1/10/2005 (Renews 4) – CHRISGAS: Integrated Project on Hydrogen from Biomass

The transport sector is the largest oil user and the largest producer of greenhouse gases in the world. Reducing the dependence of the transport sector on fossil fuels by increasing the share of biomass-derived motor fuels can improve security of supply, give better price stability, and lower CO2 emissions, opening the way to a cleaner and more sustainable future. This is where the CHRISGAS Integrated Project comes in.

1/02/2005 (Renews 3) – Clean hydrogen rich synthesis gas – CHRISGAS

CHRISGAS is an integrated project that aims to demonstrate, within a five-year period, the production of a clean hydrogen rich synthesis gas from biomass. This will be based on steam/oxygen blown gasification of biomass, followed by hot gas cleaning to remove particulates, and steam reforming of tar and light hydrocarbons to further enhance the hydrogen yield.

1/07/2004 (Renews 2) – Hungary: ready for green energy

In 2003, renewables had a 3.6% share of Hungary’s total primary energy supply, but the share of renewables in electrical power supply was only 0.5%. Hungary aims to achieve 5% of total primary energy and 3.6% of the power supply from renewables by 2010. Currently, investment in renewable energy technology is small – the concept of environmental protection is fairly new and research funding in general is low: Hungary spent only 1% of its GDP on RTD in 2003.
