This report examines the uses of bioliquids for heat, electricity and combined heat and power (CHP) in the UK.

Highlights

  • Bioliquid feedstocks and their likely availability in 2020 were analysed
  • Heat, power and CHP technologies suited to use of bioliquids were assessed
  • Market opportunities and possible levels of heat and power generation from bioliquids in 2020 were examined
  • Advantages to developing bioliquids and the barriers to deployment​ discussed

Reasons to buy

  • To understand market opportunities of bioliquids  
  • To assess potential availability of bio-feedstocks
  • To inform developers of the suitability of bioliquid technologies
  • For policy makers planning to meet targets

Summary

There is increasing interest in use of bioliquids for heat and electricity generation, as well as CHP generation. The technology is particularly well suited to small scale, urban and community owned energy schemes. However bioliquids include feedstocks which are often seen as controversial from a general public perspective, such as palm or soy oil. In addition, bioliquids have competing alternative uses including use as transport fuels and as feedstocks in other industries (e.g. soap manufacturing).

A good understanding of the various technologies and feedstock availabilities as well as the potential trade-offs is central to informing policy in this area. Therefore the NNFCC were commissioned to investigate:

  • All potential bioliquid feedstocks and their likely availability in 2020 (accounting for costs and competing demand levels from transport/other industries in 2020) – including vegetable oils, tallow, used cooking oil, tall oil, biodiesel, and pyrolysis oil 
  • Heat, power and CHP technologies suited to use of bioliquids
  • Market opportunities and possible levels of heat and power generation from bioliquids in 2020 

The report examines the potential of bioliquid feedstock, technologies and markets to meet the Renewable Energy Strategy 2020 targets for electricity and heat. It also outlines the advantages to developing bioliquids and the barriers to deployment.
