Final Report - BIOCELLUS (Biomass fuel cell utility system)

Project ID: 502759
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


This is the final report of the BIOCELLUS project, which addressed the following two challenges. First, the gas quality necessary for a safe operation of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) should be determined by testing different membranes with real wood gas. Once the fuel cell requirements are known, an appropriate gas cleaning unit can be specified and constructed. The second part of the project concentrated on the integration of the biomass gasifier with the SOFC. A new concept, the so-called TopCycle, has been developed for thermal integration. It has been evaluated thermodynamically and economically and first steps towards its technical realisation have been made.

The report begins with explaining the project's background, motivation and general objectives. It provides details about the experiments conducted, the work done and the results obtained under each of the research steps taken. It finally refers to dissemination actions and plans.
