Agriculture 2020

Agriculture will become an important supplier of sustainable energy services for society. However, this sector can only fulfil this role if it operates on the base of sustainable energy provision itself. The project will determine the necessary measures to achieve this state for a concrete regional setting (eastern Styria) by the year 2020.

Economic chances of biogas supply for gas fuel stations in regions, which are not connected to the natural gas grid.

Examination of the economy of biogas supply for gas fuel stations in regions, which are not connected to the natural gas grid. Development of an economically attractive, technologically and cost-optimized biogas utility system for gas stations without connection to the natural gas grid.

Safety and Authorization of Biomass Gasification Plants

Biomass gasification is a success promising technology for the combined heat and power production based on the utilization of domestic biomass. With this project a safety and commissioning guideline for the technology was created for the enhancement of the technology's market introduction.

"BIO-VISION II"

At the predefined locations of a dairy in Upper Austria and a brewery in Lower Austria the demonstration units of biogas - fuel cell are to be planned in the detail. Therefore exact economical and technical investigations and documentations will be prepared. Important goals are optimized energetic integration and best economical solutions.

Development of agitation systems in biogas plants in order to optimize mixing-behaviour and to reduce energy demand with the help of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation

The purpose of this project is the investigation of the mixing-behaviour and performance of the agitation systems in biogas plants, and to present them through Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation. This EDP-tool can model and predict the actual fluid dynamics in a closed system. Thus it may help to plan optimal reactor geometries, position and combination of agitation systems as well as to minimize the energy requirements.
