Biomass gasification with negative carbon emission through innovative CO2 capture and utilisation and integration with energy storage

Objective

This Research and Innovation Staff Exchange project aims to develop and maintain long term collaborations between universities in the EU with China and Australia. This collaboration will build a truly world-leading group through a total of 254 person months of structured international and intersectoral staff exchanges involving 77 individual researchers to innovate next generation low carbon fuel production. Extensive training and knowledge transfer activities will be carried out to enhance career development of the project participants.
The research and innovation unites researchers with a common goal to advance biomass gasification technology by integrating CO2 capture and utilisation with multifunctional catalyst materials. Consequently, the BIOMASS-CCU consortium aims to maximize the environmental benefit of carbon emission, and enhance the economic feasibility by producing high value alkenes from CO2 using conventional and advanced non-thermal catalysis. Additionally, through the combination with energy storage and novel heat exchange approaches, energy efficiency of biomass gasification will be significantly enhanced. Extensive techno-economic and life cycle analysis will be carried out to justify the advantages of the proposed biomass gasification technology.
BIOMASS-CCU will create a multi-disciplinary consortium consisting of engineers, chemists, material scientists, physicists and applied mathematicians to develop advanced biomass gasification. This project will provide an innovative and economic biomass waste gasification concept for European municipalities, energy production companies and SME’s. The EU partners plan exploitation of the technology through spin-out companies and industrial partnerships. Also, the development of advanced CO2 capture and conversion technologies will promote the jobs creation in low carbon fuels for sustainable future.
