Sulfur Profiling in Pine Residues and Its Impact on Thermochemical Conversion

Grants and Contracts Details


The overall goal of this project is to correlate the form and fate of sulfur in pine feedstocks to thermochemical conversion performance and to develop effective mitigation strategies. To achieve this goal, four specific objectives will be pursued: 1) define and characterize sulfur content/form in various sources of pine residues; 2) determine the fate of sulfur during thermochemical conversion including both pyrolysis and gasification; 3) develop and test the effectiveness of sulfur mitigation strategies; and 4) conduct feedstock logistics analysis and evaluate the techno-economic feasibility and environmental impacts of the strategies developed. We will use the outcomes to develop a predictive model that guides the design and implementation of a biorefinery using biomass feedstocks with varying sulfur profiles.
