Aims of the project are to carry out combined socio-economic and
corporate-economic analyses of concepts for bioethanol production
in Denmark. The project is split into two phases and will in total
analyze 3 different plant concepts for bioethanol production based
on biomass inputs comprising straw, grain, manure and domestic
waste. Main focus is put on two promising new plant concepts
where Denmark in particular has basic knowledge and competence.
Furthermore, existing bioethanol production plant concepts based
on grains only are included in the analyses as reference systems.
The two new plant concepts are characterized by synergistic
Bioethanol co-produced with CHP (Combined Heat and Power)
(IBUS concept). The biomass inputs to the process are straw, whole
crop, biomass residues, domestic waste etc... By-products from the
production are used as animal feed, fertilizer, and solid fuel.
Bioethanol co-produced with CHP and biogas (Risø-DTU concept).
The biomass inputs to the process are straw, whole crop, biomass
residues, domestic waste etc... By-products from the production are
re-circled to agriculture as well-declared fertilizer products.
These two concepts will be analyzed and compared based on the
same input biomass materials.
The present project information concerns phase I of the total
project, and comprises the socio-economic and corporate-economic
analysis of bioethanol production co-produced with CHP (IBUS
Due to difficulties in achieving data, consistency in data, and
consensus on data as expected and agreed in the project outline
among project partners the project unfortunately could not be
carried out to its original intention. As consequence only the limited
project reporting from phase I of the project is available. The
project report from October 2007 was published in March 2011.
