Denmark: Pilot biomass-to-biomethane plant a ‘success’

The Danish Gas Technology Centre (DGC) has hailed its pilot project to develop a new type of wood gasification plant as a success. 

The DGC said in a statement issued this week, the "relatively small" plant ran at an efficiency "close to 100%".

The project involved processing wood pellets to produce syngas. The syngas is sent through a bioreactor, where microbes are converted the gas to biogas with a purity so that it could be upgraded to biomethane. 

In the future the DGC said the work the "possibility" of combining biogas plants with new gasification plants, where there is mutual synergy and with a joint upgrade to biomethane. 

In total the pilot project cost DKK21m (€2.8m).
