BioShip - Potentials of Inland Waterways in Securing the Supply of the Austrian Bio-based Energy Industry
BioShip analyses the potentials to optimise and secure the supply chains of the austrian bio-energy plants (forest fuel, biofuel and biogas) with inland water navigation as an environmental friendly way of transport
By establishing regionally best situated logistic centers it shall be guaranteed that in all of Styria transport and processing costs will be reduced and that a continual supply of biomass firewood of constant quality is ensured.
Development of an business segment called "Waldbiomasseversorgung-SÜDOST" through senior utilization of non active wood
A sharp increase in the Austrian industry's demand for wood, and in particular the rising need of biomass plant operators for energy wood, has led to a fundamental transformation of the timber market from a buyer's to a seller's market. New marketing opportunities in terms of a range of wood energy products, combined with an efficient way of harvesting, have opened up new economic prospects for the forestry industry.
The project deals with the production of synthesis gas from biological fuels and biological residues using steam blown gasification. This synthesis gas will be used for polygeneration especially for heat, power, gaseous (substitute natural gas, SNG) and/or liquid fuel production.
Energy centre for the thermal conversion of biogenous raw materials and residues of a region to produce heat, electricity, SNG and liquid biofuels II
Production of synthesis gas from biological fuels and residues using steam blown gasification. This synthesis gas will be used for polygeneration especially for heat, power, gaseous and/or liquid fuels.
Development of a realistic concept for the production of Fischer-Tropsch-fuels from biomass in a size of about 200.000 to/a in Austria. Comprehensive evaluation of this concept with respect to available biomass resources, and economical and ecological benefits.
A virtual biomass plant comprising 30 micro-CHP-Modules, each of them integrated into an existing pellets-boiler in the Austrian region of eastern Styria is to be tested. The goal of this project is to gain experience and to introduce a new sustainable technology.
The project on hand is applied in the Austrian federal state Burgenland. It investigates possibilities to cover the future biomass demand of the county with resources from the county.
Participation in the investigation net of the IEA Bioenergy to greenhouse gas balance of biomass and bioenergetics systems as well as coordination of the Austrian participation in IEA Bioenergy.
A concept for a cooperative forest fuel supply chain network for a large part of Austria (regions of Salzburg, Upper Austria, Lower Austria, Vienna) is developed in order to minimise transport-, storage- and total system costs while simultaneously increasing supply guarantee for the plants.
Development of an optimal strategy to open up Austria's biomass potential until the year 2050. The optimal strategy maximizes the reduction of GHG emissions. Provision of an action plan for a temporal dynamic implementation of this strategy.
The production of bioethanol in Bruck/Leitha in addition to the production of heat, power and valuable by-products from biomass will be optimized by a new process simulation tool under the target of maximum usage of waste and low temperature heat and optimal source and product usage.
Biomass gasification is a success promising technology for the combined heat and power production based on the utilization of domestic biomass. With this project a safety and commissioning guideline for the technology was created for the enhancement of the technology's market introduction.
Technological as well as economical optimized Biomass CHP systems with regard to state-of-the-art technologies.
Analysis and presentation of representative biomass CHP systems with an electric power output of less than 2 MW. Variation of parameters and identification of potential optimized interactions between specific units. Identification of the economically and thermodynamically most optimized interconnection based on state-of-the-art technologies.
Test stand method for the determination of system efficiency and emission factors of small-scale biomass combustion systems
Determination of key data with practical relevance of typical applications in only one test run. Monitoring of air pollutants and efficiency and continuous improvement of technology possible with test stand method.
Development of a cost-effective cleaning unit, free of waste-products, for the upgrading of biogas to natural gas quality. Elaboration of the basis for a demonstration project injecting biogas into the gas distribution system of Salzburg.
Valuation models for future energy clusters considering market, technology and policy uncertainty - Case Study Biomass
Market liberalization, technological change and increasing complexity of international policy processes (e .g. climate negotiations) necessitate new approaches to evaluating investments in an uncertainty and risk-augmented framework. This project developed valuation methods from financial theory - such as real options valuation and portfolio optimization - to quantify the relative competitiveness of bioenergy chains and total energy systems.
