Bagasse pellet production for export for co-firing in coal-fired power stations.
A pre-feasibilty techno-economic model was created with a full value chain analysis, including logistics costs from origin to market. Meetings and negotiations between the international client and sugar milling groups were facilitated.

Options analysis for forest residue reclamation and the collection of wood processing residues.
A report entitled “Methods and Equipment for Collecting Forest Residues and Wood Waste” was the delivered output.

Coordination of field trials for the production of bioenergy crops.
Six trials of sweet sorghum cultivars and 2 of tropically adapted sugar beet were completed.

Bioenergy crop production and processing models.
Integrated crop production and processing models were produced for 5 bioenergy crops and 3 processes for producing fermentable sugars therefrom. Integration of energy production from crop and process residues was a key element. These models built upon many years of similar work over the period from 2002 onwards, and new elements and functionality are still being added to these “living” models.
