Phillips, S., et al., "Thermochemical Ethanol via Direct Gasification and Mixed Alcohol Synthesis of Lignocellulosic Biomass, " Report NREL/TP-510-45913, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), 2009

This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of second generation Ethanol production from wood chips. The process examined is similar to the one reported by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). In this process, biomass is subjected to gasification generating syngas, which is then converted to Ethanol. The process employs concepts similar to those proposed in patents issued to Range Fuels. Mixed alcohols are generated as by-products.

Ethanol E55A
This report presents the economics of Anhydrous Ethanol production from wood chips in the United States. In the process examined, wood feedstock is submitted to direct gasification, producing synthesis gas. Next, the syngas is converted to mixed alcohols. The alcohol mixture is then distilled, yielding ethanol and a mixture of higher molecular weight alcohols.

Production Cost Report | Ethanol E55A

Details: 100 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2023   |   107 pages   |   See Versions  From $799 USD

This report presents a cost analysis of a 100 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. You can add a customized cost analysis, assuming another plant capacity and/or location (country), when ordering an advanced version of this report.

This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of second generation Ethanol production from wood chips. The process examined is similar to the one reported by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). In this process, biomass is subjected to gasification generating syngas, which is then converted to Ethanol. The process employs concepts similar to those proposed in patents issued to Range Fuels. Mixed alcohols are generated as by-products.

This report, Ethanol E55A, is a best-in-class examination of Ethanol production, providing an in-depth, comprehensive techno-economic analysis of the production technology examined, including:
