Techno-Economic Assessment

What you will learn from this TEA:

This document will analyze the impact on the business case of different variables such as energy supply in a specific region, products prices, equipment amortization and plant scale. All supporting technologies are analyzed, and cost-effective options assessed to provide a full set of solutions for our customers.

Additional TEA options:

Assessment of the supply chain of products; cost of commercialization of the generated valuable products in a specific geographical area and economic environment.​
Analysis of available funding options for ecological transition and greenhouse emission reduction.

The TEA consists of the following steps:

Intake sessions


The customer needs to provide information on the composition and volume of the emission, on the available resources on site, requested products, and logistics.

Process block
flow model

A block flow diagram is produced fitting the customer’s requirements. Each block represents a crucial discipline in the value chain, going from capturing, buffer storage, plasma processing, energy supply, etc.

Mass & energy

Mass and energy balance are simulated over the entire value chain.

Economic assessment

Based on real-life economic data, each process block is scoped with CAPEX and OPEX estimations as a function of GHG reduction percentage. The main criteria used are total cost of ownership and return on investment.

Sensitivity analysis


The input parameters of the model are mapped to identify their impact on the TCO and ROI. This will enable the identification of the critical parameters within the value chain.

Scalability and
next steps

We give an in-depth technical look at the plasma conversion process as process block, and explain D-CRBN’s route to market.
