Fixed Bed Methanation of Biogeneous Syngas - Ideas for the Decentralized Approach

T. Kienberger, S. Mair & J. Karl
In order to develop SNG-production systems for small scale decentralized applications a methanation test system was erected at TU-Graz. This bench scale system consists of an allothermal gasifier connected with a methanation test rig. This test-rig combines catalytic methanation with catalytic reforming of high hydrocarbons in one fixed bed reactor. For the removal of particles, alkali-metal components and sulphur impurities, separate devices are used. A challenge for this in-situ tar reforming within the process of...
