SP2 Leader,SINTEF Energy Research
SP2 encompasses combustion, gasification, pyrolysis, anaerobic digestion and torrefaction. The work is especially focused on low-quality feedstocks, which are central in increasing the bioenergy production in Norway. Challenging biomass includes forest and agricultural residues, organic waste and sewage sludge, which are all largely unexploited in Norway today.

WP2.1 – Combustion - Leader: Øyvind Skreiberg
WP2.2 – Gasification - Leader: Michaël Becidan
WP2.3 – Pyrolysis - Leader: Khanh-Quang Tran
WP2.4 – Anaerobic Digestion - Leader: Roald Sørheim
WP2.5 – KMB STOP - Leader: Øyvind Skreiberg
Important aspects to mention from the work in SP2 is the mix of long-term challenges together with short-term "troubleshooting" discussions. The methods used span from experiments in laboratory-scale reactors, advanced measurement equipment and analytical methods, to investigations at full-scale facilities, and additionally modelling as well as desk studies. In 2015 there has been strong involvement of CenBio industry in both work at full-scale plants and in writing articles. Non-CenBio actors have been involved whenever necessary for the benefit of CenBio.
More information on the research activities can be found in the latest CenBio Annual Report.
