By-product of syntec process is char

The by-product of the Syntec process (BTL) is char and it turns out that char might be one of the best soil conditioners we could ever utilize in a process called Terra Preta.

Coal gasification cheaper than biomass gasification but costlier than GTL

Coal gasification is cheaper than biomass gasification, but more expensive than GTL. CTL will start to really come on strong as natural gas and oil both head down the other side of the depletion curve

NOx a problem in gasification

Although wood chips are easier to use in biomass gasification, the targeted biomass feedstock in this project is corn stover, whose nitrogen content presents a challenge, Brown said. The nitrogen in the feedstock itself, along with nitrogen from the air in some processes, increases nitrogen oxide emissions (NOx)?gases with a far greater GHG impact than carbon dioxide. - Read More

Capex costs for various bifouel processes

The problems with biomass gasification aren?t technical, they are economic. According to the EIA?s Annual Energy Outlook 2006, capital costs are $15,000-20,000 per installed barrel for a conventional oil refinery, $20,000-$30,000 for an ethanol plant, around $40,000 for gas-to-liquids (GTL), around $60,000 for coal-to-liquids, and around $120,000-$140,000 for biomass-to-liquids. - Read More

Biochar is a waste product from gasification

The main "waste" product from gasification is charcoal. For every pound of chips you put in, you get about .5 pounds of charcoal out the bottom. Importantly, this charcoal, has a plethora of uses: it can filter water, it can be used as a secondary fuel source (it cooks veggie brats nicely!), or it can be used to create Terra Preta or Bio-Char. - Read More
