This collection includes the scientific publications from the Horizon 2020 FLEDGED project that aims at producing DME (Dimethyl Ether) from biomass with an efficient and low-cost process. The main results are related with evaluation and demonstration of Sorption-Enhanced Gasification (SEG), for flexible production of syngas from biomass, and Sorption-Enhanced DME Synthesis (SEDMES), for improved single-passage conversion from syngas to DME.
Additional objectives of the project are demonstration of plant flexibility to different feedstocks (from woody biomass to waste organic fraction) and to the injection of hydrogen from electrolysis (Power-to-X). The possibility of pure CO2 separation for storage purposes is also considered (Bio-CCS) with the goal of a negative-emissions fuel.
