Invitation to a Joint Call on cleaning and treatment of product gas from biomass gasifiers [Vervallen per 01-01-2010]

2007 June 1st

Aim of the call

The purpose of this call is to generate joint European industrially relevant research and development activities within ERA-NET BIOENERGY. This call builds on the experience that was gained in the first Joint Call on Small Scale Combustion of wood.

This call provides new opportunities for industries and researchers to take part in multilateral cooperation in the field of gasification of biomass for energetic use and to enhance the quality of the conducted research. Projects are expected to provide knowledge through research in order to develop solutions which are economically competitive, reliable and environmentally friendly.

Given the limited budget and also the content of the existing FP7 call from the European Commission the focal area that was selected for the joint call in the whole chain of biomass gasification is gas treatment and cleaning. The joint call will open on 1st June 2007 and will be closed on 6th September 2007.

This call will be published on the ERA-NET BIOENERGY web page and on the web pages of the national programmes. See: www.eranetbioenergy.net

Biomass gasification research in industry [Vervallen per 01-01-2010]

Background

This is a joint call by some of the ERA-NET BIOENERGY partners. ERA-NET-BIOENERGY is a network of national R&D programmes focusing on bioenergy. The network includes funding organisations from Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Further calls are intended to be launched within the ERA-NET BIOENERGY project. The ERA-NET BIOENERGY project has a duration of 4 years and ends December 2008. The funding agencies organising this joint call will be aiming to investigate best practises for arrangement of joint calls and subsequent evaluation of the resulting projects. We will also be aiming to provide a platform for the exchange of information and knowledge related to biomass gasification research in different countries through workshops and other dissemination activities.

The European Commission actively supports the use of biomass for energy as part of the EU aim to increase the use of renewable energy and to avoid an increase of CO2 concentration in the atmosphere. The European Union and its Member States recently decided to set a target of 20% CO2-reduction and the implementation of 20% Renewable Energy by the year 2020. Biomass and the use of gasification technology is needed to realise this goal, especially in liquid biofuel applications.

Biomass Gasification Research is very diverse and its applications can be seen in different areas. However the longterm perspective in the market is seen as promising. Gasification offers the possibility of higher efficiencies, high flexibility and good economics both for power production and for production of liquid biofuels.

The Gasification chain: Different kinds of resources can be gasified. Dried wood chips, wood residues, energy crops, agricultural residues or wastes can be used in a set of possible gasifiers. These different gasifiers (Entrained Flow, Circulating Fluidised Bed, etc.) all have their own characteristics and result in a specific quality of producer gas. This producer gas needs treatment and cleaning to make it usable for different kind of applications. Through cleaning and treatment, it can either be used to burn and produce power, or to produce a syngas that can be upgraded to methanol or Fischer Tropsch diesel.

The required research covers product gas cleaning, gas conditioning and gas conversion or utilisation. A lot of accompanying research is needed to tackle specific problems; e.g. gas composition measurement, fouling and scaling, cooling problems, catalysts (production, utilisation or degradation), etc.

Joint call topic

Research and Development for innovative and economically competitive gas treatment systems to improve the quality and composition of product gas from biomass gasifiers for energetic purposes (CHP, fuels, SNG,..).

Bijlage 242555.png

The topic for the joint call is restricted to Gas Cleaning and Gas Treatment. The call is open for the development of a range of different technologies to clean and treat the different produced gases from gasifiers, and enable the utilisation in all different applications.
