America, Western Europe, and Asia.
The purpose of this report is to analyze biofeedstocks as a source of renewables. Biofeedstocks can be converted into a number of chemical and polymer products through technologies such as fermentation, gasification, pyrolysis, catalysis, among others. This study assesses the technical, commercial, and economic aspects of producing biofeedstocks as well as providing supply estimates.
Commercial and developing technologies for MEG production from petroleum, coal and biomass feedstocks have been reviewed. Process economics for MEG via ethylene from ethane, naphtha, methanol and ethanol have been developed. Regional supply/demand is included.
Routes to isoprene via C5 streams, as well as on-purpose and emerging biotransformation routes are discussed in detail. Process economics for seven technologies (including emerging bioroutes) have been developed (China, N.W. Europe, and U.S. bases). Regional market supply/demand is included.
The scale-up of industrial processes is discussed in terms of theory, design, implementation, cost and costing methods, and strategic implications. Methods of reducing operational, technical, and regulatory risk are discussed for both conventional technology and biotechnology. Includes detailed discussion of scale-up for gasification processes, fermentation processes, biomass feedstock logistics and handling, fixed beds and fluid beds.
The report analyzes the conventional carbohydrate crops against cellulosic biomass from a number of sources, exploring the opportunities for cellulosics to replace conventional carbohydrate crops as feedstocks for chemicals and fuels from renewable sources.
This study assesses developing technologies for acrylic acid production using bio-based and new petroleum-based feedstocks. It provides an economic analysis of the cash cost of production to produce acrylic acid via renewable sources versus petrochemical sources.
This report assesses the cost competitiveness of ethylene, on-purpose propylene, HDPE/LDPE/LLDPE, PP, VCM/PVC, EO/EG, Bz, SM, PX, PTA, MeOH and EtOH for USGC, Brazil, North Western and Eastern Europe, Middle East, Japan, Korea, Thailand, China, India, Singapore, and Canada.
Emerging biosuccinic acid process technologies have been analyzed and evaluated including cost of production estimates. Global succinic acid supply/demand is included.
