Greece is a country with massive gas imports, increased demand in natural gas and with highly untapped solid biomass feedstock. The decentralized generation of Substitute Natural Gas through gasification, with the BioHPR technology, of straw and prunings, collected in rural areas close to the gas grid and the consumption of the biofuel in the urban areas, seems one of the most promising solutions in order to secure the national energy system and cover seamlessly the...
