An upcoming webinar hosted by Waste to Wisdom will explore new innovations in biomass.

Life Cycle Assessment and Economics of Torrefied Biomass

August 9, 2017 at 9:00 a.m. (AK)

“Torrefaction is a low temperature thermal treatment process that improves the fuel handling characteristics of biomass. Using data collected from a pilot plant built for the Waste to Wisdom project, this webinar presents an outlook on the future of smaller-scale near-woods torrefaction from an environmental and economic perspective. Specifically, we will discuss the implications from a life cycle assessment of torrefied biomass and then describe the economics and potential markets.”
