About this event

FlexSNG Horizon 2020 Project Invites you to participate in a free Topical Workshop:

Turning low cost bio-feedstocks into valuable products.

This event will be held on Thursday 3rd November, 09:30 – 18:00 CEST, at EIFER, Karlsruhe, Germany, and Online.

Join us for this industry workshop organised by FlexSNG H2020 Project, and hosted by project partner EIFER, in Karlsruhe, Germany. The event can be joined for free in person at Karlsruhe. In this 1-day event you will have the opportunity to learn about the future possibilities of biomethane and biochar from gasification, and how the FlexSNG is determining the “winning conditions” that make its implementation attractive.

You will have the opportunity to learn about these progressive technologies with presentations from industry on gasification and methanation, the FlexSNG process including innovative design aspects, and approaches for minimizing the cost of delivered biomass to these facilities.

The importance of policy and market opportunities for bioSNG and biochar will be emphasized, as well as the critical role of industrial symbiosis for winning economic conditions.

Event topics will cover:

  • process economies-of-scale with a de-risked process,
  • low-cost lower-quality biomass,
  • good policy support for biofuels and biochar, and
  • the role of industrial symbiosis.

There will also be opportunities for discussions and networking.
