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.
