Sammanfattning

Full-scale ethanol production from spruce has been evaluated, mainly from an energy perspective, using an Aspen Plus-model including all major process steps. The model input was based on data recently obtained on lab scale or in a process development unit. A number of different process configurations are presented in order to demonstrate how heat integration within the ethanol process significantly reduces the energy demand, and thereby the production cost. Co-location and integration with a combined heat and power plant is discussed as a way to further increase the energy efficiency and improve the process economy.
