Flexible dimethyl ether production from biomass gasification with sorption-enhanced processes

FLEDGED will deliver a process for bio-based dimethyl ether (DME) production from biomass. It will combine a flexible sorption enhanced gasification (SEG) process and a novel sorption enhanced DME synthesis (SEDMES) process to produce DME from biomass with an efficient and low cost process.

Quantis will guide the design and development of the investigated value chains towards more sustainable solutions, benchmark the investigated technology against alternative fuel technologies (including competitive biofuels), and help future suppliers and customers make more informed decisions.
