This report analyzes the technoeconomic developments in bio-naphtha technologies. Commercial hydroprocessed esters and fatty acids (HEFA), Fischer-Tropsch (FT), and pyrolysis based processes and high level economics are presented. Upcoming biorefining project (that include bio-naphtha units) are analyzed. Impacts on the conventional industry, trends and drivers are also discussed.
This report analyzes the technoeconomic developments in the renewable power industry. Relevant technologies processes and construction are described and their comparative economics presented and analyzed. Impacts on the conventional power industry, trends and drivers are also discussed.
The purpose of this report is to analyze developments in first and next generation bioethanol technologies. Next generation bioethanol, includes both second generation and bolt-on technologies. The purpose of this study is to assess the technical, commercial, and economic aspects of producing first and next generation ethanol, and to investigate future capacity developments
The purpose of this study is to analyze developments in thermoplastic starch and thermoplastic starch blends as replacements for conventional petrochemical polymers. The report examines the technical, commercial, and economic aspects of producing thermoplastic starch and thermoplastic starch blends, and their relative costs by region against conventional polypropylene and HDPE.
This report investigates the various commercial and developmental routes for the production of renewable ethylene. Ethanol, bionaphtha, and methanol are all investigated as biofeedstocks for ethylene, as well as sugar and glycerin based routes directly to ethylene glycol. Cost of production models, process descriptions, capacity analysis and implications for the conventional industry are included.
This report analyzes developments in bio-based butanediol (BDO) technologies. BDO (both 1,4-BDO and 2,3-BDO) derived from bio-based materials or processes can be used as is or converted into a number of chemical products - potentially improving the GHG profile of the process. This study assesses the technical, commercial, and economic aspects of producing different isomers of BDO via bio-based sources or processes.
This report analyzes the various technical and commercial developments regarding biocoal and biocrude to supplement conventional fossil sources. Analyses included technical and economic, as well as potential for impacts on the conventional industry.
This report is a comprehensive account on technologies that utilize carbon dioxide. Technologies profiled include carbonates, urea, methanol, ethanol, cement, and others. Results of economic analysis and analysis of CO2 utilization potential are included.
Renewable or green hydrogen is being developed as a working chemical for the renewable fuels and chemicals sector and as fuel for transportation and other applications. Production options explored for several global regions include thermochemical (biomass gasification), bio-methane reforming, electrolytic, and other, advanced pathways.
