Book Description :

Biomass Supply Chains for Bioenergy and Biorefining highlights the emergence of energy generation through the use of biomass and the ways it is becoming more widely used. The supply chains that produce the feedstocks, harvest, transport, store, and prepare them for combustion or refinement into other forms of fuel are long and complex, often differing from feedstock to feedstock. Biomass Supply Chains for Bioenergy and Biorefining considers every aspect of these supply chains, including their design, management, socioeconomic, and environmental impacts. The first part of the book introduces supply chains, biomass feedstocks, and their analysis, while the second part looks at the harvesting, handling, storage, and transportation of biomass. The third part studies the modeling of supply chains and their management, with the final section discussing, in minute detail, the supply chains involved in the production and usage of individual feedstocks, such as wood and sugar starches, oil crops, industrial biomass wastes, and municipal sewage stocks. Focuses on the complex supply chains of the various potential feedstocks for biomass energy generation Studies a wide range of biomass feedstocks, including woody energy crops, sugar and starch crops, lignocellulosic crops, oil crops, grass crops, algae, and biomass waste Reviews the modeling and optimization, standards, quality control and traceability, socioeconomic, and environmental impacts of supply chains

Book Description :

Biomass conversion to hydrocarbon fuels requires significant amounts of hydrogen. Fossil resources typically supply hydrogen via steam reforming. A new technology called microbial electrolysis cells (MECs) has emerged which can generate hydrogen from organic sources and biomass. The thermochemical route to fuels via pyrolysis generates bio-oil aqueous phase (BOAP) which can be used to make hydrogen. A process engineering and economic analysis of this technology was conducted for application in biorefineries of the future. Steam methane reforming, bio-oil separation and microbial electrolysis unit operations were simulated in Aspen Plus to derive the mass and energy balance for conversion of biomass. A process scheme using MEC to generate hydrogen, while minimizing use of natural gas was developed. A process design developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory was used as baseline biorefinery flowsheet. The results show that hydrogen production at a rate of 1,723 lb/hr can be derived using 19.5 % of the bio-oil as the substrate BOAP, while eliminating the need for natural gas. A two-step quench system allows separation of an aqueous stream containing about 23,000 lb/hr of organic substrate, sufficient for hydrogen generation, besides that generated from off-gas, so as to meet the total biorefinery hydrogen needs. The techno-economic analysis (TEA) showed that hydrogen can be generated for a minimum hydrogen selling price of $ 3.35/kg-H2. The results of this study show that hydrogen can be practically derived from an aqueous soluble bio-oil stream, while majority of the bio-oil is used for hydrocarbon production, using a wholly biomass-sourced hydrogen. This alternative has potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the biorefinery.
