Abstract

The Ammonia Fiber Explosion (AFEX) process is an effective pretreatment for lignocellulosic biomass, but previous cost estimates developed for this process are based on outdated assumptions. Capital and operating costs for a stand alone AFEX process based on new research results are presented and compared to previous cost estimates. The AFEX process is also considered as part of an overall biorefining system producing fuel ethanol from biomass and the cost of ethanol production is estimated and compared with previous results. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting and Fall Showcase (Cincinnati, OH 10/30/2005-11/4/2005).
