DEMOSOFC webinars – Fuel cells in industrial biogas applications

DEMOSOFC - the world's first industrial scale demonstration of waste water treatment with integrated power generation by SOFC fuel cells
DEMOSOFC – lessons learned

Interested in how integrated power generation by SOFC fuel cells can transform waste and water management from an energy consumer to an energy producer? Want to discover details of engineering and performance of the worlds first installation of SOFC fuel cells in a waste water treatment facility? To learn more, join us in a series of short webinars organized by the DEMOSOFC project, focusing on different aspects of applying fuel flexible SOFC fuel cell technology to industrial scale bio gas applications. In the 15-20 minute web presentations and following Q&A sessions, DEMOSOFC project partners will share their insights and experiences of engineering, operation and economics of this exciting application of fuel cell technology and Convion products.

Capturing the energy of waste water

Supply of clean water and efficient management of waste water are among the most vital urban environmental services. For communities, water related services are also often the biggest energy consumers – underlining the significance of water-energy nexus. It is therefore easy to view waste as a problem to be mitigated, something to be reduced to a tolerable level, and kept out of sight. Another mind-set is possible. Organic waste contains significant quantities of energy embedded in it. The facts that these streams of organic matter are distributed across our communities, trickle down in small streams and have low energy density, have made it difficult to capture that energy anywhere else but in locations with large populations and high population densities. A European project DEMOSOFC showcases a replicable concept by which power generation can be integrated into water services at superb efficiency in small and medium sized facilities, too, making good use of modular nature of fuel cells and fuel flexibility of SOFC technology. The video below presents the concept by an example from Collegno waste water treatment facility of SMAT in Turin region, Italy.

Convion SOFC generates zero emission electricity and heat from biogas in Italy

Convion has started operating a biogas fuelled C50 SOFC system in Italy. The start-up marks a launch of a demonstration of Convion’s fuel flexible C50 SOFC co-generation unit at an industrial biogas installation and an important milestone along the path of commercialization of the product. After a successful trial operation of the module in Finland and completion of site installation at Collegno waste water treatment plant of SMAT, the unit started producing power and heat for the plant’s own consumption. The installation is the largest solid oxide fuel cell plant in the world fueled by biogas directly. Continue reading “Convion SOFC generates zero emission electricity and heat from biogas in Italy”
