Gasification of straw at DGC

The Danish Gas Technology Centre (DGC) has acquired a lab scale Heatpipe Reformer. Within the LignoSys project DGC will gasify pelletized straw and the results will serve as an input for the system studies performed by Lund University.

On the 23rd of July the project coordinator visited DGC where a measurement campaign on pelletized straw took place.

LignoSys at Swedish Energy Agency Programme Conference

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.

LignoSys at EBA conference – Ghent, Belgium

The biennial European Biogas Association conference took place 27-29 September 2016 in Ghent, Belgium.


Jörgen Held gave a presentation on Biomethane production through thermochemical conversion of biomass and waste. The presentation included information about WoodRoll® which is one of the conversion technologies that is studied within LignoSys as well as a link to the LignoSys project.

Since several of the project partners were present at the conference an informal update of the project progress was provided by the project coordinator.

LignoSys in good progress

The LignoSys project is in good progress. Additional parameters such as relevant moisture and ash content of the woody biomass have been selected. Data from Cortus regarding their proprietary WoodRoll® technology has been gathered.

On the 16th of September the coordinator and Prof. Pål Börjesson and Johanna Olofsson, Lund University had a meeting to discuss the data needed for the system studies.
