The final report of the research project CO2freeSNG can be found here.

This report summarises the achievements during the project runtime from 01.07.2009–30.06.2012 of the RFCS-project RFCR-CT-2009-00003 ‘Substitute natural gas from coal with internal sequestration of CO2’ (CO2freeSNG). The project focused on the design and feasibility of medium-scale plants for the production of Substitute Natural Gas from coal based on an innovative indirect gasification technology, the so-called Heatpipe Reformer. Indirect gasification improves the process efficiency and reduces inherently the CO2 production of the proces.
