This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) production from switchgrass. The process examined is similar to one developed by Iowa State University. In this process, switchgrass is gasified to synthesis gas (syngas), which is fermented to PHB. Hydrogen is generated as by-product.
This report, PHB E11A, is a best-in-class examination of Polyhydroxybutyrate production, providing an in-depth, comprehensive techno-economic analysis of the production technology examined, including:
- Process Description: raw materials and utilities consumption, products generation, labor requirements, list of equipment, characterization of site infrastructure, process flow diagram (PFD).
- Capital Cost Analysis: costs of plant construction, working capital, owners' costs, commissioning, start-up and contingency.
- Operating Cost Analysis: variable costs, fixed costs (salary, benefits & maintenance) and corporate overhead costs.
- And much more . . .
