SMR Deployment Enablers - work break down structure and first 5 year project plan

The purpose of the SMR Deployment Enablers project was to identify the activities needed to take place in the first five years of a development plan for UK SMRs and the necessary capability of the SMR utility/developer organisation during this phase. Selection processes are out of scope so the starting assumption for the project is that both the SMR utility/developer and reactor vendor have already been identified.

This report presents a time line of the activities...

Energy From Waste : WP4.2 - UK Benefits Case - A Review of Biomass to Liquid Fuels via Pyrolysis Oil

H. Ziman, G. Hillier & S. Donegan
There is increasing commercial interest in the pyrolysis of biomass and wastes to form pyrolysis oil, a dark liquid that is sometimes colloquially referred to as bio-crude oil. However, it is not compatible with crude oil or the refining processes used to produce hydrocarbons (including fuels) and petrochemicals. Currently pyrolysis oils are mostly used as a low grade fuel to generate heat and power.Current processes for the production of biofuels for blending into transport fuels...

An ETI Perspective - Bioenergy crops in the UK. Case Studies of successful whole farm integration

Planting second generation (2G) energy crops such as Miscanthus and Short Rotation Coppice (SRC) Willow can provide an opportunity for farmers to diversify their income and increase the productivity of their land. To understand more about how farmers have integrated 2G energy crops into their wider farm business, the ETI commissioned three case studies to capture successful transitions to Miscanthus and SRC Willow, examining the financial impact of the crops and understanding how the farmers...
