BETO 2021 Peer Review - FCIC Task 5 - Preprocessing

Vicki Thompson, Rick Elander

Research output: NRELPresentation


In the study of feedstock variability, this presentation specifically looks at preprocessing processes that will created well-defined and homogenous feedstock from variable biomass resources, in the quest to produce homogeneous intermediates that will be converted into market-ready products. The objective of this stage of the project is to develop science-based design and operation principles informed by TEA/LCA that result in predictable, reliable, and scalable performance of preprocessing unit operations (comminution, fractionation, deconstruction, and real-time imaging).
