A Technical, Economic and Environmental Evaluation of Challenging Biomass Feedstocks in France for Combined Heat and Power (Chp) Gasification

L. Dieckhoff & O. Authier
Reducing costs of biomass feedstocks is a key factor to ensure economic efficiency of biomass CHP gasification plants. A study has been carried out within the French project GAMECO to evaluate the technical, economic and environmental impact of the supply chains of a few challenging biomass feedstocks identified as offering lower costs than conventional biomass in France and being promising for fluidized bed gasification. The investigated feedstocks consist of agricultural residues, by­products from the wood...
