Collaboration with other projects, networks and initiatives

This report will describe how during the whole project SmartCHP partners have engaged and collaborated with other relevant projects networks and initiatives This is linked to Task 75

Assessment of legal and regulatory issues

In this task and report the relevant legal and regulatory issues in 5 focus countries will be identified and a trajectory with measures will be proposed to adapt the technology or the legal framework where appropriate Deliverable linked to task 65

Boiler Performance using FPBO for a SmartCHP system

A report describing the boiler performance emission levels flame stability using FPBO under typical engine load conditions A proper startstop strategy will be developed since FPBO is difficult to ignite and special measures have to be implemented high performance electric ignitors to prevent unacceptable number of failed ignitionsDeliverable linked to task 33

Consumer and public acceptance assessment report

In this deliverable the three dimensions of social acceptance sociopolitical acceptance community acceptance and market acceptance of the future market introduction of SmartCHP systems are assessed The assessment will focus on 5 relevant countries as social acceptance can vary considerably between countries In the deliverable the findings are presented and summarised Deliverable linked to task 53

Biomass supply chain assessment report

A public report will be delivered by month 44 The report will contain biomass supply chain assessment where different feedstocks will be evaluated and selected It will include collection pretretament and logistics of biomassfrom a technoeconomic viewpoint ie assessment of required equipment needed labour material energy use other costs leading to insight in technical feasibility CAPEX and OPEX and related risks of the different supply chains Deliverable linked to task 23

The determination of the ignition and combustion characteristics of FPBO

A report on the ignition characteristics (Derived Cetane Number) of several FPBO's from different feedstocks. Data will be obtained from a constant volume vessel (CRU) at a relevant selected set of conditions with respect to pressure and temperature. Deliverable linked to task 3.1

Performance testing of the integrated SmartCHP prototype

This report describes the integral testing of the complete SmartCHP prototype It will contain a description of the system as well the actual performance achieved within the project It is linked to task 44

Life Cycle Assessment report

This deliverable concerns a screening Life Cycle Analysis LCA to compare the environmental impacts of four supply chains from biomass pyrolysis oil production and its application in SmartCHP systems compared to fossil reference cases like gas and oil The report provides quantitative insight in the environmental performance benefits and possible risks of FPBO supply and combustion in SmartCHP systems Deliverable linked to task 52

Fundamental spray combustion characteristics of FPBO and blends

A report containing detailed combustion characteristics of FPBOs form several feedstocks Consistent data will be obtained on a constant volume setup with optical access CRU at relevant pressures and temperatures The combustion performance of the complete spray combustion event up to the burnout phase will be analysed based on optical and pressure dataDeliverable linked to task 31

Final recommendations for policy makers

Based on the outcomes of the Work Packages and the coherent assessment performed in task71 in this deliverable a reduced set of policy recommendations will be derived The report will be an executive summary for policy makers of three to five pages Deliverable linked to task 66
