The FlexSNG case studies will evaluate the implementation potential of the FlexSNG concept in different regions in Canada and Europe. The aim is to identify the most economically attractive environment for a subsequent flagship demonstration through an analysis of the energy markets in four case study regions:
2) Northern Europe (Sweden and Finland)
3) Central Europe (France and Germany)
4) Southern Europe (Italy and Greece)
Optimization of feedstock supply chain
As feedstock costs often account for more than half of the biofuel production costs, FlexSNG aims at demonstrating 20% reduction in feedstock supply costs throughout the optimization of the feedstock supply chain. The project is based on the utilization of lower quality biomass residues and biogenic waste fractions that are available at low cost or, in the case of wastes, even at zero or negative costs.
