Objectives: To test the behaviour of the LogistEC feedstocks during TORWASH and Torrefaction, and to evaluate their suitability as raw materials for the production of solid bioenergy carriers. Rationale: Both TORWASH and Torrefaction are pre-treatment technologies that can improve the supply chain of biomass, by increasing the energy content of the fuel, and improving its fuel characteristics. This leads to the production of sustainable solid bioenergy carriers. In addition, TORWASH can reduce the salt content of tenacious herbaceous biomass.
