Working in close collaboration with the Conversion Technologies partners, Schatz Energy Research Center will coordinate and lead activities associated with comparative testing of the biomass conversion technologies at forest operations sites using target feedstocks. Schatz Energy Research Center’s role will include instrumentation, infield monitoring, and analysis of system performance. The measurements will include input fuel and output product characteristics, fuel and product mass flow rates, emissions, and auxiliary energy use. Economic and operational parameters such as labor utilization, operation and maintenance needs, and startup and shutdown requirements will also be recorded.
