Edson Ng and Matt Babicki, G4 Insights Inc. Canada participated through Webex.

During the meeting the project structure and targets were presented and parameters of relevance for the system studies were selected, e.g. substrate/feedstock, choice of pretreatment methods, gas cleaning, upgrading and methanation processes.

Study tour – WoodRoll® pilot plant

On the 20th of April a part of the LignoSys consortium visited the 500 kW WoodRoll® pilot plant in Köping, Sweden. The plant was in operation, producing an ultraclean syngas suitable for methanation (or other biofuels) and CHP production. Design data for a 6 MWsyngas WoodRoll® plant was discussed and will serve as input for a part of the system studies within the framework of the LignoSys project.
