The BioSNG technology was very successful at the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) Global Awards 2018, last night in Manchester, UK. It picked up three awards in total including the coveted Outstanding Achievement Award, sponsored by ExxonMobil.
The project also won the Energy Award sponsored by Rolls-Royce and the Sustainability Award sponsored by Unilever.
This consortium has developed an innovative and highly competitive process to convert biomass and municipal solid waste into BioSNG, a sustainable, drop-in replacement for natural gas that can be used to heat homes and power heavy-duty vehicles. The patented process design, which has been demonstrated at pilot scale, includes a two-stage gasification process and a simplified catalytic train, which helps maximise yield and minimises residues and effluents from the process. The project led to the development of the world’s first commercial demonstration plant to produce renewable, low-carbon BioSNG by gasification of household waste.
Andy Cornell, APP’s Commercial Director, said: “I’m really pleased that an organisation as prestigious as the IChemE has recognised the importance of the BioSNG technology. The process has an essential role to play in decarbonising heat and transport.”
