Objective

The basic goal of BICEPS is to demonstrate the generation of electricity, heat and refrigeration from biogases. The larger purpose behind the project is to further the development and competitiveness of next generation technologies for renewable energy, for the European market. To achieve this target, the project will demonstrate two 1 MW molten carbonate fuel cell systems (MCFC) using biogas / landfill gas and generating electricity, heat and refrigeration. Within BICEPS, core subunits of the fuel cell system will be markedly improved: a media-supply system including gas purification, an adsorption chiller with higher efficiency compared to state of the art, and a micro gas turbine to increase the overall electrical efficiency. The improvement of subunits, the scale-up of fuel cell size, and the new, cost effective gas purification for different biogases will reduce the overall costs for decentralized energy generation significantly.
