Singular and strategic project on Development, demonstration and viability evaluation of the production of energy in Spain from energy crops biomass. Dr. Juan E. Carrasco General Coordinator. February 2006
Objectives in terms of primary energy with energy crops in 2010 and total goals with biomass and renewable energy sources in Spain and the EU (Mtoe/year). Spain (PER )UE (White Book RE)
Objective and scope The objective is to develop a commercial demonstration of the production of energy in Spain utilizing biomass from selected energy crops, in order to determine the viability of this alternative, including an associated technology development program to Increase the viability of energy crops chains. The project program includes: Demonstration and technoeconomic and environmental evaluation of energy crops chains in Spain. Energy crops production and energy technology development. Exploitation and dissemination of results programm.
PSE-cultivos: especific features The PSE-cultivos project activities are a result of the farmers, industrials and investors interest. The whole energy crops chains are considered for evaluation. and the evaluation is made with homogeneous methods. Combines commercial demonstration activities, with RTD especific activities, some of which results will be demonstrated during the project. It can become a technological platform to coordinate and asses the energy crops development and implementation in Spain.
PSE-cultivos: general figures Duration Budget (M) Total affected land for crops demonstration Industrial and demo plants involved Period ,5 Period ,7 Total ( ).- 121,2 About ha in eight years 2 bioelectricity plants of 25 and 8,7 MWe. 1 coal power plant. 10 biomass heating domestic boilers. 1 lignocellulose 5Ml ethanol plant (demonstration). 1 downdraft 600kW biomass gasification plant (demonstration ).
