Pilots

Pilot Store & Go - KHIMOD

KHIMOD technology has been applied to several pilots in France and Europe. These real-life installations are  proven examples of field performance and service for the end user.

 

STORE & GO

KHIMOD developed the methanation unit within the Store&Go project.

Located in Troia, in the south of Italy, it is co-financed by the European Union.

The project's goal is to produce Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) for mobility use. The electricity needed for hydrogen production comes from nearby photovoltaic panels. The CO2 comes from atmospheric capture.

 

METHAMOD

METHAMOD is a pilot of a Power-to-Gas unit.

Installed in 2016 and located in the Villejuif city center, in France, it is co-financed by the French BPI (Banque Publique d'Investissement).

This synthetic methane production unit is autonomous in hydrogen production and can produce up to 8 000 m3 of synthetic methane per year. This on-demand production can be adjusted according to renewable electricity.

This pilot project is part of a wider approach experimenting several Power-to-gas installations for European Energy Networks.

 

CO2-SNG

The CO2-SNG project is the first of its kind to reuse CO2 from the exhaust of a coal-fired electricity power plant.

Based in Poland in a plant belonging to TAURON, this project is co-financed by the European Union.

Through a partnership with TAURON, this project demonstrates carbon cycle closure, which is the ability to transform CO2 from fossil coal into synthetic methane. This process results in a very low CO2 footprint for the plant.

 

JUPITER 1000

The JUPITER 1000 project is sponsored by key French actors of energy networks (both electric and gas). This Power-to-Gas unit is coordinated by GRTGaz

Based in Fos-sur-Mer, in the south of France, the project is co-financed by the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region and the European Union.

A small-scale Power-to-Gas unit is under development within the Jupiter 1000 project. This Power-to-Gas project is aimed toward the use of renewable energy from wind and the use of CO2 from  smokestacks in order to produce methane to inject into the network.

 

METHA2

METHA2 is a Waste-to-Gas project demonstrating the efficiency of combining organic methanization and catalytic methanation.

Located in the area of Alzette-Belval, in the east of France, this project  is co-financed by the French Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations.

The goal of this project is to utilize farm waste to produce compressed gas for mobility.

 

HEAT2FUEL

Heat2Fuel is a project aimed at demonstrating the transformation of biomass residue into biofuel (2nd generation).

Based in Austria, this project is co-financed by the European Union H2020 program.

Khimod is in charge of the Fischer-Tropsch Heat Exchanger-Reactor.

 

KSM PILOT

Specific KHIMOD Heat Exchanger-Reactors are dedicated to the production of Key Starting Materials (KSM) for Chemistry purposes.

Among these KSM, silicon production is targeted by CEA using a Heat Exchanger-Reactor within a lab-scale unit.

 

ME-OH PILOT

A test bed in Grenoble serves as a lab-size pilot of methanol direct production from CO2 and H2. This direct transformation paves the way toward the fields of Power-to-Liquid (P2L) and Carbon Capture and Use (CCU) of  CO2
