Many biomass-based projects show that problems frequently occur due to over-simplified assumptions as to the sources, delivering quality and quantity, storage and reclaim requirements, and pre-processing of biomass to meet the process feedstock specifications. If your region needs an alternative to landfilling and seeks not only recycling of the easy stuff – clean paper, plastics, and metals – but of all the organics and plastics that are currently discarded, then Waste-to-Value experts can define a range of solutions for you.
A biomass sourcing and handling expert should have both academic training and extensive practical experience of the ranges of biomass types practically available, the various processes and equipment used in biomass storage and reclaim, and of the necessary biomass preparation steps required to provide a consistent supply of on-spec feedstock to the conversion process. Biomass sourcing and handling consultants should have already had the experience of the principal biomass sources and project configurations used and can apply these to your needs.
There is a range of available biomass feedstocks: forestry wastes and prime forestry raw materials; urban wood wastes, woody agricultural wastes, sawmill and wood manufacturing wastes, agricultural and food processing non-woody wastes, consumer and commercial food wastes, C&D biomass, utility ROW materials, non-recyclable waste paper, manufacturing bio-wastes, sewage sludge, and recycling rejections. Experts should be able to assist you in negotiating optimum biomass procurement, specifying and building reliable feedstock reception, storage, reclaim, and processing facilities, and troubleshooting any problems.
