Technology Assessment and Acquisition
The use of biomass to generate heat, energy, and petroleum substitutes such as bio-oil or biocrude have showed much promise as a tool for reducing our reliance on imported oil and reducing the world’s total carbon output through carbon recycling. This paper is a technology assessment of biomass conversion technologies used at a hypothetical organization Green Tech. This paper outlines the steps on how Green Tech went from defining a problem to performing a gap analysis, defining requirements, identifying selection criteria and finally performing a cost-benefit analysis on three biomass conversion technologies.
