Technological development of biological methanization of synthesis gas assisted with electrolytic H2

  • 2021-2022

PROJECT SCOPE

  • To develop, at laboratory scale technology of biological methanization of synthesis gas (syngas) assisted with electrolytic H2 in order to increase methanation performance.
    • Selection and screening of microorganisms
    • Strain improvement through adaptive evolution

CENER ROLE

  • Development of cultivation process for biomethane production by fermentation
  • Design, at laboratory scale a 10L bioreactor prototype optimized for synthesis gas fermentation
  • Optimization trials of the process in CENER laboratories using synthetic gas
  • Validation of the bioreactor and the process with syngas in a gasification plant.
