The project aims to develop active, selective and stable low-cost nickel-based nanocatalysts to carry out gasification gas tar cracking. It also aims to develop a specific catalytic reactor for the use of nanocatalysts suitable for gas treatment under real operating conditions.

Project goal

The project aims to develop active, selective and stable low-cost nickel-based nanocatalysts to carry out gasification gas tar cracking. It also aims to develop a specific catalytic reactor for the use of nanocatalysts suitable for gas treatment under real operating conditions.

The following objectives have been defined to meet the main goal:

  • Develop a low-cost nickel-based nanocatalyst streamlined for gasification gas tar cracking.
  • Assess catalyst performance at the pilot plant.
  • Design and build a specific catalytic reactor for the nanocatalyst developed.
  • Install the catalytic reactor at a 0.5 MWe gasification plant.
  • Assess catalyst performance under real operating conditions.

The project submitted falls under Challenge 3: Clean, Efficient and Safe Energy.

A consortium, comprised of the following entities, has been created to implement the project.  

  • GREENE WASTE TO ENERGY
  • CARTIF: technology centre with vast experience in gasification processes and nanocatalyst synthesis.
