New Report Recommends Illinois Ethanol Producers Utilize Biomass CHP

CB060077LAKEWOOD, Colo. – BBI International has recently announced the release of the first in a series of technical reports addressing the impact upon statewide renewable portfolio standards (RPS) of installing biomass fired combined heat and power facilities (CHP) at the state’s ethanol facilities. The first installment in this new series of reports will concentrate on Illinois, which currently produces 976 MGY of ethanol, with an additional 188 MGY of capacity under construction and 78 MGY of capacity currently idled.

Jeff Coombe, BBI Manager of Technical Studies said,

Combined Heat and Power facilities fired by biomass represent a real opportunity for ethanol producers to control energy costs, contribute to their state’s renewable portfolio standards, and reduce the carbon score of their facilities.

BBI International’s report analyzes the biomass required to fuel a CHP facility, the incremental energy required to size and handle the biomass, and average capital costs. The report also models the economic impact of a number of variables on the financial viability of deploying a CHP facility including the prices of natural gas, electricity, and biomass.
