By going through this mainly ‘on paper’, it is possible to prevent unnecessary costs of a relatively expensive practical test if the outcome of one of the earlier steps negative. ”

The scope of the process is in line with the goal of the Pyrolysis cluster: delivering a comprehensive business case for pyrolysis.
