Value Chain Analysis of Co-Firing Steam Explosion Pellets in Large-Scale Pulverized-Coal Power Plant
Short Introductive summary
This work addresses the economic and environmental impact of co-firing black pellets produced by steam explosion of woody biomass in large-scale pulverized coal power plants. The analysis is based mathematical modelling of the value chain model including: 1) the properties and availability of the raw feedstock, 2) the logistics of feedstock pretreatment, supply and storage and 3) the process, cost and environmental performance of the technologies for pretreatment of the feedstock and co-firing. A preliminary evaluation of the overall energy efficiency, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the economics along the complete value chain is performed and benchmarked with other relevant technological routes enabling the co-firing of woody biomass into pulverized-coal power plants.
