REGATEC 2019 takes place 20-21 May at Scandic triangeln, Malmö, Sweden. The interest in renewable methane including biogas, biomethane, bioSNG, electro-methane and landfill gas is huge. The exhibition was sold out at an early stage and the poster session is full. 70+ oral and visual presentations by leading experts and prominent industrial representatives, Network Plus, the exhibition and the poster session make REGATEC 2019 a vibrant hotspot for the biogas, gasification, power-to-gas and landfill gas communities.
So far almost 170 people from 24 countries have registered for the conference.
Within the LignoSys project the performance of three small scale (~10 MWth) thermochemical conversion routes for lignocellulosic feedstock to biomethane have been investigated.
The three thermochemical options are:
- Indirect gasification through the Heatpipe Reformer (HPR)
- PyroCatalytic Hydrogenation (PCH)
- Indirect gasification through the WoodRoll® process
The LignoSys final report has been published as Renewtec Report 008:2018.
The most striking result is that small scale bioSNG technology based on allothermal gasification is able to compete with large scale bioSNG technology based on pressurised, oxygen-blown gasification not only in terms of GHG emissions, primary energy need and conversion efficiency but also in terms of bioSNG production cost!
Here you can read the summary in English
Three production routes were included namely; Anaerobic digestion, Gasification and Power-to-gas.
For those interested I can recommend 5th International Conference on Renewable Energy Gas Technology, REGATEC 2018, 3-4 May in Toulouse. Here 60+ leading experts will present the latest advances within Anaerobic digestion, Gasification and Power-to-gas.
The conference will be opened by the Industrial Director of ENGIE, the President of the European Biogas Association and the EUROGAS General Secretary.

The 5th edition of International Conference on Renewable Energy Gas Technology, REGATEC 2018 takes place at Radisson BLU in Toulouse, France 3-4 May 2018.
France is becoming the new hotspot for biomethane due to the strong political will and the high feed-in tariff. We are happy to bring REGATEC to France and provide a platform for the AD, gasification and Power-to-gas community.
The 4th International Conference on Renewable Energy Gas Technology, REGATEC 2017 takes place 22-23 May 2017 at Parchi del Garda, Pacengo (Verona), ITALY.
The conference is in good progress and people have already started to register for the conference.

On the 29th of September, Renewtec visited the Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) in Petten.
The visit was part of the bioSNG technology inventory Renewtec AB is doing on behalf of an industrial client. The MILENA gasification process, the OLGA tar removal, and the ESME methanation were discussed in detailed and updates on the Alkmaar demonstration project (ambigo) were given.

The OLGA unit removes the tars above the water dew point. In this way the water can easily be removed by condensation without any contaminants in form of tars.
With 165 participants from 24 countries REGATEC 2016 set a new all-time-high record in terms of participants.
The conference was opened by the Governor of Scania, Margareta Pålsson and the president of the European Biogas Association, Dr. Jan Stambasky.
28 exhibitors, 25 oral presentations by leading biogas, gasification and Power-to-gas experts and 41 posters made REGATEC 2016 the ultimate meeting point for stakeholders interested in renewable methane.
For more info visit the REGATEC 2016 website.
The interest in REGATEC 2016 is huge and the event will be the largest biogas, gasification and Power-to-gas conference in Sweden during 2016.
The conference will be opened by the Governor of Scania, Margareta Pålsson, followed by a presentation by the President for the European Biogas Association, Dr. Jan Stambasky.
REGATEC 2016 has a truly international character and 60+ leading experts will highlight the latest advances, which in combination with a large exhibition provides excellent opportunities for networking and to find new collaboration and business partners.

The 3rd Conference of the European Biogas Association takes place 27-29 September in Ghent, Belgium.
EBA is looking for scientific presentations (oral and posters) on all conference topics, both from academia and the industry and the call for papers is open http://biogasconference.eu/programme/call-for-papers/
Oral presentations and posters will be evaluated by the Scientific Advisory Council (SAC) of EBA, consisting of acknowledged experts in anaerobic digestion and gasification technologies
Papers can be delivered on all conference topics: biogas and syngas production, biomethane production, circular economy, sustainable raw materials, digestate, biorefineries and future markets.
The SAC will evaluate the proposals based on their relevance to the topic, innovation of the concept and quality of presentation (both scientific evidence and oral skills). Upon peer review the SAC reserves the right to decide about oral or poster presentations where appropriate.
The 1-4 of June 23rd European Biomass Conference & Exhibition, EUBCE 2015, took place in Vienna, Austria.
In total 1394 people from 76 countries participated in the conference. Notable was the huge interest for biogas, biomethane and gasification but it’s no surprise since gaseous biofuels have several advantages over solid and liquid biofuels.
Renewtec acted as session chairman for the session “Thermochemical Conversion Processes – Industrial Approach” and represented the European Biogas Association in the the conference closing cermony.
“According to Dr Held, we should not speak about biomethane from AD, biomethane from gasification or from any other technology separately, but about biomethane from renewable resources as a whole, which is a chance for Europe to increase energy security, have cleaner environment and stimulate growth. AD and gasification play together in one team as complimentary technologies.”
