Design Case References

BETO develops and maintains example conceptual design cases with analysis for feedstock production, feedstocks logistics, and conversion to a specific fuel and, where economical, coproduct(s) and biopower. Each design case is based on specific design reports for feedstock technologies and conversion components of the pathway. Design cases provide engineering-based goal-year projections and R&D technical targets based on techno-economic analysis (TEA) across the supply chain accompanied by a whole supply chain sustainability analysis (SCSA) of that configuration. Design cases provide the benchmark against which the current state of technology (SOT) for BETO fuel production pathways is assessed to understand the technology breakthroughs needed to reach ultimate design-case-based technical targets.
