By | August 10, 2009
BBI International has released a technical report titled "Technoeconomic Analysis of Biomass CHP at Illinois Corn Ethanol Plants." The report investigates the impact that biomass powered combined heat and power (CHP) plants could have on Illinois' renewable portfolio standard, which requires 25 percent of the state's energy to be derived from renewable power by 2025. The report also details biomass combustion system efficiencies, estimated harvest costs for woody biomass residues, biomass feedstocks available in Illinois, CHP unit sizes, and financial modeling and sensitivity analyses for several CHP plant sizes.
