Study Summary: The Bio-CCS study involved an economic analysis of the carbon and energy footprints for a case study in France, where both the capture and storage of a sugar beet refinery’s CO2 emissions. This case examined capture in two scenarios: 1) for fermentation alone, and 2) for fermentation and on-site combustion. First, the plant’s energy consumption was optimized. Then, because the plant can produce sugar and bioethanol in different proportions, a sensitivity analysis was performed on bioethanol production volume and the related CO2 emissions, so as to account for the entire operation spectrum. Finally, the financial incentives/subsidies were analysed. The complete abstract can be found below.
