Eichleay prepared a front-end study for an integrated 500 dry ton per day biorefinery in order to reduce Hawaii’s dependence on imported fuel sources.
This feasibility effort entailed determining how to convert locally grown biomass feedstock, sweet sorghum into ethanol (using a fermentation, distillation, dehydration, and evaporation process) and/or syngas (using a licensed gasification technology). The ethanol would then be sold to the local refineries for gasoline blending and the syngas could either be used to fire a gas turbine for electricity or placed through a Fischer-Tropsch cycle to convert it to liquid fuel.
