Technical, Economic and Environmental (TEE) Assessment of Integrated Biorefineries – Gasification based biorefinery case studies
IEA Bioenergy Task42 “Biorefining in the Circular Economy” aims at enhancing the commercialisation and market development of biorefinery systems and the related technologies while considering environmental, social and economic aspects. Providing quantitative, scientifically sound, and understandable data on the technical, economic and ecological added-value of biorefining to co-produce bioenergy and bio-products in a sustainable way is an essential facilitator in this context. Therefore, an integrated assessment (technical, economic and environmental – TEE assessment) of integrated biorefineries is performed. The main objective of the current report is to
- maintain and update the TEE approach and methodology for generic biorefinery assessments on technical, ecological and economical aspects;
- disseminate the TEE approach and methodology and enable accessibility of primary calculations;
- publish updated & new factsheets based on the TEE approach and methodology and inform industry about market perspectives;
- discuss approaches to calculate the metrics on ecological aspects (e.g., GHG reduction effects of biorefineries) with other working groups (e.g. IEA IETS Annex XI and IEA Bioenergy Task 45) for alignment and further standardization.
Four new factsheets are now available based on this report.
