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.
Compilation of guidelines and benchmarks for "best biogas practice" to ensure efficient biogas production. Constitution of an Austrian network including all partners in the biogas production cycle.
The main objectives of this project are to discuss the economic feasibility of the production and distribution of biogas used as transportation fuel and to identify those types of local distribution systems that are already economically feasible under the present economic conditions in Austria.
Construction of a local biogas grid in Güssing - Technical and economical concept for the implementation
Decentralized energy supply systems are a very important contribution for the use of regional potentials as these technical solutions are always fitted to specific conditions. Local biogas grids should complement already existing technologies and be analyzed accordingly.
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.
Direct Supply with Cold, Heat, Electricity and further Added Values Using Renewable Fuel for Stationary Fuel Cells
Fuel cells can use local resources and provide regional energy support if optimized. BIO-VISION leads to a demo-project.
Production of natural gas substitute with a newly developed gas permeation technology. Optimization of the process with biogas from energy crops fermentation. Screening of new methods of online product gas quality control.
The project deals with the production of synthesis gas from biological fuels and biological residues using steam blown gasification. This synthesis gas will be used for polygeneration especially for heat, power, gaseous (substitute natural gas, SNG) and/or liquid fuel production.
Development of a concept that shows the possibility of changing the energy supply of a district from fossil to 100% renewable energy carrier
Method for assessment of technological aspects of biogas supply to existing gas grids. Definition of characteristic numbers for quantitative an qualitative analysis. Aspects of systems integration.
Further enhancement of biogas production in Vorarlberg with the possible use over the natural gas grid; analysis of the potential availability of fermentation substrates; scenarios for the increase of production capacities in combination with existing plants; technical blueprint of realistic scenarios; economic feasibility of the described scenarios.
Proof of the technical and economic feasibility of the utilization of fermentation gas from agricultural fermentation gas facilities by means of local micro grids.
Obtaining, processing and dissemination of information about international development in the field of thermal gasification of biomass as well as leadership of several key aspects of the task.
Key issues for realisation and dissemination of extraction of biogas from byproducts, waste and bioenergy crops were modulated by international experts.
IEA Bioenergy Task 39: Commercialization of conventional and advanced liquid biofuels from biomass (working period 2016 - 2018)
IEA Bioenergy Task 39 deals with the commercialization of conventional and advanced biofuels, including innovative raw materials such as micro-algae, their economic, environmental and social assessment and the investigation of relevant policies. Findings from countries with a committed biofuels policy are made accessible to Austria, and success stories of Austrian industry, research and policy are promoted internationally.
Analysis of potentials as well as technical / economical and organisational solutions to integrate decentralised heating power production from renewables into existing fossil heating grids.
The biogas production from energy crops will be analyzed and optimized. Energy crops are grown in an environmentally friendly and sustainable crop rotation system. The project provides a secure basis of data for the biogas production and utilisation. Farmers will invest more into the biogas technology.
Polygeneration of bioethanol, biogas, electricity and heat through operating community Sun Power Plant Project GesbR.
Analysis of the economic feasibility of fuel-bioethanol production in the region Harmansdorf/Rückersdorf (NÖ), partner of Leaderregion "10 vor Wien", incorporating innovative combinations with biogas and process heat supplying plants considering also lignocellulosic material as feedstock for bioethanol- and biogas production.
Production and upgrading of fermentation gas at the location Wals-Siezenheim to be feed into the natural gas distribution network
Production and multistage purification process of approx. 150 m³/ h biogas in Wals-Siezenheim. Prove the feasibility of trouble-free feeding of biogas into the natural gas grid of the Salzburg AG within an operation period of 3 years.
Development of an calculation tool for future biogas power plant operators and planners to check the regional acceptance of their power plants as well as possible energy-plants and their availability.
