GAYA Project - Biomass gasification to produce "Green Energy"

The GAYA R&D project was launched in 2010 and combines 11 industrial and university partners under the coordination of GDF SUEZ.

The project goal is the holistically research of 2nd generation fuels (including technical, economical, as well as social and environmental issues) - especially Bio-SNG (synthetic natural gas made of renewable ressources).

Nearby Lyon (FRA) a demonstration plant will be errected and operated which covers up all relevant process steps (biomass treatment, gasification and methanation) and enables all-embracing research.

Gasification and methanation are based on the Biomass CHP plant Güssing and the Bio-SNG plant Güssing - enhanced by the technical and scientific expertise due to several years of operation.
