Abstract

The port area of Rotterdam with its concentration of chemical and petrochemical
industry is an important contributor to the emission of CO2 in this country. The
Rotterdam Climate Initiative (RCI) aims to reduce the CO2 emission in 2025 by 50%
compared to 1990 levels. The use of biomass as a raw material for the production
of bio-based chemicals to replace fossil-based chemicals is indispensable in
reaching this goal. This paper describes the assessment of the economic, technical
and ecological feasibility of an isobutanol based complex in the Rotterdam harbor
area.
