Biomass energy and value maximization

A system and method to a power production cycle optimized for combusting fractionated solid biomass such that the fractionated solid biomass is transported in a solvent that is utilized in a solvent-enhanced biomass liquefaction conversion process and the solvent is subsequently fractionated from the fractionated solid biomass for direct use as a liquid fuel for transport vehicles to maximize energy density and total system energy efficiency. Utilizing the solvent as a waste heat recovery method prior to combustion by the transport vehicle increases the total system energy efficiency and maximizes biomass value creation.
