Substitute natural gas from coal with internal sequestration of CO2 (CO2freeSNG)

CO2freeSNG is a research project with the runtime from 01.07.2009–30.06.2012 funded by the Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS) under RFCS-project-Number RFCR-CT-2009-00003 ‘Substitute natural gas from coal with internal sequestration of CO2’ (CO2freeSNG).

RFCS

The  conversion  of  coal  into  so-called  Substitute  Natural  Gas  (SNG)  will  reduce  dependencies  on Non-European Natural Gas resources. However, capacities of existing gas grids limit the allowable plant size. 
 
An innovative steam gasification technology 
 
-  promises competitive Coal-to-SNG plants in the medium-scale power range between 50 to 500 MW
-  reduces CO2 production inherently by 1/3 
 
The  consortium  will  up-scale  gasification,  methanation  and  sequestration  technologies  that  have been  developed  successfully  for  the  conversion  of  biomass  and  will  evaluate  the  technical  and economical application of this concept for coal by means of gasification and methanation tests at an existing gasification plant.
