||Feedstock selection and formulation
||Idaho National Laboratory (INL)
||M.M. Ramirez-Corredores (INL), Vicki Thompson (INL)
- Equipment to size reduce and fractionate solid materials (biomass, MSW, etc.) at up to 5 tons/hr.
- Storage reactors capable of controlling temperature, moisture, and gas composition for material degradation studies.
- Analytical characterization including, particle size characterization, composition, elemental analysis, and various spectrometers.
- Material flow characterization equipment to help inform operations scale-up.
||Large quantities of feedstock or hydrocarbon feed are required.
||Pilot scale facilities enable production of conversion ready feedstocks from low cost resources as well as biofuels in volumes sufficient for fuel performance characterization.
||Capabilities are available with enough advance planning.
