Integrating Bioenergy in Energy Systems

Biomass to H2, A Carbon Negativity Upgrading of Waste

Short Introductive summary

The aim of the study is to analyze the conversion of waste biomasses into hydrogen through an integrated process of: Anaerobic Digestion (AD), fast pyrolysis, and steam reforming of intermediate energy carriers (biogas, syngas and bio-oil) followed by CO2 separation by a membrane reactor. Experimental results from lab-scale AD and screw pyrolysis reactors are used to validate the numerical model built for the analysis. Results have highlighted the importance of the Thermal Energy Storage (TES) integration into the system to increase the energy efficiency. Advanced control strategy is also crucial for maximizing the conversion efficiency to avoid intermittent and ineffective operations.
