The LignoSys final report has been published as Renewtec Report 008:2018.
The most striking result is that small scale bioSNG technology based on allothermal gasification is able to compete with large scale bioSNG technology based on pressurised, oxygen-blown gasification not only in terms of GHG emissions, primary energy need and conversion efficiency but also in terms of bioSNG production cost!
Jörgen Held presented the LignoSys project at the Swedish Energy Agency Programme Conference, 29-30 November, 2017 in Eskilstuna.
The participant list included 50+ researchers presenting their projects within the Biofuels Programme. Projects related to both bio- and thermochemical conversion routes were presented.
Several presentations were related to bioSNG (biomethane through gasification and methanation) and it’s evident that the interest for biomethane is increasing. The high conversion efficiency, the low emissions and the cost competitiveness compared to other second generation biofuels are factors in favour of bioSNG.
