Biomass pre-treatment for bioenergy report released

April 28, 2019 |

In the Netherlands, IEA Bioenergy released its latest report, Biomass Pretreatment for Bioenergy which summarizes the efforts of an inter-task project designed to demonstrate how the application of certain biomass pre-treatment technologies could make existing bioenergy supply chains more fuel flexible, more efficient, and more cost-effective.

By applying biomass pre-treatment activities such as washing, drying, sieving, leaching, or thermal pre-treatment to lower-grade biomass, industry will be able to expand its resource base and increase the flexibility of various conversion technologies.

These pre-treatment options could have significant benefits for the biomass industry and the report summarizes the findings of five case studies that show the added value of biomass pre-treatment for certain resources and end user applications.
