Description

The University of Minnesota is pleased to submit the final report for “Determining the Optimal Performance in Adapting Onsite Electrical Generation Platforms to Operate on producer Gas from Fuels of Opportunity, Concept Definition through Technology Development.” The University of Minnesota Morris campus was selected for this study primarily due to the advanced work the Morris campus has done in developing local fuels as a replacement for conventional fossil fuel supplies. Morris collaborated within the U of MN organization to bring the best research capabilities to the project. In addition, a core group of leading private partners was brought into the ... continued below

Description

The University of Minnesota is pleased to submit the final report for “Determining the Optimal Performance in Adapting Onsite Electrical Generation Platforms to Operate on producer Gas from Fuels of Opportunity, Concept Definition through Technology Development.” The University of Minnesota Morris campus was selected for this study primarily due to the advanced work the Morris campus has done in developing local fuels as a replacement for conventional fossil fuel supplies. Morris collaborated within the U of MN organization to bring the best research capabilities to the project. In addition, a core group of leading private partners was brought into the project based on their knowledge and expertise in portable energy platforms. The following report will illustrate the design and development process of comparing a nonconventional stationary biofueled combined heat and power plant with the state of the art biofueled portable internal combustion generator. The common denominator in this comparison is the focus on fuels of opportunity, which in this case is locally grown corn cobs. Both platforms used local sustainable fuel supplies to conduct the research and measure the outcomes.
