2 Summer Workshop, Veszprém 2009 WHY BIOETHANOL ?? 1. Fossil fuels are non-renewable 2. Growing concern about global warming 3. Possible disruption in oil supply 4. Alternative to gasoline, renewable energy 5. The most important long-term objectives of the European Union and United States in the energy sector are: - Achieving independence of fossil fuel energy supplies - Achieving substantial improvement of energy efficiency of the whole supply chain from production, distribution, to consumption, while minimizing emissions and waste - Achieving 20 % increase in the share of renewable energy (RES) by The share of renewable energy in all modes of transport has to be at least 10 % by 2020

3 Summer Workshop, Veszprém 2009 RAW MATERIALS Bioethanol can be produced by fermentation of: -Sugars (molasses), -Starchy raw materials (corn, potato) - Lignocellulose (wood, agricultural residues, municipal solid waste) First-generation biofuels: produced by fermentation of plants containing starch or sugar. This production has a lot of downsides: plants are mainly food crops, affection of the supply of population with food products, limited quantity, affecting biodiversity, may cause more GHG than fossil fuels, using chemicals for plant production, impact on drinking water supply,... Third-generation biofuels: produced from algae, sigle-celled aquatic organisms. Second-generation biofuels: produced by fermentation of lignocelluloses (agricultural residues, forestry waste, fast-growing energy crops...). Many technical and economic issues related to their use before 2020.

4 Summer Workshop, Veszprém 2009 OUR GOAL Problems with using bioethanol: - Usage requires modifications to the engines - Consumption in engines is about 51 % higher compared to gasoline - Costs for bioethanol production are very high (investment, costs of raw materials, etc.) Therefore it is necessary to develop effective, economical and environment friendly technologies of bioethanol production. Consumption of raw materials, energy and water should be very carefully analyzed, planed and optimized. Development and application of optimization methods are becoming necessary in the technique. Goal: Detailed synthesis and optimization of various production processes of bioethanol production from different raw materials.

5 Summer Workshop, Veszprém 2009 GENERAL OVERVIEW OF WORK Modeling and optimization was performed for ethanol production from: - starchy raw materials (corn, potato), dry milling process - sugars (molasses), direct fermentation - lignocelluloses: i)from corn stover, acid prehydrolysis and enzymatic hydrolysis ii)from wheat straw, ammonia fiber explosion (AFEX) and iii)from wood chips, gasification and subsequent fermentation of the produced syngas Superstructures of the processes are modeled as MINLP problems, which include both discrete (topology) and continuous variables (operating conditions, dimensions of the process units). Synthesis was caried out with and without heat integration. Different alternatives with respect to the separation of solids and liquids and alternatives to the dehydration of ethanol.

6 Summer Workshop, Veszprém 2009 STARCH-BASED PROCESS

7 Summer Workshop, Veszprém 2009 SUGAR-BASED PROCESS

8 Summer Workshop, Veszprém 2009 ACID PREHYDROLYSIS PROCESS

9 Summer Workshop, Veszprém 2009 AFEX PROCESS

10 Summer Workshop, Veszprém 2009 THERMOCHEMICAL PROCESS

11 Summer Workshop, Veszprém 2009 MIPSYN The computer package MIPSYN enabled us to optimize the chemical processes Processes producing fuel ethanol from biomass are biochemical processes. Completion of MIPSYN’s library PROSLIB with modules for synthesis of the biochemical processes package performs MINLP optimization on superstructures for process flowsheet enables automated execution of simultaneous topology and parameter optimization of processes Optimization was performed with equation-oriented process synthesizer MIPSYN. Modified OA/ER algorithm and modeling and decomposititon (M/D) strategy

21 Summer Workshop, Veszprém 2009 INPUT AND OUTPUT FILES The high level language GAMS (General Algebraic Modeling System) is interface for mathematical modeling with MIPSYN. Input and output files are written in GAMS language. User has to define (input files): 1.) the superstructure (p_struct) 2.) all data (datalib.gms) 3.) list of chemical components (p_compon) 4.) physical properties of components (if component is not defined) (compon) 5.) initialization scheme for non-existing modules in process flowsheet (initlib.gms) 6.) the additional modules equations (my_model.dat) 7.) components and their physical properties (p_dbase.lib). Output files: p_w.lst (listing file) optimum.res (optimal solution) p_b.res (MINLP iterations)
