Title: Biomass Blending Densification System
Agency: DOE
Contract: DE-FG02-08ER85187
Award Amount: $749,855.00
 

Abstract:

Conventional biomass densification and energy enhancement equipment is too costly for use in upgrading feedstocks for biofuels plants. Therefore, this project will develop an innovative biomass blending and densification system (BBADS) to densify biomass and upgrade the energy value. In Phase I, the biomass densification system was designed, and the performance of the system was estimated. In Phase II, a pilot-scale densifier will be built and tested, first in the laboratory and ultimately in the field. Lastly, the technical and economic feasibility of the concept will be evaluated for biofuels production. Commercial Applications and other Benefits as described by the awardee: The innovative BBADS could be used to densify biomass residues at widely dispersed production sites. The application of this technology could result in cost savings of over $1.3 billion/year, and also would offset fossil fuel use
