BIGPower - Advanced Biomass Gasification for High-Efficiency Power


Project number: 019761
Thematic priority: SUST DEV - 1.2.5
Duration: 39 months (October 2005-December 2008)

The main objectives of the project

  • To develop reliable, cost-effective and fuel flexible gasification technologies for high-efficiency small-to-medium scale (1-100 MWe ) power production from biomass.

  • To create the fundamental and technical basis for successful industrial follow-up developments and demonstration projects aiming to commercial breakthrough by 2010-20.

  • To carry out in pre-competitive manner well-focused R&D activities on the key bottlenecks of advanced biomass gasification power systems.
