What are supercritical biomass conversion experts? The supercritical steam conversion of woody biomass directly to a refine-able bio-crude, or directly to sugars, to monomers, and to synthesis gas have all been demonstrated. And supercritical steam technology is in widespread use for power generation. The goal now is to combine new bio-processing techniques with established supercritical systems to demonstrate reliable, superior, economics. Feedstocks include lignocellulose from wood, agricultural wastes, and municipal and industrial wastes – garbage. These are the goals of several major capital projects.
LEC experts are asked to assist with every phase of the development and operation of processes and projects to convert biomass feedstocks to biocrudes, sugars, and syngas. We start with our experts’ long experience of working with such feedstocks and supercritical conditions and the knowledge that the feedstock controls the process outcome. A supercritical team will include LEC biomass feedstock experts as well as SC equipment and process experts to ensure that developmental aspects of equipment scale-up and feedstock/product handling are addressed to minimize risks in this important area.
Then, LEC’s biomass experts will evaluate the proposed supercritical conversion process. LEC’s conversion experts support successive scale-up of processes to demonstration scale and fully commercial projects and offer an insight on the best strategies for doing so. LEC’s supercritical biomass conversion experts provide due diligence reports, assess the acquisition of existing biomass facilities as part of a new project, manage FEED design and equipment development work, advise on contracts and performance guarantees, and act as members of the Owner’s team into commercial operation.
A conversion expert is someone who has a significant background in this area, through education and experience. A supercritical biomass conversion expert has a wide range of expertise in the technologies and business practices used in accomplishing such projects.
