|E-GAS PLANT, Werlte, Germany
In Werlte, green hydrogen is initially produced from renewable electricity by electrolysis. The
hydrogen is then converted to methane in a catalytic methanation process using carbon dioxide
from a biogas plant operated with residual and waste materials. The plant preferably obtains
electricity for electrolysis when there is an oversupply due to high feed-in quantities of wind or
photovoltaic power. The final product is grid-ready synthetic natural gas (SNG) in a compressed
(CNG) or liquefied (LNG) state.

|BIOMASS HYBRID DRYER, Jyväskylä, Finland
VTT’s pilot hybrid dryer combines solar collectors and a heat pump in an efficient and flexible way. Various drying modes, such as solar alone, pump alone or solar and pump together, can be applied, depending on the availability of solar irradiation and electricity price. Especially, when electricity is cheap, this dryer is economical. Solar energy can always be utilized to boost the drying process. The control system allows flexibility between different operating modes.

|LIQUID WIND AND ÖVIK ENERGI – THE FIRST E-FUEL FACILITY, Örnsköldsvik, Sweden
Övik Energi will partner with Liquid Wind to provide CO2 for the first commercial-scale eFuel facility. Biogenic CO2 emissions from the energy facility will be captured and combined with renewable hydrogen to form liquid carbon neutral fuel. The fuel will be used by the marine industry to enable carbon neutral shipping. The site is located on the north east coast of Sweden, where Liquid Wind will also have access to the low-cost renewable electricity needed to produce the eFuel.

|THE ETHTEC LIGNOCELLULOSIC BIOETHANOL PILOT PLANT, Muswellbrook, Australia
Production initially of sugars and lignin from lignocellulosic feedstocks, then flexible use of the sugars for production of ethanol, other liquid biofuels, food additives, bioplastics precursors and other biochemicals. Biofuels are flexibly used for transport, agriculture, forestry, mining and electricity generation. Lignin is used for electricity generation and production of biochemicals.
