Unlocking unused bio-WASTE resources with loW cost cleAning and Thermal inTegration with Solid oxide fuel cells

Project description

Bringing clean electricity and heat to small-scale farms in Europe

The EU-funded WASTE2WATTS project aims to develop a one-stop solution for the conversion of biogas from a large variety of waste feedstock to clean and efficient electricity and heat, directly exploitable at the site where the biogas is produced. Eleven partners from four countries are joining efforts to engineer a solid oxide fuel cell system for the production of both heat and power. Focus will be placed on low-cost technologies for removing pollutants from biogas and on optimal thermal system integration. Furthermore, the project's partners will develop cleaning approaches and hardware for small-scale units (5–50 kWe) and medium- to large-scale units (more than 500 kWe). For both cases, the hardware will be built and installed on real biogas sites treating different types of waste.
