  • Bio4Energy System Analysis and Bioeconomy

    Systems analysis IMG for website
    The Bio4Energy platform for System Analysis and Bioeconomy conducts research in the following areas of activity:

    • Use of process integration methods to optimise plant energy and material flows;

     

    • Techno-economic assessments;

     

    • Application of life-cycle analysis (LCA) for environmental assessments;

     

    • Policy design and implementation, regulatory issues, market dynamics and innovation diffusion and adaptation, as well as;

     

    • Spatial modelling of cost-effective production plant localisations. (This implies efforts to minimise the cost of the entire system being studied, taking into account costs and revenues for feedstock outtake, terminal handling and transportation, production plants, transportation and delivery of final products, sales of co-products and economic policy instruments.)

  • Course Opening for Students, Industry Wanting to Place Bio-based Innovations in System Perspective

    B4E students AnnaStromBio4Energy young researchers present their ideas for new courses in the Bio4Energy Graduate School, at Skellefteå, Sweden in May 2019. Photo by Bio4Energy.Systems’ Perspectives on Biomass Resources – one of the two generic course in the Bio4Energy Graduate School for PhD and postdoctoral researchers – is set to kick off at Luleå, Sweden, in October.

    The course gives an overview of methods and tools to assess the efficiency of a nascent bio-based technology from an environmental and economic perspective, and as part of the mix of technologies already on the market. It also comes with a project assignment, designed to give participants hands-on experience of applying system analysis in some form.

    “The purpose of this course is to place technology-based research in perspective so that the student [specialised in a certain niche of biorefinery research] gains an understanding of the way in which his or her work fits into a larger, societal perspective,” said course coordinator This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

    “We want to give them methods and tools for that”, professor Lundmark added.

    Systems’ Perspectives on Biomass Resources is open to PhD and postdoctoral researchers interested in biorefinery, as well as representatives of industry. See below the Bio4Energy flyer for this third edition of the course. The deadline for applications is 27 September this year.

    “The expectation on those who enrol is active participation. They will be asked to bring their own research or subject of interest into the course. For instance, they can select a project they are already working on and apply system analysis to that”, Lundmark said.
