    Abstract : IPCC reported in its climate change report 2013 that the atmospheric concentrations of the greenhouse gases (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2), methane, and nitrous oxide now have reached the highest levels in the past 800,000 years. CO2 concentration has increased by 40% since pre-industrial times and the primary source is fossil fuel combustion. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cost-Effective Pathways for Gasification-Based Production of Biofuels

    Author : Johan Ahlström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biomethane; power-to-gas; Biorefinery; SNG; heat integration; bark; Gasification; sawmill; hydrogen;

    Abstract : A considerable number of studies indicate that biomethane produced through gasification of lignocellulosic biomass could contribute significantly to greenhouse gas emissions reduction in the transport sector. However, the production costs are high compared to fossil-based alternatives, which has limited deployment of the technology. READ MORE

  3. 3. Shaping Future Opportunities for Biomass Gasification - The Role of Integration

    Author : Johan Ahlström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; process integration; heat integration; power-to-gas; Biomethane; SNG; Biorefinery; hydrogen; sawmill; Gasification;

    Abstract : A considerable number of studies indicate that biofuels produced from lignocellulosic biomass will most probably play a significant role in achieving the climate goals stated in the Paris agreement. Several candidate technologies could be implemented to produce these fuels, and one of the most promising is thermal gasification. READ MORE

  4. 4. Indirect gasification production of biomethane for use in heavy-duty state-of-the-art gas engines

    Author : Alberto Alamia; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; well-to-wheel; biomethane; gas engines; SNG; DFB gasifier; process simulation; dual fuel; Biomass gasification;

    Abstract : The climate targets set for the European transport sector have stimulated intensiveresearch by groups in academia, the energy industry, and vehicle manufacturing in theGothenburg region into biomethane production via indirect gasification of lignocellulosebiomass and the development of advanced gas engine technologies.This work presents the results of a comprehensive study of biomethane production andutilization in heavy duty engines.

  5. 5. Large-Scale Production and Use of Biomethane

    Author : Alberto Alamia; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; dual fuel; Biomass gasification; SNG; power-to-gas; well-to-wheel; biomethane; biorefinery; GoBiGas; DFB gasifier; process simulation;

    Abstract : Societal ambitions to create an economy based on renewable resources, require the development of technologies transforming these resources into energy-carrying products and biomaterials. Dual fluidized bed (DFB) gasification represents a key technology for achieving sustainability targets, as it is a scalable and highly efficient route for the conversion of biomass. READ MORE
