BioSNG production generally involves the following steps:
The BioSNG pilot and commercial plants in Swindon use oxy-steam fluidised bed gasification and a plasma converter to remove tars and vitrify ash and heavy metals. Wet scrubbing systems are used for bulk removal of acid and alkaline contaminants and a series of guard beds are used for final polishing. A sweet water gas shift is followed by a series of methanation reactors. In the pilot plant a pressure swing adsorbtion system is used to remove carbon dioxide, but in the commercial facility a chemical scrubbing system is used.
There are a number of projects in Europe and the USA that produce BioSNG. The 20 MW GoBiGas facility in Sweden is producing renewable gas from wood residues. ENGIE has committed substantial funds to a facility in France which is nearing completion of the construction phase and a further plant is under development in Holland. Uniquely, our projects are focused on the conversion of waste derived biomass to BioSNG as this is represents the UK’s largest biomass resource.
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...Read more
