Flexible Production of Synthetic Natural Gas and Biochar via Gasification of Biomass and Waste Feedstocks

Project description

New technology for synthetic natural gas production

The EU-funded FlexSNG project will develop a flexible and cost-effective gasification-based process to generate pipeline-quality biomethane, high-value biochar and renewable heat from low-quality biomass residues and biogenic waste. The process can switch between two operation modes according to price signals and market demand: 1) co-production of biomethane, biochar and heat, and 2) maximised production of biomethane and heat alone. The high-purity biomethane can be distributed via the existing gas infrastructure, targeting the transport, industry and energy production sectors. The co-produced biochar can be used to displace fossil fuels in energy production and industry or in other applications, such as soil amendment. The FlexSNG approach is expected to reduce biomethane production costs by 30 % compared to state-of-the-art biomass-to-SNG technologies.
