Advanced prediction, monitoring and controlling of anaerobic digestion processes behaviour towards biogas usage in Fuel Cells, Final Publishable Report

Project ID: ENK6-CT-2001-00518
Funded under: FP5-EESD


AMONCO aims at the cost-effective utilisation of Biogas from the Anaerobic Digestion (AD) in Fuel Cells (FCs). The precondition for the use of Biogas in FCs is the avoidance, or elimination respective reduction of detrimental trace gases, which are potentially harmful for FCs. Thus AMONCO has the following core objectives:
a) Comprehensive Biogas analyses in quality and quantity on a detailed level - identifying harmful trace gases for FCs, b) Avoidance of detrimental trace gases in Biogas through optimal composition of the feedstock, c) Advanced controlling of the AD process to hinder the formation of trace gases while keeping a high CH4 yield, d) Suitable and cost-effective Biogas Cleaning towards the utilisation in Fuel Cells, e) Investigation and Assessment of the effects of Biogas in FCs through Single Cell tests and f) Development of techno-economic implementation strategy for the candidate countries.
