16
Concept of the AIChE Sustainability Indexsm
  • Based on the Wright Killen Refinery Survival
    Index (Oil and Gas Journal)
  • Meant to fill a gap
  • Relies more heavily on quantitative performance
    indicators
  • Provides a heavier weighting applied to various
    indicators of safety and environmental
    performance and to technological innovation
    towards SD
  • Available to range of sectors, company size
  • The scoring robust methodology designed to
    account for subjectivity in a transparent manner.
  • Designed to avoid the black box problem of
    other indices
  • Intended for executives and directors to manage
    company business lines
  • Global, initially focusing on major chemical
    companies
  • Publication remains silent on individual company
    ratings
  • Companies find it useful to benchmark themselves
    relative to a set of companies

58
Process of Evaluation Willow Ethanol
  • Facts about willow ethanol
  • Costs
  • Willow biomass
  • 50 per dry ton cellulosic biomass
  • Willow ethanol
  • 1.90 - 2.25 per gallon
  • Production
  • US production goals
  • 1 billion gallons per year by 2015
  • Current production
  • 0.66 million gallons of cellulosic ethanol per
    year from Iogen in Canada

59
Upstream Input Questions
  • Can feedstock price, availability and access be
    maintained over the long-term?
  • Would customer/stakeholder concerns affect the
    future use of the feedstock
  • Are there current or expected future regulatory
    drivers that may affect steady supply of
    feedstock?

60
  • Can feedstock price, availability and access be
    maintained over the long-term?
  • Corn Feedstock expected to continue to see
    dramatic increase in demand resulting in increase
    in price.
  • Increase demand for Corn Feedstock causing an
    increase in prices.
  • Corn planted in 2007 saw a 113 increase over
    2006
  • Corn is in high demand as a food product as well.
  • used livestock feed various livestock
  • corn syrup as the sweetener for most soft drinks.
    (Hargreaves, 2007)
  • This competition will further limit access and
    raise prices.
  • Corn feedstock price and availability can not be
    maintained if demand continues to increase. The
    limit for maximum corn production has nearly been
    reached
  • New technology in feedstocks may cause drop in
    demand and price.
  • Long-term viability of corn feedstock not likely
    to be maintained.

61
  • Can feedstock price, availability and access be
    maintained over the long-term?
  • Demand for low-value timber, willow, has
    dramatically decreased in New York state recently
  • Current growth rate exceeds removal by 317.
    (Bower, 2007)
  • Production potential of 188 million dry tons of
    willow in NYS by 2008
  • Long term market should be stable (Bower, 2007)
  • Willow feedstock shows very little fluctuation in
    price or availability.

62
  • How energy intensive is the feedstock?  Which
    feedstock materials is the most energy intensive
    and are there energy-efficient alternatives?
  • Corn feedstock production is heavily reliant on
    fossil fuels for the production of pesticides and
    fertilizers, operation of the equipment, and
    transportation.
  • Short Rotation Willow Coppice (SRWC), the hybrid
    of willow used as biomass for energy, is much
    less energy intensive than corn. This is because
    willow has far fewer inputs.
  • Other alternatives for cellulosic ethanol
    feedstock such as sugar cane, switchgrass and
    miscanthus have the potential to be developed as
    very low input crops, if suitable for the region
    lower Net Energy Balance.
  • Willow is more energy efficient than corn, but
    not necessarily the most energy efficient.

63
  • 18. Would customer/stakeholder concerns affect
    the future use of the feedstock?
  • Corn feedstock is being impacted by the concerns
    of outside political/private stakeholders.
  • President Bush - by the end of the decade America
    will meet 20 of oil needs with renewable sources
  • Demand requires 35 billion gallons of fuel
    primarily from corn ethanol, already effecting
    the allocation of fields to corn and the price of
    dairy
  • In 2007 27 or 3.4 billion bushels of the corn
    crop is expected to be needed for ethanol, up 20
    from 2006.
  • With expected increase in demand, a shortage is
    expected in corn stockpiles going in to 2008,
    despite a 12.46 billion bushel crop predicted for
    2007 (Brahic, 2007)
  • A recent surge in corn-based ethanol investment
    is encouraging growth. (Hasan, 2006)
  • Interest and concern from political/private
    stakeholders will have a significant effect on
    how the corn crop is used in the future.

