BIOFIT Case Studies - How to Adapt Existing Industrial Facilities
Short Introductive summary
The BIOFIT project (www.biofit-h2020.eu) is a HORIZON2020 initiative that aims to facilitate the introduction of bioenergy retrofitting in five specific industries, namely first-generation biofuels, pulp and paper, fossil refineries, fossil firing power and Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plants. Within the project 10 case studies for retrofitting existing facilities have been studied in detail. The case study assessments cover most of the options for integrating biomass into existing industrial facilities, promising an easy to implement route to rolling out these technologies and making a significant impact on GHG emissions in the near term. We will present highlights from these case studies, describe challenges that we have encountered and lessons learned about how existing industries can be adapted to use more biomass and produce more bioenergy and biofuels.
