The techno-economic performance and CO2 equivalent (CO2eq) reduction potential of bio-based aromatic production cases with and without CO2 capture and storage (CCS) have been evaluated and compared to those of fossil-based aromatic production. The bio-cases include tail gas reactive pyrolysis (TGRP), catalytic pyrolysis (CP), hydrothermal...

The global road network spans 64.3million km and is of huge significance for the social and economic development. The level of investment in road construction and maintenance is high, e.g. EU €44billion/year (2019), China €614.7billion/year (2019) and US €94billion/year (2019). Despite the level of investment, there has been minimal investment...

Spatially sensitive regional renewables’ potentials are greatly influenced by existing land-use claims and related spatial and environmental policies. Similarly, heat particularly related to low-temperature demand applications in the built environment (BE) is highly spatially explicit. This study developed an analytical approach for a detailed...

Acetone organosolv fractionation of beech and birch wood at the lab-scale results in high sugar yields from the (hemi)cellulose and the isolation of a high-purity lignin. In this study, the process is scaled up to validate the technology at the pilot scale using industrial-size beech and birch wood chips and low liquid-to-solid ratios as a next...

To demonstrate the benefits of upgrading biomass, six samples of unique materials were combusted under pulverized fuel conditions aiming at the demonstration of complete coal replacement. These fuels were: sugarcane bagasse (SCB) (raw and steam exploded); sugarcane trash (SCT) (steam exploded and washed þ steam exploded); empty fruit bunch ...

The large-scale integration of variable renewable energy sources into the energy system presents techno–economic challenges. Long–term energy system optimization models fail to ade quately capture these challenges because of the low temporal resolution of these tools. This limitation has often been addressed either by direct improvements within...

Environmental factors, including greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and soil organic carbon (SOC), should be considered when building a sustainable biofuel supply chain. This work developed a three-step optimization approach integrating a geographical information system-based mixed-integer linear programming model to economically optimize the...

Purpose: This study evaluates the potential of biomass ash as raw clinker material and the influence of biomass feedstock and thermal conversion technology on biomass ash properties. Methods: A set of criteria for biomass feedstock and ash properties (i.e. CaO/SiO2 ratio and burnability) are established. A large dataset was collected and the...

The transition to a sustainable bio-based economy is perceived as a valid path towards low-carbon development for emerging economies that have rich biomass resources. In the case of Colombia, the role of biomass has been tackled through qualitative roadmaps and regional climate policy assessments. However, neither of these approaches has...

Energy crop expansion can increase land demand and generate displacement of food crops, which impacts greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions mainly through land-use change (LUC). Increased agricultural productivity could compensate for this. Our study aims to evaluate the regional combined GHG emissions of increasing agricultural yields for food crop...

Climate changes will have a huge impact on society, one that cannot be truly predicted. However, what is known is that our dependence on fossil feedstock for energy, fuel and chemical production will need to shift towards more biobased and circular feedstock. This paper describes part of an important technology development that uses biogenic and...

A harmonized method was developed to assess CO2 mitigation performance and avoidance costs for different steel production routes, including blast furnace with blast oxygen furnace (BOF), direct reduced iron (DRI) production with electric arc furnace (EAF), and Hisarna with BOF. Mass and energy balances were used to evaluate each route's cradle...

The Colombian agricultural sector has the capacity and ambition to reduce its land use and GHG emissions through sustainable intensification of livestock production. However, the impact of such pathway on the availability of land for bioenergy crops production has not been thoroughly investigated. Moreover, previous assessments of the role...

Solid biofuels are currently used in increasing volumes to replace fossil equivalents. Next to the traditional wood derived fuels, the advancement of biomass upgrading technologies like steam explosion (SE), followed by pelleting, further broadens the variety of materials on the market. This thermochemical and mechanical upgrading improves...

In the Netherlands, roughly one and a half million tonnes of sludge end up in waste incineration plants, costing around 120 million euros. Sewage sludge is a waste stream produced at urban wastewater treatment plants and is largely being disposed of by truck trans-portation and incineration. With existing technologies sewage sludge can be...

Biomass combustion is widely recognized as one of the important options to contribute to the necessary CO2 emissions reductions in the EU and World-wide on short term. Both large-scale (co-)firing of biomass in coal-designed plants, as well as dedicated stand-alone CHP units can deliver the necessary contributions to the reduction targets. This...

New biobased polyurethane (PU) coatings with high lignin content were developed and characterized in this work. These materials were based on a ?,?-diisocyanate monomer (1,4-bis(4-isocyanato-2-methoxyphenoxy)butane, VA-NCO) obtained from lignin-derived vanillic acid and its further cross-linking reaction with three different nonchemically...
