Title: Demonstration of production and use of SNG (synthetic natural gas) from wood
Güssing (Austria) is conducting a demonstration project for the production of synthetic bio-fuel. The biomass power plant in Güssing will produce NOx-free synthesized gas from wood; this gas is especially suited for methanizing; thus part of this gas will be converted to methane. The primary goal of the project Wood to Methane is to demonstrate the economic feasibility of producing methane from wood. The goal is to establish within eight years a 20 MW plant that can economically convert wood to methane that can be fed into the natural gas grid.
