New Pathways to Efficient Use of Biomass for Power and Transportation (2ndGenerationBiogas)

Scope of project

  • Demonstrate the technical feasibility of new highly efficient process paths to pipeline-grade methane from a very broad range of biomass (wood, solid agricultural residues, manure, sludges etc).
  • Assess the impact of such technologies in the complex environment of biomass resources, enduses and environmental performance, with the ultimate goal to draw a roadmap towards clean and eco-efficient use of biomass in Switzerland in 2030.

In an interdisciplinary effort involving groups from all the institutions of the ETH domain we will work towards these goals. The collaborative structure of the project team is shown in the figure below.
