Business Case is presented for projects with an existing hydrogen and methanol infrastructure in Europe.
All RED II proposals result in ambitious targets for Advanced Biofuels while the UK Government has indicated that Brexit could even mean an acceleration of biofuel mandates resulting in price support.
Assumptions and financial projections
The price for bio-methanol depends on biofuel prices. Bio-methanol can replace food-based ethanol for blending in petrol. The dependancy on the volatile methanol market is therefore strongly reduced
The ratio of feedstock/methanol can vary and depends on the quantity of carbon in the feedstock (or caloric value). Due to the addition of hydrogen all (> 96%) carbon in the feedstock is used
