Title: Process Design and Economics for the Conversion of Lignocellulosic Biomass to Hydrocarbon Fuels and Coproducts: 2018 Biochemical Design Case Update; Biochemical Deconstruction and Conversion of Biomass to Fuels and Products via Integrated Biorefinery Pathways

Abstract

Over the past decade, NREL conducted a campaign to quantify the economic implications associated with observed and future targeted performance for the biochemical conversion of corn stover to ethanol through techno-economic modeling. This report serves as an update to the biological sugar conversion approach, reflecting modifications to underlying conversion operational strategies, as well as refinements to the techno-economic model details. In addition, the report includes a more quantitative focus on envisioned processing requirements for achieving final fuel cost goals moving further into the future, via inclusion of value-added coproducts.
