Short description
Goal is to develop a catalytic reaction mechanism for the methanation of biogas over nickel catalysts at pressures up to 10 bar by carrying out experiments in a laboratory scale reactor. The developed mechanism, in conjunction with pilot scale experiments at GanyMeth fluidized bed (FB) test rig, will lead to a validated macroscopic numerical model for the entire FB and will optimize and upscale the process to industrial sizes. Simulations will finally assess the performance and cost effectiveness of the commercial process.
