We take The Renewalbe Fischer Tropsch Fuel a step further

The alternate is to gasify the black liquor and put the off gas through a Fischer Tropsch Process to generate a multi molecular weight, renewable feedstock that is more valuable than crude.

The Fischer Tropsch process is new to the forest products industry. However, it is used in other industries and is commercially available. The renewable feedstock is commonly known as RFTF (Renewable Fischer Tropsch Fuel).

The economics appear to be much better than the typical power case. However, with current technology, the recovery boiler needs to be at the end of its useful life and the mill sufficiently viable to warrant replacement.

I write to the people that are interested in this statement: "An engineering study is currently being conducted to confirm or change the assumptions made."
