12 © FPInnovations Substitution of Existing Chemical Feeds Tactical approach: –Requires an exact molecular replicate of existing feeds –Cost, product performance will be crucial Olefins: thin margins, strong competition –Bio-ethylene from Brazilian sugar cane BTX: Breakthrough required –No easy path from lignin to commercial aromatics –The same issues of volumes vs. capex arise
13 © FPInnovations New Chemicals Based on Bio-properties Identify novel products based on unique biomass properties Requires strategic thinking –Cost less critical if new functionalities available? –Exact molecular replicate less critical? New capital infrastructure? Is this our 4%?
14 © FPInnovations Approach Identify value-added products from wood –Focus on chemicals first, then energy from residues Early economic evaluation (Bio-Pathways) Start with bolt-on additions to existing plants –Improve economics of existing infrastructure –Reduce costs due to shared infrastructure Build relationships with customers –Lab-scale samples initially, pilot scale as demand arises –Ensure product meets customers needs Involve engineering firms early –Good estimates of capex, opex, unexpected problems
15 © FPInnovations Long term: brownfield biorefineries Located on an existing mill site –Reuse existing equipment Integrated with forestry supply logistics –Build it as big as possible, consistent with supply costs –Produce a cheap-to-ship intermediate –Better understanding of processes and markets allows this –Use all components of wood in profitable fashion –Energy self-sufficient Integrated with end-users infrastructure –Minimize changes to existing petro-chemicals

18 © FPInnovations Conclusion Biomass is bulky, wet and distributed Petroleum is cheap, dense, comes out of a pipe GW TH -scale of forestry installations: –Driven by feedstock costs –Implies additives, not wholesale replacement Competing in commodities will be very challenging The petroleum example is critical –4% of feed makes 42% of revenues –Doing something useful with the other 96% is equally critical We can always burn the residues –Combustion, fermentation are among our oldest technologies
