BEIC invited to chair the gasification session at the EBA conference

Dr. Jörgen Held has been invited by the European Biogas Association to chair the gasification session on the 25th of January at the EBA conference in Antwerp.

The session, “Gasification from R&D to commercialisation” includes presentations by Dr. Olivier Guerrini, ENGIE, Prof. Reinhard Rauch, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Prof. Henrik Thunman, Chalmers University of Technology and Dr. Christiaan van der Meijden, representing Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands.

BEIC has evaluated a new method for tightness control of gas pipes with a volume up to 24 m3

BEIC has on behalf of E.ON Gas Sweden AB evaluated a new metod for tightness control of gas pipes with a volume up to 24 m3.

The new method is proposed by AB Gas & Värmeteknik and based on simultaneous measurements of the test object and a reference vessel with precision manometers.

The full report “Utvärdering av ny metod för tryckprovning av volym upp till 24 m3” (in Swedish) is available under publications.

BEIC WP-leader in COASTAL Biogas

Baltic Energy Innovation Centre (BEIC) is a full partner and a WP-leader within the COASTAL Biogas proposal submitted on the 19th of December to the South Baltic Sea Programme.

COASTAL stands for Cluster On Anaerobic Digestion, Environmental Services and NuTrients RemovAL, and is focused on anaerobic digestion of cast seaweed in combination with digestate utilization as bio-fertilizer.

The project consortium consists of 20 partners out of which 6 are full project partners and WP-leaders;
FNR (DE) – lead partner
Gdansk University of Technology (PL)
Baltic Energy Innovation Centre (SE)
Rostock University (DE)
Roskilde University (DK)
Lithuanian Energy Institute (LT)

The proposed budget is close to 1.6 MEUR and covers lab scale and pilot testing, best practice and lessons learned, feasibility studies in close collaboration with partners able to implement the investigated technology and massive dissemination activities including 5 conferences and study tours.

Expected project start is 1 July 2018 and project end 30 June 2021.

BEIC joins the Biogas Roadmap of Scania

The biogas roadmap of Scania (Skåne), Sweden is a joint effort between biogas players and organizations in Scania to drive the development of biogas. The Regional Authority of Scania (Region Skåne) has taken on the role of coordinating Scania’s roadmap for biogas. More than 60 players have written the letter of intent and participate in the important work towards a sustainable and sustainable Scania.

Biogas is part of a closed cycle where society’s waste is used. Food residues and industrial waste are converted to valuable and climate-friendly products such as vehicle gas, electricity and cogeneration. The nutrients can be returned to arable land by using the digestate as a fertilizer.

Baltic Energy Innovation Centre is in favour of the development of renewable energy in general, and biomethane in particular, and has signed a Letter of Intent supporting the biogas roadmap of Scania.

More information about the Scania Biogas Roadmap (in Swedish) is available here.

BEIC joins BASIC Biogas as full partner

BASIC Biogas (Baltic Sea Innovation Cluster on Biogas) is a collaborative effort to reduce the eutrophication of the Baltic Sea.

Anaerobic digestion of maritime substrates in combination with digistate utilization is a way to physically remove phosphorus and nitrogen from the sea and at the same time remove the inconveniences with rottening seaweed on the beaches, produce energy and increase prosperity in coastal regions.

Partners from Denmark, Germany, Lithuania, Poland and Sweden will apply to the South Baltic Sea Programme for the establishment of the Baltic Sea Innovation Cluster on Biogas. Sweden will be represented by the Baltic Energy Innovation Centre, BEIC.
