Small projects

Small projects can be proposed by any f3 partner several times a year. After an internal review process, the f3 board decides on financing for the project. Normally, the scope, budget and timeline is limited.

Small projects can relate to any of the five project areas described for longer projects, but typically consist of mapping specific research areas, e.g. from different stake holders' perspecives, in a certain geographical region or as a state-of-art description. For more information on how to initiate f3-projects, contact the f3 office or the f3 coordinator in your organisation respectively.

Bio-SNG production by means of biomass gasification combined with MCEC technique

Project leader: Klas Engvall, KTH

Electrochemical molten carbonate cells (MCEC) can be a cost-effective process solution for cleaning/upgrading of gas in systems for production of bio-SNG from biomass. The study will evaluate the technical, economic and environmental conditions for this, comparing a general process concept to a corresponding reference process, based on classical techniques.

Gasification-based biofuels – GHG emissions and profitability analysis based on general and sector specific policy instruments

Project leader: Kristina Holmgren, IVL

Analysis of the economic performance of gasification- based biofuel production at different levels of general or sector specific policy instruments for different future energy market scenarios, comparing the costs and GHG emissions to systems where the biomass is used for power production and in electric vehicles.

Methanol as a renewable fuel – a knowledge synthesis

Project leader: Ingvar Landälv, LTU

The project will result in a comprehensive review of the current technical and economic aspects on production, distribution and use of renewable methanol for transportation purposes.

Phosphorus recovery in algae-based biofuels

Project leader: Viktor Andersson, Chalmers

The project studies the subject of seaweed-based fuels and how they can be made more attractive for society by performing phosphorus recycling from the products after processing of the seaweeds. The project output will be a comprehensive analysis of the available phosphorus recycle technologies as well as the results from modeling one recycle technology.
