Ethylene and benzene make only a small part of the total volume of producer gas (~ 5% vol.), but together they account for ~25% of the gas energy content. These compounds not only have a detrimental effect on catalysts e.g. in SNG production, but they have also a higher economic value than the main product, SNG. Thus, the separation and recovery of benzene and ethylene from producer gas is a promising option that opens up the way for the co-production of fuels and green chemicals from biomass gasification. With this background, the Green Birds project aims to increase the technical and economic feasibility of the co-production of energy/fuels and green chemicals from thermochemical conversion of biomass. The smart idea of Green Birds is the capture and recovery instead of the costly conversion of these valuable compounds from producer gas.
