Snatching Victory from the Jaws of Defeat : The Bio-Oil Research Team at UNH Project Funded by NH Industrial Research Center:  Snatching Victory from the Jaws of Defeat : The Bio-Oil Research Team at UNH Project Funded by NH Industrial Research Center UNH TEAM: Dr. Ihab Farag Christopher Barrett Caitlin LaClair January 2002- Present Coatings, Composites & Green Chemistry Workshops and Poster Sessions, MUB Strafford Rm, UNH, Durham, NH , June 5, 2002 Bleak Horizons…:  Bleak Horizons… Closing of the Berlin-Gorham paper mills Faltering wood chip electric plant Many left unemployed Excess low grade wood in NH Uses Low Quality Excess Wood Produced by Fast Pyrolysis. Dynamotive Yield 60-80 wt% Viscous dark oil (looks like espresso coffee). HV = 7,500 Btu/lb (about half of #2 fuel Oil HV). Bio-Oil:Promise of the Future Why look to Bio-Oil Vs. Wood or Fuel? :  Why look to Bio-Oil Vs. Wood or Fuel? Environmental Considerations No SOx Emissions CO2 Neutral No HG or Dioxin emission 50% lower NOx emissions than diesel fuel. Renewable and Locally Produced CO2 credit / Alternative fuel credit Storage and Transportation Additional Products (green chemicals) Northern NH Economy Why NH North Country?:  Why NH North Country? NH Forest-based industry employ more 11,500 person, and generate $3.9 B in goods and service. Wood, water, and labor are available. Opportunity to introduce Bio-Oil technology Coos County Carroll County Partnering for Success:  Partnering for Success Collaborate with stakeholders to investigate production of Bio-Oil in NH. UNH Bio-Oil, PSNH, NH DRED, US DOE, BEDCO, IRC, ECS, SBDC, USDA Forest Service, and UNH cooperative extension Goals of the UNH Bio-Oil Team Study the economic, social environmental, and technical aspects of Bio-Oil Production. Research Markets for Bio-Oil. Educate local communities about Bio-Oil. Fast Pyrolysis Products:  Fast Pyrolysis Products Bio-Oil Heating, power generation, green chemicals stock Other end uses are being explored. Char Energy Source Charcoal briquettes Non-Condensable Gases Recycled to provide heat for pyrolysis and drying. Pyrolysis Process Diagram:  Pyrolysis Process Diagram Wood Chip Feed Pyrolysis Reactor Bio-Oil Storage Unit Quencher Wood Grinding Wood Chip Drying Char collector Recycled non-condensable gases Challenges of Fast Pyrolysis to Produce Bio-Oil:  Challenges of Fast Pyrolysis to Produce Bio-Oil Drying of Bio-mass Small particle size necessary Reactor Scale-up Secondary Cracking Coaly matter separation Liquid gathering Bio-Oil: Other Incentives:  Bio-Oil: Other Incentives The HB 284-FN- Bill (NH Clean Power Act) 75% lower S02 emissions; 70% lower NOxemissions; 75% lower Hg emissions; 7% lower than 1990 C02 emissions By 2007. Environmental Action Programs (EAP) Rural Development Economic Recovery Forest Products Conservation Wood in Transportation Farm Bill 2002-The Forestry Title Forest Land Enhancement Programs (FLEP) Sustainable Forestry Outreach Initiative Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) Environmental Action Programs (EAP) Slide10:  Independent Preliminary Economic Analysis by UNH Consistent with studies by Cole Hill and Associates. On-going Research of technical and environmental impacts and issues. Market Feasibility of Bio-Oil End Users Bio-Oil Progress Slide11:  Cog RW Locomotives Research Feasibility of Replacing Coal Bio-Oil Markets on the Horizon Coal Dust Suppression Dust Suppression and Btu Enhancement for Coal Piles. . Paving Applications Exploring Bio-Oil as environmentally- friendly substitution in Paving Applications. Areas Currently Being Researched :  Areas Currently Being Researched Storage and longevity Low pH/ high acidity Immiscibility with non-aqueous liquids Combustion/Co-Firing Market Feasibility Composition & Properties:  Composition & Properties Storage Stability Problems- viscosity increases with time. Combustion Problems Associated with Aging- particulate size increases because of polymerization reactions in heated bio-oil causing equipment clogs or frequent filter changes. From Storage Effect on Bio-Oil Viscosity:  Storage Effect on Bio-Oil Viscosity Slide15:  Estimated Operational Cost of Bio-Oil Facility NH Fuel Cost Comparison:  NH Fuel Cost Comparison The values for Cole Hill Associates analysis was done in conjuncture with DynaMotive and is a base price.
