Bio4fuels is a Centre for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME) based at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) and lead by SINTEF.
The Centre aims to develop innovative technology and support industries to realize economic and sustainable conversion of lignocellulosis biomass and organic residues to transportation fuels, along with added value chemicals, heat and power.
Key research is to increase the efficiencies and yields of major process steps within the different value chains, as well as achieving techno-economic insights for the optimal integration within and across value chains and greater understanding of the environmental consequences of the various value chains.
ZEG power will contribute to Bio4Fuels with its experience on the use of biofuels for the co-production of hydrogen and electricity.
ASCENT (2014-2017) is an EU 7RP joint project. The project addresses a pressing need for new concepts that can reduce the energy demand associated with CO2 capture during power generation.
The project work is focused on pre-combustion technologies: CO2 capture using energy efficient high temperature solid-state sorbents separating CO2 during conversion of carbonaceous gases into H2.
The Hynor Lillestrøm installation is the only Hydrogen refuelling station in Norway that also facilitates testing and demonstration of new Norwegian technology. The ambition is to be an international centre with focus on innovation and industrial development of Hydrogen used for transportation purposes. Hynor Lillestrøm collaborates with a number of companies, institutes and educational institutions, and provision is made for utilization of the plant in national and international projects for testing and demonstration of relevant technologies. ZEG Power is responsible for the daily operation of the plant.
