BioEnergy & BioFuels Projects
Cellulosic Ethanol Plant
Baisch performed a study and pre-engineering for the project (FEL2 and FEL3) which are complete and accepted by Federal Authorities. The next phase will be the plant construction and start-up.
During the study work, Baisch also performed detail engineering for Mascoma for the scale-up from a pilot plant to a demonstration plant in Rome, New York.
The client's standards for plant equipment and construction were compared with optimized standards developed by Baisch. The Baisch developed standards resulted in a reduction of total plant installed costs of nearly 40%.
The study also afforded some interesting insights into economies of scale.
