The consumer markets of fossil fuel and chemical inputs incorporate renewable alternatives as long as there are proven economic gains. The environmental advantages by themselves are not yet enough to justify investments in this area. The standardization of fuel quality, the supply security on a large scale and the suiting to the current systems with low cost are some of the requirements of this market to decide on the use of renewable fuel and inputs. The mastership of standardization processes of the primary pyrolysis products and its production on a demonstrative commercial-scale are essential knowledge to the commercial trade of new fuel and inputs. Liquid Standardized Biomass - BPL, High Performance Coal - CAP and Biodegradable Organic Acids - BOA are products of Bioware's DirectDIST technology with potential for use in the fuel and chemical inputs market. The Liquid Standardized Biomass - BPL aims to serve the consumer market of 1A and BPF oil, diesel and natural gas in industrial furnace applications. The High Performance Coal - CAP aims to serve the Steel, Domestic and Hookah markets. The Biodegradable Organic Acids - BOA are a good choice for the market of insecticides, repellents and herbicides, for instance in the replacement of glyphosate. In all cases, the final consumer will benefit with up to 20% discount. Bioware's team has developed several research focused on improving the quality of the primary products of pyrolysis. However, investments are required for the up scaling of pilot units into demonstrative commercial ones, to pilot batches production and to run performance tests. The systematization, automation and monetization of the standardization processes and the up scaling of the technology into a demonstrative commercial unit is the main aiming for the deployment of DirectDIST Technology on industrial scale.
