My PhD research focuses on novel routes for biomethane production, distribution, and use. Pyrolysis, as a novel method for biomethane production (96% CH4), is studied in comparison to the conventional method of anaerobic digestion of biomass. Pyrolysis also yields other high-value products such as biochar and heat which have many alternative uses in industries. Gas-to-liquid (GTL) technologies which enable conversion of biogas into energy carriers with higher energy density and facilitates fuel distribution is studied as alternative products which could supply biofuels to the swedish transportation fleet. The research also covers different storage options for biomethane such as hydrated biomethane and LBG. My research methodoloy has a life cycle assessment approach in studying the energy efficiency and environmnetal impacts (i.e. GHG emissions, eutrophication potential, acidification) of the novel technologies.
