Funded under :
Biogas Reforming and Valorisation Through PEM Fuel Cells
Biogas2PEM-FC is an industrial research project that aims to develop, according to participating SMEs needs, the technologies that compose a novel and integrated solution for biogas valorisation through proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEM). Such a solution will provide a modular, reliable, cost-effective and efficient combined heat & power (CHP) system suitable for a distributed, on-site power generation from agricultural wastes. The project objectives are:
-Research for the increase of biogas production yield, using physic-chemical and biological pre-treatment technologies at laboratory scale for enhancing anaerobic digestion effectiveness. After optimization of pre-treatment technologies, different inoculates and co-substrates will be investigated and used in laboratory experiments for maximization of biogas production: high methane and hydrogen content with minimum CO2 and CO production ratio.
-Development and optimization of current biogas reforming technologies: new catalysts for an efficient conversion of biogas to hydrogen.
-Research for the integration of PEM technologies using hydrogen produced from biogas.
-Construction and field tests of a pilot plant located in a selected olive oil mill exploitation.
-Techno-economic and environmental evaluation of power generation using integrated Biogas2PEM-FC technology.
-Dissemination of Biogas2PEM-FC project results for the feasibility demonstration of low cost biogas reforming and power generation.
