Gasification of biofuel with infrasound

Reference number
Coordinator Swedish Infrasound Technology AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 300 000
Project duration March 2019 - August 2019
Status Completed
Venture Innovative Startups

Purpose and goal

The project aimed to investigate and describe the technical potential for gasification of biomass using infrasound. The main goal was to attract relevant market stakeholders for future partnerships. This has been achieved by the technology being developed so that tests describing the technical potential can be carried out. The tests show great technical and commercial potential and the technology has aroused the interest of a strong and relevant market actor.

Expected results and effects

The project has led to: 1. A further developed test plant design 2. An increased understanding of the technical potential and the impact of infrarsound on the gasification process 3. Initial discussions and expressed interest in the technology of relevant market actor

Planned approach and implementation

It was a successful concept to start the project with a compilation of knowledge. This was done by organizing a workshop at ÅF with several experts who could provide input on the technical development work, requirements and methodology at an early stage. An advantage of this was also that this workshop led to a significant networking for the next steps. The project group has worked flexibly and agile which has enabled necessary changes during the design and test work. One lesson learned is that it is hard to run projects during holiday time.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
