Economic and environmental optimization of the use of biomass residues
To record and evaluate existing processes and technical options, a data matrix is developed from which optimisation potentials can be derived. The deduction of optimisation potentials is allowed by a comparative examination of the resource protection potential and the energetic and material recovery potential. For that purpose a tool was developed that collects and weights relevant operational and process indexes. An evaluation index can be created from this which facilitates a ranking of the examined plants. In the first phase of the project the so far developed numerical tool was tested with archetype-plant. In the further course of the project the numerical tool will have to be evaluated by testing it with practical data.
As supplement to the numerical evaluation process under consideration of relevant conditions of a comparative approach, the use of a SWOT analysis for a comparative consideration of the resource protection potential and the energetic and material recovery potential is planned. The SWOT analysis is applied to a large number of technical solutions and processes. Therefore a suitable benchmark is to be created which will facilitate the comparison of the stages of development of single processes.
The ATZ is examining thermal processes for the energetic utilisation of biogenic residues. Moreover data are provided for the implementation of a SWOT analysis. For this purpose the state of the art of the thermal utilisation of biomass is identified. Finally the optimisation potential is checked to enlarge the range of fuels.
