Oil products

Crude oil production is transformed into oil products based on a refineries efficiency, differentiated by region. The refined oil products can then be used in final energy consumption sectors (transport, industry, buildings) and in power plants

Biomass to Liquid

The PROMETHEUS model differentiates 4 biomass-to-liquids production technologies (1st and 2nd generation bioethanol and biodiesel), each described by costs, technical efficiency and use of feedstock type:

The use of the different liquid biofuels is restricted by blending constraints (with oil products) in the various sectors.

Coal to Liquid

The Coal-to-liquid production (Fischer Tropsch) is described by one generic technology (cost and efficiency) to which a CCS module can be added.

Gas to Liquid

Similarly to CTL process, the gas-to-liquids production is described by one generic technology (cost and efficiency) to which a CCS module can be added.

The development of GTL depends on the distance between production cost and the oil price.
