Enviva releases White Paper on the evolution of modern bioenergy in heavy industry verticals

Enviva, the world’s leading producer of sustainably sourced wood biomass, has published a white paper looking at how to unlock the future of biomass beyond fossil fuels in other industrial applications, including steel, cement, lime, chemicals and fuel. sustainable aviation (SAF), among others. .
While Enviva’s sustainably sourced biomass is predominantly used today to decarbonize power and heat generation, modern biomass will increasingly be used to reduce emissions in these hard-to-reduce sectors that are responsible for nearly a third of global CO2 emissions as governments, businesses, and industry strive to mitigate their impacts on climate change through net-zero emissions targets.
All sectors, including energy, construction, transportation, aviation and food systems, are seeking to rapidly decarbonize, and sustainably sourced biomass is the only technologically advanced, scalable and market-ready product that is poised to substantially mitigate climate change and decarbonize supply chains in general. , according to Enviva.
This week, Enviva, other industry experts, customers and key supply chain partners will gather at the 2022 US Industrial Pellet Association (USIPA) conference in Miami to discuss the prospects and opportunities for the industry to drive the next wave of growth.
Taking advantage of what it described as “the most important event in the industry”, Enviva presented its white paper, Biomass: unlocking a future beyond fossil fuelsdescribing how Enviva Wood Biomass can offer a turnkey solution for decarbonization in various industrial applications based on a reliable, sustainable, large-scale producer with a strong business spanning multiple continents.
Many of the process temperatures, chemicals and feedstocks that are currently derived from fossil fuels can be produced more cleanly and at lower cost with sustainably sourced biomass. In fact, the production of a wide range of liquid and gaseous fuels and industrial chemicals is possible thanks to the wood biomass feedstock. Enviva recently announced its first US-based SAF contract with Alder Fuels to provide the biomass feedstock flexibility needed to achieve large-scale jet fuel decarbonization.
“The wood biomass industry will play a critical role in carbon removal for the future, while unlocking new value chains for hard-to-reduce industries,” said Enviva President Thomas Meth. “Enviva is at the forefront of this movement, offering a realistic solution that is available at scale today, building a global bioeconomy, from power and heat to new green industrial applications. By serving as a trusted and sustainably sourced biomass producer, Enviva will continue to meet the world’s growing demand for energy while pursuing new low-carbon applications for biomass.”
Looking ahead, mainstream academic, scientific and policy support continues to reinforce the European Union’s long-standing conclusions on the positive climate benefits of renewable energy with increased use of biomass.
Most recently, the United States took historic steps by passing the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) that supports the global transition to clean energy and climate change mitigation strategies by extending and modifying tax credits for the production of renewable energy from biomass and other technologies. as well as improving tax credits for carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) in both industrial facilities and power plants throughout the country.
SAF, green lime, green steel and green cement offer opportunities today that will only grow in the future as our climate-challenged world looks for more sustainable solutions. Enviva is proud to continue and grow its core mission of maintaining and improving the health of America’s forests while reducing lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. world through new and expanded opportunities.
As Enviva looks to the future and the positive climate impacts that biomass has to offer, not only for the energy sector, but also in the production of critical industrial materials and biofuels, the company invites you to read our new white paper: Biomass: unlocking a future beyond fossil fuels here.