64
  • 18. Would customer/stakeholder concerns affect
    the future use of the feedstock?
  • .
  • Willow feedstock initially would be grown almost
    exclusively on land being leased to the producers
    via private land owners and farmers. (Pioneering
    Energy Crops..., 2000)
  • Cooperation and the future of the feedstock are
    contingent on the confidence of landowners in the
    market for willow ethanol.
  • Willow-based ethanol industrial scale is very
    dependent on interest from investors, customers
    and potential farmers

65
  • Would the new product or process reduce GHG
    emissions over the entire lifecycle?
  • Plants sequester CO2 Given the conditions of
    0.25 tons ground C increase per hectare per year,
    no net CO2 will be emitted
  • Fewer N2O emissions will be released in willow
    farming than is released in corn farming because
    of the fewer amounts of fertilizers used
  • Shipment by train and truck is needed and will
    require more energy usage than shipment by
    pipelines
  • GHG emissions are increased because of
    long-distance shipment by diesel burning trucks
  • While willow feedstock has less GHG emissions
    compared to corn, sequestration depends on
    farming conditions and GHG emissions in other
    life-cycle stages especially remain significant

66
  • Are there any demonstrated or anticipated changes
    to the marketplace or regulations that could
    affect environmental, societal or economic
    attractiveness?
  • Increasing costs of fossil fuels and future
    regulatory and other constraints on GHG will make
    ethanol less expensive than gasoline
  • Both cellulosic (willow) and corn ethanol are
    heavily tied to the government through subsidies
  • If political opinion and support were to be
    turned away from ethanol, this fledgling industry
    would have major issues
  • If the US government drops its tariffs against
    sugar cane import equaling 1.05 per gallon
    ethanol, it would make the marketplace more
    challenging
  • Willow ethanol can be very attractive in the long
    term, however the industry can only develop with
    the continuation of political support and
    subsidies

67
  • 23. Are there current or expected future
    regulatory drivers that may affect steady supply
    of feedstock?
  • Willow plant feedstock
  • Growth is currently exceeding the rate of harvest
  • Little or no competition for the feedstock among
    other industries
  • Great abundance near the plant site. (Bower,
    2007)
  • Corn feedstock production was the most subsidized
    crop in America with an allocated 37.5 billion
    dollars in subsidies between 1995 and 2003
    (Bryce, 2005)
  • Huge financial burden will not be sustainable as
    alternative feedstocks are developed limiting the
    competitiveness and scope of corn as a feedstock.
    (Keeney, 2006)
  • Great demand has caused the corn price per bushel
    to rise over 50 in less than two years.
    (Hargreaves, 2007)
  • Future supply of corn feedstock is very dependent
    on how much land can realistically be used to
    grow corn, what the corn is to be used for, and
    how long the subsidies last.
  • Variation in Regulatory drivers (outside of
    subsidies e.g. water run off, fertilizer use and
    misuse) must be more fully understood and
    discussed with policy makers. Impact may have
    significant impact on supply of corn feedstock.

Sustainability An emerging trend?
All the benefits blessings flowing from the use
of the earth were held to be the rightful
heritage of all generations
…treat the earth as though we are tenants,
rather than owners….we must leave behind enough
and as good for others
The Old Testament- Genesis Deuteronomy
John Locke, Two Treatises of Government, 1689
Then I say the earth belongs to each…generation
during its course…no generation may contract
debts greater than may be paid during the course
of its own existence
Thomas Jefferson, 1789
