Current biomass gasification technologies focus on maximising H2/syngas production and venting/ capturing the CO2 afterwards.
The challenge is not only on production but also CO2 capture during the process phase, increasing its efficiency and that of the gas separation and utilisation. Some of the technical challenges include:
Therefore, further development of advanced technologies will enable niche market opportunities for excess CO2 use that are scalable, commercially feasible at reduced cost and deliver greenhouse gas reduction targets for different industrial sectors.
