Feasibilities of a Coal-Biomass to Liquids Plant in Southern West Virginia

Performer: West Virginia University Research Corporation

Project No: FE0009997

Project Description

This project will determine the feasibility of a Coal-Biomass to Liquids (CBTL) facility in southern West Virginia. The study will include economic, technical, and financial feasibility along with a market analysis for CBTL fuel. For the analysis, three production scenarios will be used to determine the best technology, while multi-objective programming will be used to identify the best strategies for feedstock management, facility operations, and locating sites.
