In this task the techno-economics of the alternative process concepts for the SNG and/or H2 production at 50-200 MW size range are evaluated. These will be compared to the Finnish oxygen-blown BTL-technology.

Alternative process and integration possibilities are considered especially for the final steps of the process concept

• various reforming methods (externally heated vs. autothermal)
• methods for end product separation (shift conversion and methanation, PSA)
• possibilities for the utilisation of the off-gases (power generation vs. reformer heating vs. internal loops)
• integration possibilities of the gasification-synthesis process to various industrial processes
