Abstract
CarbonNeutralLNG targets the cost-competitive and carbon effective exploitation of carbon sources from biomass in order to replace fossil diesel fuels with renewable ‘electricity enhanced bioLNG’ on a global scale. Low-carbon transportation will increasingly depend on liquid and gaseous energy carriers like Liquefied Natural Gas from biomass (bioLNG). Low-cost renewable energy (electricity and biomass) and reduced process complexity will be the main drivers for reduced marginal costs and increased carbon efficiency of bioLNG synthesis. Electricity enhanced synthesis of energy carriers from biomass increases the yield from a certain amount of forest residues or biowastes by a factor of 2.
