Biomass pre-treatment for bioenergy – Case study 1: Biomass Torrefaction

Oct 2018

This report analyses the effects of pretreatment on supply chain efficiency by comparing the energy consumption along the supply chain of White Wood Pellets (WWP) supply with Torrefied Wood Pellets (TWP) supply. In a typical case, transporting the biomass from Indonesia to Japan, overall energy savings of 6.7% and 10.3% GHG emission reduction can be achieved when shifting from WWP to TWP.
