This final report provides a summary of the benefit case of accelerating - by means of a technology demonstrator - technologies identified as promising by analysis of the UK bioenergy system using the Biomass Value Chain Model (BVCM) toolkit.
The proposals for technology acceleration, and therefore potential technology demonstrators, in bioenergy have been tested with the Bioenergy SAG. The importance of biomass gasification to H2 or bioSNG, and bio-CCS using chemical looping technology is being explored further to identify what are the technology barriers and whether ETI can play a meaningful role in accelerating the technology.
The development of the BVCM model has been ongoing since the project first started in 2011. The documents published here relate to the intial phases of model development. They do not included later developments and are therefore not representative of the current BVCM model, or in some cases, its findings. For a more recent overview of BVCM and the findings derived from it, readers are encouraged to look at the insights and reportspublished by the ETI.
