Webinar: Life Cycle Assessment and Economics of Torrefied Biomass
August 9th, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
This webinar presents the results from a life cycle assessment and economic analysis of producing torrefied biomass from forest residues. Torrefaction is a low temperature thermal treatment process that improves the fuel handling characteristics of biomass. Using data collected from a pilot plant built for the Waste-to-Wisdom project, this webinar presents an outlook on the future of smaller-scale near-woods torrefaction from an environmental and economic perspective. Specifically, we will discuss the implications from a life cycle assessment of torrefied biomass and then describe the economics and potential markets.
