The objective of the proposed subproject is to cover the full technical and commercial
impact of locating a plant producing DME/methanol from black liquor at a Södra
Cell pulp mill located in Mörrum, Sweden.
Out of the eight work packages, there are three basically scientific key activities
for SP 3:
- WP 1 will generate plant data which is to become a basis for simulation
of the commercial and demo plant concepts
- WP 4 will generate laboratory data from pulp cooking tests with the new
type of cooking liquor produced through gasification applied to the pulp mill
which shall hose the demonstration plant;
- WP 5 will generate engine test results when run with DME of such a quality
which can be expected from real DME producing plant.
Results will provide input data for the preliminary engineering design of
the demo plant at the Södra Cell Mörrum pulp mill for which the pulp
tests are carried out. The engineering will both address technical plant features
in syn-gas handling and conversion and investigate impact on the pulp mill when
the demo plant is linked to the mill operation. Activities will address the fuel
logistics, handling and trading for both DME and methanol and will also focus
on the LCA aspects of SP 3.
