E4tech to lead ETI project on techno-economic assessment of biomass pre-processing

E4tech has been selected to lead the delivery of the ETI’s latest £467,000 bioenergy project. Over the next 11 months, E4tech and our partners will be assessing the economic, emissions and performance benefits (and trade-offs) associated with the pre-processing of biomass feedstocks. Using process modelling and sensitivity analysis, the project will compare different bioenergy system approaches with, and without, pre-processing steps between feedstock production and an energy conversion plant. E4tech will be managing a consortium of Imperial Consultants, PSE, CMCL innovations, Black & Veatch, and the University of Sheffield.
E4tech have worked with the ETI previously on their Biomass to Power with CCS and Biomass Systems Value Chain Modelling projects. This new project will make an important additional contribution to the ETI’s understanding of how different biomass characteristics impact supply chains, and where future opportunities and value lie in the bioenergy system.
