Technical and economical evaluation of enhanced biomass to liquid fuel processes

Energy, 2010, vol. 35, issue 9, 3587-3592
‘Enhanced Biomass-to-Liquid’ (EBtL) refers to BtL processes (biomass gasification and liquid fuel synthesis) with a significant increase in fuel production by means of external energy inputs. The conversion yield of biomass carbon into fuel carbon is multiplied by a factor of 3 in comparison with existing (autothermal) gasification processes. The technical options of such processes are outlined and evaluated in the paper: the production cost is estimated between 0.7 and 1.2 €/litre diesel.
